How comfortable are you mixing patterns? It used to make me nervous as it was one of those things that seemed to look good on others but hard to pull off on myself. I’ve been told the key to mixing patterns is to have a base color, one color found in both of the patterns. Plus, mixing different types of patterns that won’t compete too much with each other, like stripes with florals, or plaid with polka dots works really well.
In an attempt to encourage myself to mix patterns more often I tried on a bunch of different outfits from my closet above sticking to those two rules as much as possible (even if my instinct was telling me it wouldn’t work).
What do you think? Have you mixed patterns? Or are you afraid of the stares from the peeps that just don't get it? I'd love to hear how you mix and match!
