Pattern Play

Crop Top: H&M $10, Pants: Forever 21 $16, Flats: H&M (old), Purse: JCrew Factory $40 (sale), Sunnies: Urban Outfitters $20

Mixing patterns can be a little intimidating. Here are some tips that I keep in mind:
  1. Pair 2 different prints with a unifying color. That's what I did in this look. I chose white and blue from the pants and brought it out with the striped crop top.
  2. When in doubt, pair black and white. This might be the easiest way to mix prints. Black and white outfits are always so chic and modern. Try pairing black and white stripes with black and white polka dots.
  3. Pair the same print in two different colors. This is another simple way. Think of it as color blocking but with pattern. 
  4. Use patterned accessories. Try leopard print shoes or clutch with a striped dress. A printed cardigan or statement coat would also do the trick.

Hope these little tips help! Happy Thursday!
