Print power

Last week, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers contributed to the Republican House leadership weekly press conference, as she often does. She wore a black and cream print jacket:

As we discussed before. prints can be challenging to wear simply because the print must be just right or it can go all wrong. Here's why this one works:
  • The smooth edges of the print compliment the sleek, smooth lines of her bob hairstyle.
  • The robust cream color (instead of more common stark white) warms up the color palette and takes the edge off the color contrast.
  • The print is varied, abstract, and in proportion to her features, which keeps it from drawing too much attention.

  1. As pretty as Rep. Rodgers' earrings are, don't you find their motion when she moves her head to be very distracting?
