Las Vegas, Nevad...
This time I decided to use self-drafted patterns and I love the outcome. Boat neckline of the sweater looks clean and classy and layered chiffon skirt is romantic and airy. Another new element that I used is the animal print of the sweater.
Here is the note for myself: I almost never use any animal prints! Never! In this case it seemed to be natural combining beige and brown zebra design shoes together with leopard print sweater. Pearl necklace adds elegance and white skirt neutralizes animal prints, so they are not as screaming. Wear this outfit in the city, to a night out or pretty much anywhere else. I am sure you can also try to style it in a sporty way, adding cool sport shoes like Converse.
Materials: think knit animal print jersey, white chiffon, white cotton, elasticated band
Additions: Pearl necklace, Staccato shoes, Mango clutch
