Made for Each Other

I happened across this printed top at Zara last weekend, and instantly had a feeling it would work well in my wardrobe. Although I had initially tried it on and loved it with jeans, when I got it home, I just knew that it would probably look cool with these printed H&M trousers that I have had in my collection for a few seasons now. The way that the prints sort of mix yet go together kind of reminds me they way design houses like Kenzo or Dries Van Noten work their print-mixing games, and I really like that it is a little more unexpected than just pairing it with denim. I had toyed with the idea of pairing this look with bright red statement pumps, but I didn't want to distract from the prints, which really are the main attraction. Maybe if I were going out for drinks or dinner or something I would choose a dressier, metallic pump...maybe add a cocktail ring...but I think that would be about the extent of it. These pieces were just sort of made for each other, don't you think?

Create a Perfect Mix


  1. YES! They are made for each other! They go without being too matchy-matchy! I really love those skinnies! It's interesting...your earrings are quite large, but they don't dominate the outfit...the are the perfect complement!

  2. I agree...super fab pattern mixing look.
    Will be sharing this...


  3. Love this look!! You look beautiful XO

  4. Made for each other, and they were waiting for your magic touch! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.

  5. I must agree as well, they were made for each other. Pattern mixing at its finest moment.

  6. I love this print and the tie or how it drapes, so pretty with the pants! Zara is one of my fav stores!

  7. Bravo! I think this is a super combination. It looks right at home on you.

  8. Yes. YES!!!! Great pairing ... you gotz the good eye, as always. Pretty colors for the season and on you, of course. And I especially love seeing the nude wedges. I'm on quest to figure out how nude shoes are best worn ... I have so many pairs because I just love how they look, but I almost always choose a dark shoe or one that matches a color in one of the pieces ... or a third color that compliments (especially in jewel tone combos.) Please tell me; how did you choose nude in this case? In any case?

    1. Hi! I thought the look was balanced just as it was, without a strong show to anchor it. I wanted the center where all the prints meet to be the focus. That said, inwouldnwearva burnished metallic shoe with this look tondressbitnup a bit without throwing the balance too much.

  9. Print upon print dressing is always a walk on the tightwire but you've balanced it ever so perfectly. The colours are sublime. I rarely ever use prints, and I think I might have gone multi prints just once? Maybe? It's clear I have to have to have to revisit this style of dressing though, you make it look effortless and stylish :)
