SHOP THE LOOK:
I wore this chambray shirt dress to work last Friday since Fridays are usually more laid back. Some of the older men were really shocked by the animal print and plaid combination; the print mixing was a bit much for them. It always cracks me up which outfits get reactions (specifically from the men) at work. Most of the folks I work with are pretty conservative, not too into fashion, and my outfits can either be a hit or a miss with them. More often than not, I’m getting made fun of for trying something new. I’ll probably never live down the days I wore bright orange pants.
Nonetheless, for those of us who DO like fashion, print mixing is a great way to liven up your look. It adds interest and, when done in subtle ways, like accessories, can still look conservative and tasteful. Give it a go, huh? :)
