One of the hottest things around right now is mixing patterns. I think a lot of people are afraid of mixing patterns but it really is fun and easy once you get the hang of it.
Some rules for mixing patterns when you are a newbie:
- Keep the colors in the same family. As you get braver, you can start mixing blue stripes with orange polka dots.
- Only use two patterns per outfit. You want to look effortless. And until you get the hang of it, keep it down to two.
- Don’t worry if your colors don’t match exactly. Have fun with it!
