Pattern Play

By Lori on Jun 16 2014

It’s time to break every fashion rule you were ever taught and embrace one of summer’s biggest trends, mixing prints! Fashion is taking a daring approach and matchy-matchy is out. From leopard print to florals, polka dots and stripes, there is no wrong match. The key to mastering this look is picking prints that have the same vibe and a common colour. The colour creates the cohesion of the outfit!

Bold fashionistas like Bip Ling mix louder prints like leopard print and red diamond check but breaks the madness up with a white shirt. Stripes and florals are a match made in heaven, put together perfectly by Diane Kruger and Olivia Palermo understands the importance of colour, keeping to the same hues throughout. Solange Knowles is the exception to the rule, Queen of mix match, meshing every pattern and colour known to man and yet somehow she pulls it off!

If you’re feeling brave then check out our clashing prints and mix and match them up in your ensembles with careless, reckless abandon. It is allowed just this once!
