If you look into my closet, you will notice a lot of basics and lots of stripes. What my closet does lack is prints, whether it be graphic or floral I tend to be drawn to solid colors. That is until as of late, I have been obsessed with mixing prints. For me, especially a girl who is living in the Midwest, this could be a “risky” choice. There are a few tricks of the trade I have learned over the years that make mixing prints easy as can be (even when it comes to interiors). When deciding to mix prints, I suggest mixing a large print and a small print with similar colors throughout. If you are not quite as confident, try a neutral pallet to start. Also, in most cases, I would wear a solid purse and heels and keep the jewelry simple to bring the outfit together.
I recently scored this cheetah designer clutch at T.J. Maxx and instantly fell in love. Since it is still neutral in color, I can mix it with just about anything. It gave my LBD a bit of sass, and this outfit a little dimension. Where I normally would keep my bag neutral when mixing prints, this just seemed to work perfectly.
Camo is another huge trend for Fall. I have always been a fan probably my Texas roots (Thanks Mom!) Making sure the fit is just right; is everything (as Rachel Zoe always says). I love to pair a silk top with the casual pants to dress it them a bit and make sure they do not look “country”. I could not believe I found this designer top at T.J. Maxx, it was a major score for one of my favorite brands at just a fraction of the price that I normally would pay. Let’s just say I have been wearing it on repeat all of last week.
Expressing yourself through fashion, and knowing how to put together a great look—at great value, is what being a Maxxinista is all about. At T.J.Maxx you can score the unexpected to make your own personal style statement. Here’s to rockin’ your real deal.
