LOFT Petite blouse (similar in XXS-XXL; love but no petites), Cole Haan heels, ebay pearls, Chanel WOC
This outfit is from early Fall, before I sold the yellow heels to a lovely reader. An easy tip for wearing prints and patterns is to pair them with monochromatic pieces. Or, if you tend to wear a lot of solid basics, add some interest to your outfit with a print layer in the same color family...
After buying this cardigan (and now some pumps), I've come to realize what a versatile "neutral" leopard print is. It's definitely one of my wardrobe staples. As long as the print is done right (classic color family, not too gaudy or cheap), it pairs easily with so many things. In this old video, I show several ways to wear this cardigan.
In the video, I also talked about defining your waist by tucking in your cardigan. I'm sure this styling trick has been around for ages, but I was so ecstatic to accidentally learn it last year, during the process of getting dressed. Check out before and afters to see what a difference it makes. I tried to switch it up here by overlapping the front, wrap-style, before tucking it in, but this look was met by my coworker's wrinkly nose. Oh, well - chalk it up to experimentation.
