To never mix patterns is probably one of the first fashion rules we are all taught as soon as we’re out of the crib. But look who we saw boldly breaking that fashion fundamental: Shenae Grimes, who wore a striped jacket with a cube-print handbag at the InStyle Summer Soiree earlier today.

Shenae even further upped her outfit’s risqué factor with a pair of super-short, hardly-there-at-all shorts.

If it weren’t for the black-and-white color scheme, Shenae’s outfit would’ve been a definite don’t, but it’s actually managed to pull everything together. What do you think? Is Shenae Grimes’ mixing and matching of stripes with squares a do or a don’t?

The black-and-white stripe pattern is a huge trend in jeans and in dresses; now, it has invaded jackets, too! Shenae Grimes’ own is the black version of this Marc Jacobs satin gabardine jacket:
