"Layering" is a great fall fashion tip that is both practical and helpful when trying to put outfits together. In a season when it's not always cold enough to wear a coat (at least in Oklahoma!), yet too chilly in well air-conditioned buildings to wear a light blouse, layering with sweaters and light jackets can be an instant fix. To take layering a step further, look at how you can mix different prints. Mixing stripes with polka dots is a great place to start. The tiny understated polka dots on the chambray shirt mix well with the bold, clean stripes of the sweater. Adding a third print with the leopard heels was a fun twist and pulled the whole look together. I kept my accessories pretty minimal and understated, especially in terms of color, so they wouldn't compete with the different prints.

Which prints do YOU think work really well together? Let me know in a comment below! Thanks for reading!
