Head to Toe

I've been having fun taking a few spring 2012 trends out for a test drive and one that I really love is the head to to print look. Flipping through the February issue of InStyle, I saw this amazing page featuring all over prints from suits to jumpers, separates - YUM.

This weekend when I was thinking about layers to battle the 20 degree temps (and still not quite ready to submit to a floor length bubble coat) I thought...ok, a nice cozy sweater. Then I thought, how can I make this interesting? So I mixed prints as I often do and loved this look. Sort of a tip toe into a full head to to print look. I'm actually really excited to do a head to toe print when I find the right one.

I'm sure some would say that a (curvy, plus size, fat - whatever you identify as) woman wearing head to toe prints is a no-no however, I don't subscribe to conventional rules of what I should and shouldn't wear. Whether you want to try this trend on for size or not, I think it's really important to step outside of your comfort zone and for all of those "I'd never wear this or that" moments, just try it. Be audacious in your fashion choices!

Here's what I'm wearing:
Studded Jacket - Lane Bryant
Printed Cardigan - Ruche 
Printed Jeans - Random store on 125th
Snood - ASOS
Bright Yellow Bag - Rebecca Minkoff
Shades - Marc by Marc Jacobs
