MCLV Style: Black, White & Red All-Over

Sometimes what you need is some serious color to make a look come together. I love stripes and these two-toned round toed pumps are one of my favorite pairs, but what made this outfit pop was definitely the cropped red pants.

I’m very picky when it comes to my pants – VERY PICKY – And I returned two other pairs of cropped red pants before I settled on this great pair from Calvin Klein. I like a relaxed waistline so that sitting isn’t uncomfortable, and fabric with some stretch so that they fit my frame a little better. As opposed to the dreaded pleated pants!

What’s your favorite thing to pair with a striped piece? Do you like to mix prints with other prints, or are you a fan of adding a splash of color to a print-heavy look?
