Style Ingredient: Mixing sequin prints at Suno a/w 2012

I will leave the reviews of the collections currently being presented during fashion week to the experts, but I do want to introduce a new feature to the blog: Style Ingredients. These are the styling tips from lookbooks or collections, or inspiration that catches my eye. The first Style Ingredient comes from one of my favourite shows for Fall 2012 so far: Suno. The collection was all about mixing prints, and this one look really stood out for me. Usually, when you wear sequins, you let the clothing item stand on its own and do all the talking. But in this look, print mixing was brought to sequin clothes. One statement piece isn't enough: you throw another one, in a different print and/or colour on top for a very chic look!

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!
I love checking out your blogs as well, so if you leave a comment I will come visit your blog sometime soon :)
However, I firmly believe that you should follow a blog because you feel inspired, not as part of a follow-for-follow deal. I will NEVER respond to "want to follow each other" requests.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
