For years and years, we’ve been told to always be cautious about the prints, patterns or textures we wear. Combining any of these three things was always a major ‘no, no’ and wearing them would draw way too much attention to ourselves. Well ladies, we’re here to tell you to throw that idea out the window because mixing prints, patterns or textures into your wardrobe is a huge ‘yeeesss’ in our books and here are three looks to prove that. Outfit #1: ‘Check’ her out
This checkered cardigan by Michael Kors is everything you want in a print. The colours are sophisticated and polished and this look can be worn from the office to a night out on the town. Wearing a print or pattern doesn’t mean you need to go overboard and this look is a great example of this. Make it the focal point of your outfit and pair it with items that will allow your print to pop!

Outfit #2: Patterned Princess
We all know what spring weather is like in Edmonton--It has its good days and bad days. This patterned cardigan by BB Dakota will keep you warm when you need it the most this spring, while adding comfort and style to your outfit. The pattern's neutral colours make it easy to pair it with jeans and a tee and to add some sparkle and volume, we added a chunky necklace by Thirty One Bits. This look is completed with our current shoe obsession by MIA shoes and just like that, you’re ready to battle this Alberta springtime weather.

Shirt: BB Dakota – Larsen High Low Hem Knit Tee – $92.00 | Necklace: Thirty One Bits – Canopy BLK – $48.00
Outfit #3: Release Your Inner Animal
Never be scared to rock animal prints. Sure it might look endangering on the rack but when paired with pieces that compliment your print, you’ll have roars from the whole kingdom. With this look, we combined Red Haute’s fierce sweater with another great texture, Backdrop’s fur vest. The vest adds great length to the body and because it’s black, it doesn’t overshadow the print. Small accessories will look great with this outfit and keep the focus on your inner animal.
Shirt: Red Haute – $121.00 | Vest: Backdrop – Fur Vest – $118.00 | Shoes: MIA Shoes – Knox Black – $94.00 | Jeans: Joe’s – Lexi Honey Curvy Skinny – $294.00
