How to Mix Patterns Like a Pro!

How to mix patterns like a pro

It’s officially fall in NYC and I know that for many of us, the dip in temperature has us running to our vast selection of cozy black clothing.

Which I totally get of course.

Black and darker colors in general, are easy go-to’s and sometimes very fitting of our mood during this season. But this fall/winter season I really wanted to try and help inspire you (and myself) with some creative ways you can add a little more life to your wardrobe.

So prepare yourself pretty lady, cause we’re about to get into some cool and unique ways you can add + mix patterns with your clothing, to take your winter wardrobe from super dull to super fun!

Combine inverse colors

Like a garment with a black base and white pattern and a garment with a white base and black pattern.

Wear the same print in different colors/shades of the same color family

A good rule of thumb when pairing different colors is to choose colors that opposite each other on the color wheel.

Wear 2 different prints but in the same color.

Different patterns Same color

Wear 3 vibrant prints together

Be sure 2 of the patterns share colors that are complimentary to each other (opposite on color wheel) and make the 3rd pattern a neutral.

One thought on “How to Mix Patterns Like a Pro!

  1. I love these looks. Especially the first one!
    I love stripes but I prefer to dress minimally in all the same shades
    Usually the same colour family! Some days I’m all about lavenders and purples
    Other days reds or oranges etc. and for work which is massage therapy
    I prefer bland greys and greiges! I have a couple of great prints in my wardrobe but almost never wear them! I get sick of looking at them
    And can’t see spending the money on things I rarely wear
    When I do people are surprised but they don’t really make me
    Happy. Thank you
