What NYC Recessionista Wears: stripes and dots

One of my favorite formulas for putting a quick and chic outfit together is to combine two different patterns– stripes and a floral, polka dots and a floral, or in this case stripes and polka dots.

Gold-tone studs by NansGlam on Etsy (similar) / Bauble Bar necklace (similar) / Forever 21 striped tee (similar) / rose gold watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova (similar) / LOFT “polka dot” eyelet skirt (similar) / metallic Birkenstocks

And … if you take a closer look, you’ll see that the polka dots aren’t technically polka dots at all. This eyelet skirt with its contrasting lining gives the illusion of a polka dot print. So cool.
