25 Oct THT – Pattern Mixing Tips for Fall
I’m giving you a few pattern mixing tips for Fall this season.
Pattern Mixing Styling Tips
I’ve talked about pattern mixing on the blog, and here I am sharing a reel with such a mix. This outfit gives me “Ralph Lauren Vibes”, with the structured blazer and plaid patterns. The dark browns melding into other warm tones.
- Patterns should be of similar size. Try to mix several that will be complimentary. The blazer has a houndstooth smaller pattern, as does the dress in a slightly larger checked pattern.
- Leopard is your friend! Leopard is a neutral, so it is a pattern that can pair with anything. I love to style my leopard scarves with other patterns in my outfit. Or if I am wearing a leopard blazer, I could easily add a checked skirt or dress, or a floral. Easy mixing!
- If you are dealing with two prints, a great way to break it up visually, is by adding in a solid color- ie, a shoe or handbag.
- Don’t be afraid to challenge your “inner stylist” and work with several patterns. You might be surprised in what you create.
Here I styled a Soft Surroundings brown plaid drop waist dress with a blazer with the same shades from H&M last year. I just love a structured look. Another cool idea is to add more texture for even more Fall Goodness! Try a pair of textured brown tights with this, and add a solid bag.
All of these pieces are older from my closet, and the boots are leather gifted from Jambu a few years ago.
What I try and get across, is that you can certainly follow style rules, but also have fun creating using your closet.
Not looking to repeat yesterday’s synopsis, have a read. I have more appts throughout the next several months but was able to go to a live music concert, and out to breakfast with my mom. I am not able to sit long but am supposed to “aggravate ” the nerve for the pain center to determine if the nerve block worked. Nevertheless, it is important for my mental health to get out on the weekends and do something fun, otherwise, you mind gets deep into an illness and can make things worse.
