I’m a little behind on my Dainty Outfit posts – fashion week madness is upon us! I wore this black and white look to a Nella Bella event a couple of weeks ago. I must admit that I was a little nervous about layering mixed graphic prints, but I’m really happy with the way it turned out!
I’m wearing TWO sleeveless blouses from Smart Set; the bottom layer is a collared button up and the top layer is a peplum – both with different graphic prints. The peplum is really cute on its own, but I think the collar and hi-low hem of the other blouse add a little something special. The print underneath peaks through ever so slightly, adding playful dimension; a lot of people thought it was one blouse! I wore my creation with skinny black dress pants and a cropped waterfall blazer – chic, office appropriate and layered for versatility!
I took the blazer off later that night and it looked cute for cocktails too! My Shop For Jayu necklace was the perfect collar candy and my Nine West boots were stylish yet functional with the rainy weather we had that day in Toronto. I went with a basic black purse that day but I wish I had worn my hot pink Kate Spade bag to go with my pink lips and nails! Ah well…guess I’ll just have to take this look for another spin! Maybe I’ll pop the collar next time…
Mixing graphic prints is uncharted territory for me, but this little ditty gives me confidence to try again…I’m thinking florals and stripes for spring!
What do you think? Would you mix prints? Leave me a comment or tweet @DaintyGirl_TO!
