How to style argyle

Cardigan: J.Crew via Goodwill (love this preppier version and this grandpa version) | Cords: Gap (similar bootcut version) | Flats: BDG via Garage sale (similar) | Bag: Vintage Coach via Garage sale | Earrings: Topshop

I went through an argyle phase my freshman year of college and, essentially, argyled myself out. I was never quite sure how to style such a classic, preppy print. I think the key to styling argyle in a modern way is to pick up a print in unexpected colors, like this yellowish green, and pair it with a contrasting color (like these eggplant cords) and a contrasting print (like these snakeskin flats).
