Just when I thought combining plaid with fishnet, stripes with floral, and zebra and leopard print was too over the top, I saw this striped sweater dress in my closet. I contemplated wearing it with the standard black hose, but then I remembered the funky polka dot hose I had never worn. Being the fashion rebellious person that I am, I decided to mix the two, and it was like a match made in print-mixing-heaven.
Another rebellious thing I did was wear my slingback pumps with hose. The fashion police usually recommend never wearing hose, socks or leggings with slingback pumps, whether they’re closed or open toed because the strap at the back of the shoe can cause the material to bunch and rip. I dare to be different and just happen to love the look of these hose with the slingbacks, so I made it work.
The coat came about simply by accident because my black coat was in the dry cleaners. Once I put it on, I loved how the green made the fuchsia and black dress pop. This is when I say more is more and fortunately it worked perfectly for me!
Hope you have a fabulous rest of the week! 🙂
