After a week of sunshine and warm breezes, the dreary, gray cold air of Prague winter rolled right back in. On the way to the coffee shop for a quick espresso, this Fashionista decided to mix pieces from her winter and spring wardrobes, creating the perfect in-between-seasons outfit. To put together this outfit, she mixed patterns with a fur-trimmed jacket and graphic T-shirt over a solid colored maxi shirt. She then mixed metals with a bronze studded cross-body bag and silver spiked boots. Nothing says spring more than maxi skirts and the mixing of patterns.
This Fashionista wore her favorite “lazy day” T-shirt from Urban Outfitters over a simple black maxi skirt. She added a little pattern diffusion to her outfit with an Urban Outfitters winter sale jacket. The black spiked Dr. Martens boots, that she bought on a whim one day here in Prague, add some texture. With midterms just around the corner, style and, most importantly, comfort are the main fashion concerns of this Fashionista as well as all the other Fashionistas on campus.
While the temperatures go up, the mixture of patterns in street styles will become more abundant. Putting together a cardigan with a similar baroque pattern over a maxi skirt or even a skater skirt would make a fabulous spring style statement. Even if you aren’t into the baroque print trend, you can still mix and match different patterns for a great outfit. So, think: polka-dots and stripes, stripes and floral, polka-dots and floral, stripes and floral, graphic prints and stripes, graphic prints and floral.
Go ahead! Be daring and mix those patterns you never in a million years thought you could put together. The cameras of Fashionistas and Fashionistos around different campuses will love you for it as well as the eyes of fellow trendsetters.
