Pattern mixing may seem like a daunting task, but when mastered, it opens up a world of possibilities. Instead of standing in front of your closet each morning thinking you’ve got nothing to wear, try reinventing your favourite pieces. It’s also the perfect opportunity to have some fun with the clothes you’ve got hiding in the back of your closet.

Good to remember:
+ Keep it simple.
+ Stick to patterns in the same colour scheme.
+ Use stripes as your jumping off point. Stripes look good with leather, polka dots, floral, lace and even plaid or gingham.
+ Jazz up your look with an embellished clutch or animal print shoes.
+ Have fun!
