Mix Match Fashion: How To Mix Patterns In Your Outfits

Hi babes & happy Monday! How was your weekend, did you do anything fun? We never have much going on during the weekend but we did meet up with one of our friends for lunch on Sunday. Always love being able to catch up!!

If you follow along with us on Instagram then you would know I posted a sneak peek of today’s look. One of those outfits that you just can’t share fast enough! Seriously one of my FAVE’S so let’s just get right to it.

Mix and Match Fashion

Love me some mixing patterns and so should you! Just kidding.. BUT mix and match fashion trends are coming in strong this season & they’re one of the manyย trends not to ditch this year. So you should probably jump on board if you haven’t already ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s kinda like the rule that you don’t wear white after Labor Day. We’re here to admit that hey, we’re proud offenders and not afraid! Even if you wear white year round doesn’t mean that you won’t hesitate when pairing two different graphic prints together. But listen, just try it before knocking it!

This season we are seeing A LOT of fun bold print pants & bright colored sweaters / tops. Some of our favorite places to shop this trend are at:ย H&M,Forever 21, ASOS,ย Zara, and Bershka.


How To Mix Patterns In Your Outfits

Stick with classic items such as stripes

Leopard is truly a neutral in the print mixing world – it will pair with just about anything

Pair prints from the same kind of family – small print gingham with larger print gingham

Style a bright print top with a lighter print bottom

Keep the silhouettes simple and classicย & let the print mixing do the talking

Pair patterns and prints that the colors go together

Remember mixing patterns is supposed to be fun!

Most importantly DON’T overthink it!ย You’ve got this girl

Patterns We Love To Mix & Match
