Is it just me or are you dying for a getaway?
This year has been flying by and I’ve been so ready for a break lately! Upon deciding to take a quick and much-needed short stay away, I needed to pull some casual outfits together for my trip. Sure I could play it safe and match up a few solid pieces and call it a day, but why do that when I can mix up a few patterns and look even more spectacular?
For a fun resort look, I pulled together a jacket and blouse with two different patterns.
There are reasons why this looks just works. If you will notice, both pieces share white as a similar color, which is one technique to follow when mixing patterns. The second reason is both pieces share the same type of striped patterned print. There is also another mix going on that is not so obvious, which is the mix between a tailored jacket, and flowing ruffled blouse.
The next time you want a different look, don’t let the fear of mixing patterns leave you perplexed. Just remember the tips I shared above and you will be well on your way! I challenge you to experiment with mixing plaids, florals, paisleys, polka-dots and strips.
Have fun! 🙂
