THT- Pattern Mixing for Spring


Pattern mixing and certain patterns will be popular in Spring 2022.

Its a Trend for Spring

Pattern mixing for Spring will be hot this year and I am encouraging you to give it a try.. I have always enjoyed pattern mixing, so I thought I would give you a little “Spring Flavor” with my floral dress, while keeping still in season with my brown plaid blazer. I certainly will be experimenting with my Spring closet, and hope to bring you some bright pattern mixing looks that are showing for Spring 2022.

So, with that influence, I decided to pair a few patterns here with small scale plaid and small florals in brown, tan and black. The addition of the scarf adds a bold snakeskin print and works well because it has those same colors in it.

The dress is a Karina dress i have had for many years. I don’t own too many smaller scaled florals but loved the style and colors here. You will be seeing more bold/larger floral patterns in the Spring. (Which I have a closet of)

Types of Prints for Spring

If you haven’t given pattern mixing a try, don’t be shy!  Gingham will be out in various garments soon, so try pairing some gingham with bold florals or stripes. If you have a full-length mirror at home just experiment. Clothes are meant to be “played” with. 🙂

Mango is showing more geometric prints, and many have a 60s vibe.

Florals and stripes are a great combination, so perhaps start there.

Patterns that are showing on the runways for Spring are bold stripes, large florals, gingham, polka dots, geometric and retro prints (as I mentioned) and others.

What’s Happening- Spread the Love

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that we enjoyed the Valentine’s Day celebration at a local Vineyard. Good wine and truffles were had by all. Except Truffles couldn’t eat “truffles”! and neither could Gibson!

I couldn’t wait to hand out my Valentine dog treats to all the dogs at the vineyard. My hubby is used to me “making my rounds”.

Last week I got a volunteer packet for me to spend 1-2 days a week at our local Cornelius Animal Shelter. I got the Grand Tour and met the dogs as well. I had to laugh at “Moose” who was an English bulldog. So, that is one new thing on my agenda.

    This is such an elegant yet business-like look. I like the earth tones in the patterns along with the black and brown backgrounds colors.

    Lovely, subtle pattern mix,Jess! The rich textures are beautiful also, and add so much interest and depth to your outfit. Volunteering at the animal shelter sounds like a perfect fit for such a dog lover! I think you will bring the dogs a lotto joy and they will bring it back to you! Thanks for the link up and have a good week!

    Thanks for the feature! 🙂

    That dress is beautiful on you and I really like the print mixing with it! It reminds me of a little black floral print warp dress I have that I really need to get out again to give it another wear! 🙂 So exciting you’re able to volunteer at the shelter too!

    Thanks for the link up!

    Hope your week is off to a good start! Another wet week here 🙂

    You are such a animal lover aren’t you. I think they are very happy with you at the shelter. Great mixing, I like print mixing even better then wearing just one print.
