Revenge star Ashley Madekwe, 30, made a fashion-forward statement at the UGG Australia South Coast Plaza store opening party in Costa Mesa, CA on Tuesday. Wearing a floral pantsuit from Topshop, the actress stood out in the crowd.

While head-to-toe prints don’t work on everyone, Madekwe’s fashion risk paid off.

What’s the trick to making this trendy look work?

The darker floral print kept Madekwe’s look seasonal and the suit’s black backdrop grounded the busy print.

When wearing one print top to bottom, the key is to break it up by wearing a solid color underneath. The actress’ white graphic tee added an edgy touch without competing with the busy pattern.

Another reason why we love this look: Madekwe’s rocker-inspired ankle boots, which showed just enough leg to help elongate her petite frame and matched the vibe of her tee. A  box-frame bag was right on-trend for fall and added polish to the girlie-rocker mashup.

Lesson of today’s winning look: Don’t shy away from intricate patterns or allover prints. Just follow Madekwe’s savvy styling tricks.
