Who's That Girl: Dress Like Jess! (Step 2)

Hello Readers!

Step Two: Clever Coordination of Prints and Solids.
The second step of my "Dress Like Jess" tutorial involves intelligent pairing of cute patterns with crisp solid colors. In Jess' wardrobe, this often involves wearing a solid color that picks up on a color mentioned in a patterned piece of an outfit. 


This coordination also sometimes involves a pairing of solid colors that "go" with the color palette of a pattern- not necessarily included in a pattern- but a color or colors that would get along with such color palettes.

Both of these techniques require a special kind of confidence- the quirky confidence that we've grown to love in Jess' character on the show. So... when trying your hand at patterns and solids, let your own quirky confidence shine for all the world to see!

  1. Cute tutorial! I love the striped shirt with the red skirt. BTW, my husband thinks she's cute, but I try not to hold that against her. ha, ha.

  2. Thank you! I tried to find out where they were from- but no luck! I agree though- a lovely combo indeed!
