A rugged chambray shirt helps balance out the femininity of a floral print and adds some visual interest (and warmth when it’s still cool out). The small, wallpaper-like print works really well too for mixing with other patterns and textures – like the woven design in the pants – especially when they share a common color.

For a quick and easy work look, I juxtaposed a fancy, feminine leopard top with boyfriend jeans and a rugged moto-style denim jacket.

This spring, I’m employing a ‘wear what you want’ mentality and for me, that means going back to basics. I’m looking for casual staples that I can match up with more luxe accessories for an interesting (and comfortable) mix.
The key to pulling off a monochrome look is mixing in interesting textures and patterns. In this case, I also wanted to tone down the formality of these pants for a fresh daytime look so I paired them with a rugged leather belt and layers of casual knits.
I love the juxtaposition of feminine florals against rugged leather pants. Extra pops of color in the accessories – pulled from colors in the shirt – tie the whole look together and add a (necessary!) spring-time touch.
