The power of pattern lies in its ability to add energy to an outfit! Here are some rules of thumb when mixing multiple patterns:
Incorporate different sizes. When you mix patterns, make sure they’re not all the same size. Use large-scale pattern styles as a dominant pattern, and combine them with medium or smaller scale patterns for accents.
Use similar colours. Different patterns with different colours can overwhelm an outfit and make it feel chaotic.
Create a visual balance. Mixing and matching patterns and colours can expand your wardrobe's capabilities, but doing too much can overwhelm your look. Mix in solid colours every so often to break up the lines and shapes of your patterns.
Most of all have FUN. Getting dressed can be the best part of the day! Have fun mixing your patterns and with the few tips listed above you can't go wrong!
