Celebrity Style Steal: Eva Mendes Mixes It Up

Nothing says spring like a floral maxi dress! Eva Mendes pulls off her look with cat-eye sunglasses, brown booties and by mixing prints with her tote bag. The maxi is the ultimate comfort dress. There is no pulling at the hem or fear of bending down to pick something up. This floral Alice + Olivia dress features the current off-the-shoulder trend and a lace inset. You could go for a gladiator sandal when the summer rolls around, but for right now slip on a pair of brown leather booties by Frye. The woven material brings a layer of texture to the ensemble and the heel gives you that added height all women love. Mendes brings in color with her eyewear. These Tory Burch navy cat-eye sunglasses will do the same. With a floral print dress it is best to keep your jewelry on the simple side. A great stud earring or a single cocktail ring will do just the trick. Moon and Lola’s scripted-lettered monogramed ring is the perfect way to bring in more color and make a personalized statement with your jewelry. Many women fear pulling off mixing prints, but if you mix prints of similar colors and pair a large and small print it will work and add a unique flare to your look. Mendes opted for a floral and striped combo while I chose this leopard print canvas tote by Sole Society. Try mixing prints with a dress and bag or sunglasses and top. If you begin by wearing one wardrobe piece with one accessory it can help you test out how to mix prints.
