Mixing prints can be a fashion challenge, but when executed well, can make a killer outfit. My best advice, if you’re thinking about stepping out of your fashion comfort zone, is to start off with mixing up the classics, (like I did) enter polka dots and stripes. I added an acid wash denim jacket from Torrid to complete my textured look. From that point, mix and match to your hearts content, but don’t get too carried away, you don’t want to look like you got dressed in the dark.
There’s a list of staple items every girl, skinny or plus-size should have in her closet, the LBD, a blazer and one of my favorites, a denim jacket. Denim jackets can be worn through out the year, summer or fall and go great with an array of looks, from a sexy LBD, to high waisted shorts. I’ve worn this acid wash one from Torrid with denim skinny jeans, to these polka shorts, to an LBD–it gives my look this extra funky cool edge that I don’t mind.
