STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: From Nature to Neutral

Style Advice of the Week

There is a constant inner battle with patterns in every Fashionista. The fashion world goes through times where one pattern would be completely cute and in a blink of an eye it’s on the “worst dressed” page of every magazine. Animal print has been on this pattern roller coaster for a long time, but this Fashionista has got it all figured out.

If you look too quickly at this Fashionista you might just think that her outfit is a cute and simple mix of neutral colors that look great for fall. But if you take a better look, she has created a neutral look and added some amazing animal prints. Often times when you see people wear animal print it is to make that item pop. This Fashionista has done the exact opposite. She took the neutral colors of the animal print scarf and incorporated those colors into different items in her look. The black in her scarf goes great with her shirt and the drastic contrast of the camel color against her black shirt is offset by a cute crochet sand colored long vest. Her shoes keep the neutral theme and keep the scarf from taking over the outfit.

This Fashionista’s accessories really make the outfit. Besides the scarf, she rocks an animal print tote that adds to the theme but still doesn’t make the outfit look overdone. Her orange and cream bracelets add a bit of contrast and pop to the outfit while still sticking to the theme and her tortoise bracelet perfectly matches the scarf.

Animal print can be tricky, especially if you aren’t looking to make a huge statement so take a page out of this Fashionista’s book to create a look sure to please!
