Everybody, Everywear: Mixed Prints

| |




Sweater: Zara
Shirt: Sparrow (Urban Outfitters)
Jeans: Rich & Skinny (Nordstrom)
Shoes: Nine West
Watch: Michael Kors (Nordstrom)
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (a gift)

I saw this sweater at Zara on my second trip to the sale (I’ve since gone again); it was a no-brainer. Not only is it striped but I can also file it under “Celtics pride” – perfect. (If you’re new to Style by Santina, my love for the Celtics sometimes intersects with my closet in looks like this and this.) The stripes were begging for another print, and this black and white gingham was an easy choice. My boyfriend jeans fit the boyish vibe while a pair of pointy toe heels and shiny bag kept it feminine.

Just a few days after I snapped these pics, I saw that this month’s Everybody, Everywear challenge is mixed prints. Perfect timing! After hesitantly giving mixed prints a try, I now love layering clashing prints and look forward to lots of printed layers this fall…or, you know, now in San Francisco.

Love the stripes and gingham - they are perfect together!

And I understand the celtics thing. During hockey season, I incorporate A LOT of blue and yellow into my outfits to show my Sabres pride.

Thanks, Holly! And, I'm so happy to hear you have a Sabres section in your closet - there's no reason a girl can't still look chic while supporting her favorite team!

Santina said...

Thanks, Courtney! I actually bought another striped sweater that same day...it's an addiction, I tell ya.

Santina said...

Thanks, Veronika!

Santina said...

Well, that makes two of us. I can't stop buying stripes!

Santina said...

Thanks, Chelsea. I'm actually feeling like I need a trim and a color touch-up so I appreciate that!

Such a cute go-to look Santina!  I love the gingham/stripe mix + aren't bf jeans the best?  I have those in a dark wash and love them...even better than sweats :) 

Kate said...

Eep, this is so cute! The layering of the plaid & stripes is awesome, I love it! 

Frances Joy said...

I love everything about this look!  The stripes and gingham work perfectly together and I love your take on a classic silhouette

Sweetlaundry said...

For some reason, I always think pattern mixing has to involve florals, but I really like what you've done here. So simple and clean and coordinated. You are one smart cookie :)

Vanessa said...

I love the two prints together. They work really well together. I can't believe Ohio is having a crazy hot summer, and you guys are practically in fall mode.

Mixed prints rock my world! And I love those stilettos paired with yours!

MONKEYFACE said...

I love this whole outfit, Santina!!  Double exclamation points for emphasis.  Your layering came together so well, and I reeeeeeeally want a pair of jeans like yours to wear with heels.  CLASSY.  :)

I love the shirt and sweater combo! What a great way to mix patterns. I'm also diging the boyfriend jeans with sexy pumps look. Nice way to balance the outfit. Kudos!

Allright- we both know I love this! Gingham and plaid seems obvious but no, it is FRESH! and brilliant! I love the added girlish charm of the pumps with the rolled up jeans to counter balance the collegiate vibe of the sweater and shirt.

MissRockwell said...

You are gorgeous. And your 'fit is really classic and chic too!
