Hello pretty friends,

Mixing and matching patterns can be a tedious task when it comes to styling your outfits. But by being aware of a few simple tips it shouldn’t have to be.

When wearing patterns together make sure to:
  • Use patterns that vary in scale and size.
  • Stay away from a pattern top and pattern bottom. Wearing them at the same time will be visually busy.
  • Try not to use patterns that are exactly the same, the key is to create contrast. For example my favorite contrasting patterns are floral and striped combo and of course the leopard and stripe. But don’t disregard polka dots they harmonize beautifully with the leopard print too.

For this outfit I’m wearing the chic leopard print on my infinity scarf and a variety of stripes for contrast pared with comfy solid black leggings.

Regardless of the season start and venture with mixing the patterns you already have making sure to follow the simple tips.

Until next time pretties (:

With love, 
Kris 

P.S. The leopard print is one of my all time favorites, which is perfect for mixing patterns no matter where you decide to wear it.
