One of the questions I get asked most often is “How do I mix patterns?” This blog post is dedicated to answering just that! Follow these 3 simple steps and you’ll be well on your way to mixing and matching patterns and prints.
Step 1: Find two patterns in the same color scheme. So here I have Emily in a yellow, navy and white plaid shirt with a navy, yellow and gray cardigan.
Step 2: The patterns should be of different families. So, plaid with plaid wouldn’t work, nor cheetah with cheetah, but plaid with cheetah….perfect!
Step 3: The patters should be of different sizes. Small plaid, big cheetah print.
And finally, the rest of your outfit should be pretty simple like these white pants and bag.
One more fashion hint for you… attach a fun accessory like this yellow flower from H&M onto your bag and shake things up a bit!
