3 Steps to Mixing Patterns

Yes yes yes! This season is great! This is so revolutionary! When else in recent fashion history has there been another such exciting development which lifted a fashion ban on something previously thought of as a completely taboo?

Remember my quick how-to guide to mixing patterns? Well I’m still obsessed with mixing prints and patterns, so here’s a look at a fall outfit which does just that!

Make sure that the prints are of different sizes though so you don’t look like an optical illusion!

I hope this trend lasts…I’m quite enjoying it.
