Strots- A Mixture of stripes and dots

Dress: Promode
Cardigan: Mango
Bag: Friis & Company
Wedges: Deichmann
Sheba Necklace: HRH Collection

Experimenting with contrasting prints is something I've always been attracted to but it's quite a challenge to find prints that can complement each other well.
Usually I don't mix a lot of prints together because it can look kinda twitchy . However, when I paired these two classic pieces together it showed me how fun it can be. I think the secret in achieving a successful pairing of prints is to have one print smaller in scale than the other. So I decided to use thick stripes with smaller polka dots in  my outfit.
I love that it gives my ensemble a unconventional yet chic look.
Not only will I love dots forever but stripes as well. What do you think of this mixture?


  1. Ani, you look so adorable in this outfit! I agree, I find it challenging to mix prints. I usually stick to just one pattern, but stripes and polka dots is one pairing that I think always looks great together. I'm definitely going to have to try this. Those shoes are really fabulous too!
