Date Night Outfit of the Day

Earrings: Bauble Bar
Sandals: Dolce Vita

I very rarely recommend pattern mixing.  I know you see it everywhere these days, but so few people, in my opinion, can really pull it off.  Somehow it never looks quite right, and usually that's because the number one rule of pattern mixing is to match your colors.  If you really like the look of mixed patterns, choosing a palette of black and white is one way to not go astray.  Another is to let the clothes do the work for you.  Instead of finding two separates to match yourself, find a dress like this one that has the patterns built in.  That way all you have to do is figure out what you are going to wear with it.  I would wear this one on a night out because the dress is a little short for office wear.  Teamed with strappy sandals and the trend of bright, white nails, it's the perfect outfit for meeting a friend for a drink on the weekend.
