Trippy prints, funky cuts, handmade jewelry combines for eclectic chic


I love something about a flowy piece with a funky print - add some equally funky shoes and too many bracelets and I'm a happy gal. There are few lines in the world that do this big funky flowy thing with a retro twist like Show Me Your Mumu. We spotted a superb example of this at Hemline with a warm pink and orange tie dyed dress. In person the dress has an almost sheer quality that takes the piece to a sexy place even with that roomy cut. Awesome worn over swimwear to lunch before heading back to the beach, or wear it around town with a little slip or none at all if you're feeling brave.

At Knotting Hill a warm-hued top is absolutely cool with a print that has a feather-like quality (this IND Styler loves a feather) and cut out shoulders. Wear with high-waisted shorts, a maxi skirt or pair with a skimpy slip dress for some more coverage. Pairing these funky prints with a neutral shoe is a must. I'm in love with the distressed leather and wooden heel on these Shoe La La wedges. Perfect for making flirty little dresses funky or sweet floral prints a little tougher.

To bring on the funk without a lot of print (I know some you cling to the solids), try an armful of bracelets like these from Shoe La La. With an earthy artisan feel, beautiful colors and eclectic vibe, this is the kind of jewelry that takes even plain white t's to funky places.
