5 Tips For Mixing Bold Prints

One of my favorite styles is mixing prints. There is something about mixing bold prints that always catches my eye. I love adding edge to ensembles. Since I was a teenager, I've been popping in a touch of leopard print here and there. Or popping in some studs with stripes. The list goes on haha. 

Here are 5 of my tips for mixing bold prints! 

1) Be as bold as the prints you’re wearing! Half of making an outfit look good is ‘how you wear it’

2) You wear the clothes, don’t let the clothes wear you. Instilling that mantra into your soul will allot you the ability to really rock anything.

3) Take risks. Obvi leopard print and stripes don’t “match” but that’s part of the fun + sassiness that comes with mixing prints. Taking fashion risks are what set you apart and help you “speak” with your clothing. 

4) Find comfort in what you pick. Bold prints are a statement in themselves…which may be a lot for some. If a bold print is pushing it for you, don’t take yourself into total discomfort. Style yourself with comfort in mind; don't rock a look that makes you feel self conscience. Within being bold, find comfort.

5) Throw fashion "rules" out the window. In a matter of speaking fashion is art and art is subjective. Do you; wear what you want and wear it with pride.

Below I've linked to some cute bold pieces similar to the ones I have above:)

Flashback Friday: Faux Leather & Lace

Flashing back to this look; faux leather, lace, and denim. For this look I styled some vintage denims with a black lace top. I paired a faux leather jacket with some lace up boots and accessorized with silver/turquoise jewelry & my big black fedora. I can't get enough black clothes. Ever. Black pairs great with denim any day of the week, so naturally, within variation, this is a 'go-to'!

Think Pink: 15 Adorable Pink Shoes

Pink is my favorite color. Next to black that is. Today I'm swooning over my latest pink additions to my closet. Pink shoes are underated. They really can go with more things than you may even realize. Super cute pink flats would pair well with any of the following outfit ideas:

Plain white tee + your fave denims

A black and white dress

A ruffle sleeve top + denim capris

Power to pink! Pop some pink into your wardrobe and let the femininity resonate. :)

Here are 15 Adorable Pink Flats I've spied that are too cute!
(If not pictured pink, they're available in pink:)



Little bit of a flash back for this look. These pics are from back in Spring, but I'm recycling the look today in honor of Flashback Friday because why not. Everyday is a great day for Plaiditude in my opinion! :)

Spot On

I'll never have enough of polka dots. Okay wait. Polka dots WITH polka dots, probably enough polka dots. However, polka dots with denim yes. Or with a nice solid black, yes! Complimented by possibly a red somewhere, lips or shoes. Yes! I love this print. It's one of those prints that is easily dressed up or down. Style it with a casual pair of denim shorts, like I did above, and presto: day at the park. Style it with a nice solid color tailored pant, a heel, and some jewelry and presto: after work cocktails. Versatile, yet cute. What's better than that combo?! :)

Must Have Heels

These little babes though. I've been eyeing the perf pair of little black single sole heels for a minute and a half now and finally was able to find a pair I adore (via JUSTFAB). The heel isn't too high, which means I can realistically wear these bad babies. I rock them with distressed denims and dresses alike. Below I've linked to some very similar pairs, all under $40:

Pre-Fall Faves

Fall is right around the corner, which means that for just about a month or two we, still have time to strut around in just the one layer. May as well soak it up. I love this top via Forever 21. It allows me to be 2 equal parts; 1 part Fashioninsta / 1 part Pirate. Arr!

Here are a few more of my Pre-Fall Faves via Forever 21:
