I think we all sleep on Mindy Kaling's fashion. Her comedy, her writing, her mom-ing...all so good that maybe her style choices don't come top of mind. But this look she displayed on her Instagram yesterday cannot be ignored!
OK, we know she's not really just going to Costco -- this is a look that deserves to be seen. Kaling has paired a teal houndstooth-ish suit with a leopard print blouse and matching headband, and while reading that in your head makes it sound totally undesirable, it's a wonderful pairing. Mindy did 👏 that 👏.
Mixing patterns isn't everyone's strong suit; in fact, I'd say you'd have to be quite the student of fashion to be able to pull it off comfortably. But even if you don't find yourself on Mindy's level anytime soon, if she's teaching us anything, it's to not be afraid of patterns! Sure, monochromatic looks are pretty "in" right now, but spring is coming, florals are on the horizon, there's a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel -- let's get loud with our prints this year, shall we?
