Stone in Michael Kors at the Oscar Nominee Luncheon on February 2nd.

When it comes to wearing cool and different clothes, including fun and unexpected combinations, Emma Stone and her stylist Petra Flannery are pros. Whether she’s appearing on an awards show red carpet or promoting her latest movie, she’s definitely become one to watch. Last week she attended the annual Oscar Nominee Luncheon in a very chic mixed-pattern outfit straight from the recent Michael Kors pre-fall 2015 collection (see side-by-side comparison below). And once again, she definitely pulled the look off. 

Wearing a striped black and white sequin jersey (which is so cool and you could wear a lot) with an embroidered polka dot tea-length skirt, Stone (and Michael Kors) show us how well mixing patterns can work, when done properly. And it can be tricky. But there’s something about stripes and polka dots that just work inherently well together. The two simple patterns were pretty much made for each other – they make for a surprisingly crisp combo and a great juxtaposition. To wear the two patterns together, it’s usually safest to go for a similar monochrome colour scheme, otherwise the look can get too complicated. But if you’re brave and want to shake it up a bit, you can always try to add colours into the mix as well. After all, it’s just fashion. And fashion should be fun.

Stone wisely paired the look with simple black stilettos instead of the casual slip-on sandals as presented in the pre-fall collection.
