Before I switched up my style aesthetic, most of the prints and patterns in my wardrobe were pretty vibrant and often a little retro, which means that most of them have been handed down, sold, or donated over the past few months. But I realized I was missing the movement and interest added by prints, so I picked up this top which is both neutral and cut with a curved hem, one of my favorite design elements. It’s reminiscent of animal print, but nothing I’ve ever seen on an actual critter. So it’s interesting, flattering … and somewhat mysterious.
Ahhh, two of my favorites in one outfit: Mixed neutrals and mixed metals. Throw in a little asymmetry, and I’m happy as can be. This tunic is sold out in black on the Karen Kane site, but there are still a few left at Zappos and the plus size version at 6pm. It’s a mid-weight knit that’s ideal for transitional weather, which is what we’re still having these days. Not complaining, though: 50 degrees is my temperature sweet spot.
Pretty sure I bought both this sweater and these pants long before Christmas, so I’m slightly stunned to see they’re both still available. Both are comfy, casual favorites in my closet. Though I’ll admit that something about the pants makes them a little less easy to style and wear than these. Could be that moto-inspired knee patches are certainly interesting, but a little incongruous on a pair of fancy sweatpants. Just a theory.
