Mix it up II


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.

Take a style cue from these ladies and mix things up…

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!

What do you think about these looks? I can’t wait to start mixing things up for spring and summer!

Also, I was wondering if there’s any particular trend you would like to see a post on. I’d love to hear your ideas. Please leave a comment below.
