MCLV Style: Windowpane Print

In the world of fashion there are things that go together so beautifully and seamlessly that they’ve become sartorial cult classics in their own right. Denim-on-denim a la the Canadian tuxedo. Stripes of any kind, worn in any way. Color combinations that are endlessly flattering like black & white or black & blue.

A few favorite on the fashion block? Windowpane prints! From windowpane print tops and suit separates to accessories like scarves and heels – There’s an endless number of ways to make this killer print work for you this Fall!

I fell head over heels in love with Allergic To Vanilla‘s killer shearling vest from Urban Outfitters so I swung by the store recently to see if I could discover any Must Have treasures, only to swoop up this fabulous windowpane print top!

This street style shoot came together really organically last week. A project that I had scheduled was canceled at the last-minute so when Miss KatwalkSF texted asking if I was around, we decided to meet at Washington Square Park for an impromptu street style photo shoot.

There are definitely benefits to living a few blocks from blogger friends!

And the best part? This fabulous blogger pup stood guard over our bags while we played in traffic trying to capture the perfect photographs. And believe you me, he takes his guard dog duties very seriously. He’s positively fierce!

Bonus? I got to practice my photography skills – Check out the look that I shot for her here!

The black, white & cobalt blue scarf that I’m wearing above is one of my new favorite pieces. This isn’t just any scarf – It’s thick, fully lined, and incredibly soft and warm. I didn’t take it off for the rest of the day. Or the next…

With the bright, eye-catching colors and great size its perfect for everything from throwing over a maxi for Spring to carrying in your beach bag all Summer.

What do YOU think of these hippie styles?
