Fashion Friday: Bold Patterns

How to Wear Bold Patterns

I very often shy away from patterns. I love bright colors, but usually in solids. When I saw this Elizabeth and James outfit on Saks’ website and it was on sale, I had to have it.

I’m very into Elizabeth and James right now. Their clothes are hip and trendy without feeling too edgy. They also happen to fit me really well.

I had to get used to wearing this outfit with the high neck, tight fitting pencil skirt, and bare midriff, but once I did, I totally fell in love with it. I got complements on it all day long. I think that was because it’s so different from what I typically wear.

With the bold pattern, I chose to keep my accessories simple. I chose my favorite YSL sandals and handbag. Bright pink lipstick added just the pop of color my outfit needed.

This skirt and top are perfect for summer, but I also think the skirt will be nice in chillier months paired with a black sweater. I love separates that will work with other things already in my closet.

I already can’t wait to wear this again and maybe add some more patterns to my wardrobe.

    OMG! This is one of my favorite outfits on you. So trendy with the midriff showing and you look terrific….This would look terrific at the Taylor Swift Concert if your new one doesn’t work out. You would be a hit with this! Love, love it!

      Thanks, Debbie! I would wear it, but the skirt is so tight that I don’t think I’d be very able to walk up all those stairs!
