From Striped Satin Lingerie to Preppy Nautical Looks

 - Oct 25, 2011
Mixing clashing patterns and prints is currently a huge and highly acclaimed look in the fashion world, and a critical part of that craze is the incorporation of striped fashions into daily wear.

Mixing striped pieces with polka dots or leopard print, for instance, can add an instant touch of edgy glamor to your wardrobe. For those of you who are like me and are not yet brave enough to experiment with mixing prints, stripes are still a must-have item in your closet. Nautical looks are defined by the pattern, and who doesn't love some nautical fashion every now and then?

Whether you're going for a preppy look or something a little more out there, stripes are always a great go-to pattern.
