Mix it Up...

Pattern mixing is not as difficult as some make it out to be.  When executed properly, pattern mixing can lead you to a unique look that is all your own.  When I personally do this, I like to stick to a few general rules: 

1. Always feel confident in your wardrobe choices. This is my number one rule when it comes to any/all areas of style. Confidence is very noticeable to others, and it should be an obvious trait associated with the way you carry and dress yourself. Confidence should be the finishing touch added to all of your outfit choices (especially ones that others may question).
2. Keep the shape/silhouette classic. This will balance out the contrasting patterns. 
3. When it comes to leopard print, the answer is always yes.  We have all heard by now that leopard print is a neutral. So ladies, rock it hard!

Happy Monday!
