This season, we're wild for fresh prints and patterns! From tribal to florals to trendy geometric designs, we're embracing every option we find. We did a double take when we spotted Anna Kendrick in this adorable Fair Isle pattern (usually reserved for cozy sweaters) on the red carpet at a recent event for Target.
The petite actress kicked up this wintery look's sex appeal with a colorful miniskirt and wisely selected subdued accompanying pieces like a solid cobalt blue tank, emerald envelope clutch and a classic blazer and ankle booties by Rebecca Minkoff.
Check out our budget-friendly tips for recreating her charming look:
1. Add some polish: A sharp classic blazer is a must-have that instantly pulls any look together. ($59.99 at ModCloth.)
2. Skirt the issue: Flaunt your figure in a curve-hugging knit mini skirt. (reduced to $11.69 at Forever21.)
3. Experiment with color: A sophisticated clutch in an unexpected shade of moss green feels fresh and modern. ($31.49 at eBags.)
4. Kick it up: Platform faux suede ankle booties add edge (and height!) without trying too hard. ($79.00 at Blowfish.)
