Patterned pieces are usually paired with neutral solids to avoid confusion in the ensemble. This week, step outside of the usual expectation and do something daring. When did it ever become a law to not match two patterned pieces together? So why not pair two staple items from your wardrobe? Two pieces with distinct patterns creates a bold look; so wear your ensemble with confidence. A lot of designers are producing looks with matching patterned tops and bottoms. Spice up the runway look and mismatch your patterns!
Summer break is in full effect for us college students and it’s only right to be bold in your summer attire. During my excursion to the local mall, I spotted one Fashionista whose ensemble exuded the essence of the mismatched patterned look. Her outfit is a great representation for simplicity and complexity in one single ensemble. She pairs two simple patterns with one another creating an overall complex ensemble. Color wise, the black patterned shirt matches perfectly with her brown patterned pants.
In order to achieve this look, be sure that the colors of your ensemble still match. Wearing different patterns with one another can get tricky, so be cautious in how you match your colors. If you decide to create a look with two unalike patterns, you must be aware of this detail. Summer break has officially arrived and nothing is wrong with stepping outside of your comfort zone! Your style is all about expression, so this summer, let your wardrobe do the talking.
