Mixing Patterns: Gingham + Leopard

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I was voted Class Prep in high school because I was obsessed with Abercrombie’s soft khakis in allll the colors (it was the late 90s) and once went the entire school year without ever wearing jeans.  Not once.  But now I literally can’t imagine wearing khakis (seriously, how did I do that for a full year??) and my wardrobe relies heavily on denim of all kinds.  So when we were discussing featuring some preppier style, I immediately turned to my favorite resource for all things preppy: J. Crew. I loved this gingham button up and took a cue from their pattern mixing and added leopard print heels for fun.  Gingham is everywhere right now and I rounded up some of my favorites for you below.


J. Crew Boy Shirt in Crinkle Gingham (in classic navy, size 0 . . . available in multiple colors and regular, petite and tall sizing)

J. Crew Toothpick Skinny Jeans (available in a ton of colors and regular, petite and tall sizes – I’m wearing a 29 Petite) similar from J. Crew Factory

Heels: Similar leopard print here, but with a much more walking-friendly heel and ankle strap!  I love the print.

  1. Hey Scotti! Any jean shorts recommendations? I think we have a very similar body shape, and I can’t ever find jean shorts that work!
