Mix two uniquely different prints or textures… on a budget.
As you’ve surely noticed (unless you live under a rock), pattern-mixing is making a big comeback in the trendier sections of the industry: florals on top of florals, nautrical stripes layered on plaid, etc. I decided to test it a step further by mixing two very different textures.. on a budget. This sleek, striped sweater was a total steal from Forever21 at $30 – a great staple with unexpected color accents in the sleeves. The leather boxing short was a bit pricier at $99, but well worth the price tag from H&M. Total for these two pieces was a cool $135 (with taxes) – not bad for pieces that you can use in various way in your wardrobe.
