mixing patterns

This is a great casual summer day outfit. I love mixing patterns like this because they are fun and don’t look odd together. The floral shorts are so pretty and were a sale item from J.Crew a couple of weeks ago. The tank top is an old Juicy Couture top that I bought four years ago in New York City but have just started wearing.

I haven’t conquered the rules for mixing patterns but I just like to make my own rules up sometimes. I don’t like stripes and polka dots together but florals and stripes are cute. I think this outfit is perfect because the navy in the shorts goes with the navy stripes and is a classy combo.

Fashion is about creating your own style, and wearing what you feel comfortable in. Sometimes things might not look that great, but it’s up to you to make those choices and do what you feel best. Wear what you want and what you feel comfortable in. Style is about mixing and matching and being creative.

What are other patterns you like to mix?
