Plaid & Polka Dots

Hello! For my look today, I decided to mix a few different patterns together. There's nothing I love more than playing around with various prints and seeing how various prints complement each other.

I started my look with this black polka dot, body-con dress. This dress has proved time and time again to be such a great piece for layering. The versatile fit and plain colors of the dress make it extremely easy to pair with nearly every item in my wardrobe. It's great for pairing under a circle skirt or great with a cozy sweater layered on top of it. Today, I paired it under a plaid shirt-dress which I wore open, unbuttoned.

This plaid shirt-dress has also been one of my recent go-tos. The classic print and rich winter colors draw me back again and again to it. I like the way the plaid of the shirt-dress accentuates the polka dots of the dress underneath of it. This dress/shirt-dress combination was also ideal for the warm November weather today.

I played around with another print by slipping on a pair of navy and white polka dot socks underneath a pair of black booties. The print of the socks is almost like a combination of the prints of the two dresses- it's similar to the polka dot dress because they are the same print and similar to the plaid dress because they are a similar color. The print of the socks tie together the two different prints of the dresses perfectly.

Several golden necklaces completed the look.
