Mixing Prints: Polka Dots and Stripes

It was love at first sight when I first laid eyes on the yellow polka dot skirt from Ann Taylor!

I knew I wanted to create a classic look but I didn’t want to pair the skirt with a traditional white shirt/blouse.  That’s when I was inspired to mix prints by pairing polka dots and stripes.

Due to my new love of Menswear-Inspired Fashion, I decided to match the polka dot skirt with a contrast-collar button-down shirt from H&M.

I love how the contrasting colors complement each other.  In addition, I love the look of the textured collar and cuffs.  Pairing the shirt with accessories helps to create a balance between the masculine/feminine feel of the outfit.
