Disclaimer: pattern mixing was a challenge for all of us!
I recently have started to play with pattern mixing more, but still tend to play it safe. Stick to the same pattern but play with scale or sharing a color palate are about as “mixing” as I tend to get! Today I decided to be a little bolder! Now, I dug through my closet for this one so I unfortunately can’t link everything for you to exactly copy but I’d like to think of this post as an outfit inspiration spring board for you to go try this trend on your own! (Though you can find my awesome pants by Lysse here! Wearing in ivy.)
I love this classic black and white buffalo check shirt, so I felt like it was the perfect base to have fun with. I then tried pairing it with a few different options!
Plaid and Floral:
Even if you are nervous about pattern mixing on your own you can have fun with this trend by finding pieces that do the hard part for you, like this floral scarf. If you look closely it pattern mixes all on its own! This scarf is a floral pattern on top of a black and white herringbone. (Similar)
Stripes (or check) and Polka-dots: A classic
Just OD Things: Geometric and Organic
