I used to be widely afraid of pattern mixing – I always thought that if there was one element with a pattern or a print (like my high school uniform kilt skirt) that everything else had to be a solid or a neutral. However, seven years of fashion blogging have taught me that is simply just not true. There are so many ways chic bloggers that I follow have have styled pieces and made it pattern mixing – a small pattern with a large one, sticking with one main color scheme, playing with the size of the prints, and more!
The best part about this trend? No need to go shopping – you can simply mix the pieces in your closet! I have rounded up inspiration from small bloggers, large ones, and some of my past style icons including Wendy and Blair, pictured above. I have found ten examples I love and want to encourage all of you to go shopping in your own closet!
Is pattern mixing a fashion trend that you would try?
