Another example of "All the Prints"

First, the "collar" on this dress is actually a sleeveless blouse layered underneath, which I featured in my "Discover Mango" post last summer. I love working in a collar, it can take a casual piece and make it more office-appropriate, while adding a bit of tomboy flair, as seen in yesterday's post.
Besides the collar, the silhouette of this dress and mix of prints captures the current vaguely 70's Gucci aesthetic, as seen in this look from the Pre-Fall Collection:
A mad mix of prints and embellishments is very on-trend at the moment. The key to pulling off this look IRL, is to not overwhelm yourself with add-ons and overly quirky/cutesy elements. My outfit above is treading very close to the line of becoming costumey. If I had employed a belt, statement necklace, bow, or beret as in the pic above, it would been have WAY to much. I let the dress and the cardi be the stars of the outfit and supported the color story they have set with a collar, tights, and loafers.
