How to Mix Patterns

July 01, 2016

Remember earlier this week when I shared my Talbots pink paisley skirt and I wasn't overly pleased with my top selection?  Well this time I did a hem tuck.  I think sometimes it is referred to as a half tuck, but this is clearly not half tucked in!! I like the way this striped tee works with my paisley skirt much better.  Don't you agree?  You know I am always up for some fun pattern mixing and my Clare V leopard bag was the perfect amount of mixing this outfit needed!  Don't be afraid to mix and match items in your wardrobe.  All of these items were already in my closet so there was no need to purchase anything new for a fun summer look. 

Style tip:  When pattern mixing be sure to keep your prints in two different scales. If you are still hesitant to mix things up, read my entire post on pattern mixing. Notice how the narrow stripe with the larger paisley works well; a wider stripe would have been too much.  Remember the rule: leopard is a neutral!
