Black and White Stripes and Floral

I love mixing patterns, especially when the patterns are in the same color family. I’m mixing and matching black and white again here. I did that recently with houndstooth, paisley and stripes. In this look, only the top is the same.


Top: Marshall’s
Skirt: Thrifted
Boots: MIA
Socks: Sock it to Me

I wore this skirt on the blog a couple of years ago. that time, I was in Florida and made it a warm-weather look. It’s not bad out now, but it’s not Florida warm either. So I stuck with boots.

Peeking out of my boots are my black and white star knee-socks. You can’t see much of them, but technically they count as a third pattern. And stars are an appropriate theme for today. If you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ll know the reference.

May the Forth be with you!

  2. Great pattern-mixing, Jean, you look really modern and cool. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

  3. Ah!! I missed the opportunity to say “May the fourth be with you” yesterday!! Oh well, there’s always next year! 🙂

    I love black and white monochromatic looks and it’s great for pattern mixing! The striped top is cute and your skirt is so pretty, with sandals as you wore in Florida or with boots. ♥

  4. Fantastic mix of print, Jean.. I have to try it myself 🙂

    The print mix is masterful, but that hanky-hem with the boots is brilliant. Love every piece and you are looking grand. You sure are a chip off your mom’s block, but you have your own sense of style that is as effective as it comes.

  6. Lovely outfit, Jean. The skirt looks very flattering on you!

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
