Pattern Mixing

Ok so I realize this isn’t holiday related but it might be helpful! I was asked to do do a piece about pattern mixing, I put on an outfit today and it reminded me that I should go ahead and do it.

I find myself having more patterns in my closet than solids fairly often and I don’t generally know what to do about it. Frequently I decide I want to wear a certain pair of leggings and a certain style top but the tops I have are not in a solid color that would work. If you have a basic colored pattern it can easily be matched with another fun colored print.

Also, pick out similar colors within the patterns and pair them together. Or, throw in a solid to match the two together. My favorite is to match a stripe or polka dot with a crazier print. I would said that stripes and polka dots are the basics of prints. They easily match well with any other print.

I’m going to keep this short and sweet and end with a few examples that follow the guidelines I stated above.

Just remember, if you do not feel comfortable and confident don’t wear it! Add fun jewelry and makeup to spice it up a bit! If you have any questions please reach out!

Until next time, xoxo and Happy Holidays!
