I got this great sheer plaid dress some time last year, and took a stab at modeling it because it just did NOT seem to translate on the hanger. It's a really lovely, four-season dress — the lightweight fabric makes it easy to wear in summer, but the dark, simple color palette and 3/4-length sleeves mean that it doesn't look out of place in cold weather, either.
I paired it with this black-and-white print jacket, which I just recently bought, to show how great it looks with a blazer or other piece as well. This jacket has a great shape to it and would be fabulous left open over a pencil skirt or trousers, but I liked how it looked to belt it over this A-line skirt.
I did not even set out to mix all these prints together — it just kind of came together naturally. Which rarely happens for me, I usually plan my outfits ahead of time. But last night I fell asleep before I could even start thinking about it!
