STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Take a Chance with Patterns

Style Advice of the Week

As cheesy as it sounds, being able to show people who you are through your clothes is one of the best things about fashion. When I spotted this Fashionista in Philadelphia, her look was so different from what I normally see that it caught my eye immediately. When I asked her about her outfit, specifically her pants, she explained that everything she was wearing was from China. This Fashionista was confidently rocking Chinese street style in a city with a very different look. With clashing patterns being a trend lately on everyone from our street style satorialists to our red carpet beauties, this Fashionista hit the trend spot on while also representing where she’s from.

To achieve the look of mixing patterns like this Fashionista does, don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. For an effortless bohemian look, try these printed wide leg pants from Threadscene with this emerald printed top from Free People. Gone are the days of only sporting one patterned piece with only other solid color items. With winter quickly approaching accompanied by all of our neutral colored basics, it’s time to take a chance with clashing patterns. I mean, who wants to blend in with the crowd anyway?
