Catch a tiger by the toe….

…..Eeny Meeny Miny Moe, my mother said to pick the very best one….

And which is it??

I got this kooky skater skirt from Gwynnie Bee in a running tiger print (can you even??) and wanted to show three ways to style one item. Obviously, solid colored items are easy to match with different items – but a printed item can be oh so fun as you have more colors to work with!

#1) This would be the casual day look. I let the tigers show just a peep from under a solid black open-knit cardigan with a white tee – keeping the other items very basic and subdued let the tigers really stand out.

Jete Tiger Printed Skater Skirt from Gwynnie Bee (old). Comparable (if anything could ever compare to this!) here and here in plus size and here and here in straight size /  White Tank from Rainbow Shops (old). Comparable here and here in plus size and here and here in straight size /  Black Crocheted Duster from Avenue (old). Comparable here and here in plus size and here and here in straight size / Black Christian Siriano Gigi Point Flat from Payless (old). Comparable here and here

#2) I’d call this office casual. Playing with some pattern mixing with the black and white polka dot top and tiger print. The black and white polka dot print ties in nicely with the black and white tigers.

Comparable here and here in plus size and here and here in straight size / CL by Laundry Valerie Black Faux Suede Wedge Bootie from DSW (old). Comparable here and here.

#3) And I’d choose this for a fun evening out with the girls, a little more urban and whimsical. Here I just paired the busy print with solid black top and leggings…and added one contrasting pop of color with the red sneakers.

So, eeny meeny miny moe, which is your favorite??

My friend Amy Frushour Kelly did these beautiful photographs for me. She’s got a home studio in Nassau county and does beautiful headshots and portraits. Give her a shout if you need some nice pictures!

  1. I love all 3, but my fav is the second with the polka dot blouse. Love mixing patterns!
    (Stacey London from *What not to Wear* says dots are like a solid neutral…so it goes with lots of things.)

    1. Donna:

      Stacey London was my style guru for SO many years! I always hoped someone would nominate me for the show, but sadly, this never happened. But yeah, I’m trying to add more “mixable patterns” to my wardrobe, which is mostly solids right now. A fun challenge, to be sure! Thanks for reading!

  2. You are very beautiful in all three looks but the casual day look is my favorite. If I was your supervisor I would use you as an example of how employees should dress.
