How to Mix Florals and Stripes
Spring is the perfect time to play with patterns. If you follow trends, you'll have already seen several print-mixing guides for spring. My favorite combo is florals and stripes when it comes to pattern mixing. Image via Amazon
The easiest way to pull it off is to keep it neutral and cohesive. This look, for example, incorporated black and white in both pieces. But that doesn't mean all of your accessories need to be black and white as well. Add in something light for spring, like a gorgeous blush pink satchel.
If you want to follow this formula closely - a flared floral print skirt with a striped blouse - you can't go wrong with a Ted Baker Skirt (or this one if you're on a budget). You can keep the look completely monochromatic with this black and white floral skirt.
You could also go with a softer color palette. The light blues in this Ted Baker pencil skirt ( budget option here ) are perfect with a very subtle pinstripe top. Finish off the look with some nude dress sandals and a crisp white satchel.
