Florals, Dots and Leopard

I went crazy with pattern-mixing in this outfit. It was an experiment and I think I like it.

Jacket: Forever 21
Pants: Macy’s
T-shirt: Papaya
Satin pumps: Two Lips via DSW

I don’t have a lot of floral pieces in my wardrobe and I really liked the floral jackets I’d seen in magazines. I didn’t want to invest in a jacket with a trendy pattern so I looked at lower-end stores. Forever 21 isn’t my favorite place to shop but I can count on them for inexpensive versions of trends.

I already had the shoes, pants and top so I only had to combine them this way to copy the trend of florals and pattern-mixing. Why does it work? The jacket has black and white in it so the shirt complements it. there’s also green in the jacket so the pants aren’t adding a new element. And leopard is practically a neutral so I thought, “what the heck?”

It’s a fun look and I can take it down a notch by swapping the leopard shoes for a solid pair. I can swap out the top for a plain T if I want to calm things down even more. But for now, I’m going all out with the colors and patterns. It’s only fashion, right?

I’ve linked up with What I Wore Wednesday at The Pleated Poppy and at Transatlantic Blonde. Check out what other bloggers are wearing!

  1. Man. A floral blazer with a leopard shoe is just one of my favorite things ever. And that floral blazer is delightful; it’s all dark and moody!

  2. Love that jacket!!! I was just there (Forever 21) but I didn’t see it.

  3. This look is super cute! I have a similar jacket from Cotton On but I wish I had some rose pants to pair it with. It’s definitely not too much – just the right pop!

  4. I like the way you dressed, mix and pattern is looking awesome. Jacket is going good with green pant. I want to buy it.

  5. I absolutely love it – brava!!!
