Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you have to store away your lightweight frocks. Over the weekend I transitioned one of my favorite floral dresses to a more seasonally appropriate outfit with a burgundy cardigan, tights, and leopard flats. If you know me, you know that leopard flats are my wardrobe staple. I wear them almost all the time and for a good reason – they perfectly complement any outfit without stealing the spotlight. Most of all, I love mixing leopard with floral, stripes, plaid, and more leopard. One pattern mixing hack to remember is to pair prints that are opposite in size, so if you’re wearing a bold floral or striped dress, be sure to juxtapose it with a smaller print or accent piece. This is why leopard flats are so versatile.
