Flora and Fauna: An animal print sweater prowls the urban jungle with a floral blouse.

Hello Friends. Our Fall has been a strange one, but a very nice late summer. I'm trying my best to use any excuse to throw on a sweater, especially this animal print chunky knit cardigan- a score from Goodwill. It's a Ralph Lauren label, a thick hand-knit sweater and very comfy.

Pattern mixing made easy: Keep your color palette simple and repetitive. (Photos: Bella Q)

One way to make prints mix is to give the patterns a sense of rhythm. In this case the floral and the leopard print are pulled together with the bottom half of the outfit: black tights which echo the black of the blouse, and the tan sandals that share a similar hue to the tan in the sweater.  It's best not to get too matchy-match but to loosely combine your prints. Have fun!
