Mixing patterns can be fun and confusing at the same time. We came up with a couple of rules to follow when trying this trend. If you don’t like one, try the other. It’s all trial and error, and don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone.

1 // Break it up a little. Not every item needs to have a pattern. Adding a solid colored cardigan can break up your prints well.

  • Where to buy —
    Scarf & Pants | Previous Trend Addictions
    Cardigan | Gap
    Top | J.Crew (similar)
    Shoes | Anthropologie (similar)

2 // Try using the same pattern. For example, pair horizontal stripes with vertical stripes — just make sure they compliment each other.

3 // Mix large scale prints with small scale prints. This will help balance the outfit out.

4 // Add an accessory. This works well because it can sometimes add your print in. For example, a floral scarf or leopard flats.

5 // Choose a theme. For example, you want to have a nautical theme or vintage vibe.

[TIPS]

  • Keep your jewelry simple. Let the patterns be your statement.
  • Make sure prints are different enough that they don’t confuse the eye.
  • Combine a loose print with a structured print. For example, a floral with a stripe.

Happy Mixing,
