A mix of crazy patterns spice up any outfit

Actress Mena Suvari, the new face of Captain Morgan spiced rum, attended a press conference wearing a crazy printed dress that definitely spiced up her look.

The dress, which she took from Matthew Williamson's Spring 2008 collection, featured a wide range of tribal prints, from black and white chevron stripes to purple and blue designs. The sleeveless dress had a fringed v-neck and shoulder details with a sash tied around the waist, creating an hourglass shape. A ruffled layered skirt added some serious volume on the bottom and highlighted her slim legs.

Mena paired the dress with a wild pair of gold platform peep-toes, dangling earrings and a large cocktail ring. She wore her blonde hair down with blunt bangs that looked edgy. A little eyeliner and mascara defined her eyes while a pink lip gloss amplified her pout.

Next time you're looking for statement cocktail dresses, you don't need to go totally tribal with tons of different prints, but you can take a cue from Mena and mix a couple of complementary patterns for a fun look. Keep your makeup and accessories minimal to avoid a busy ensemble.
