STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Mix and Match

June 1st, 2015 at 2:00am

Floral designs are accessible throughout the year. However, there is a noticeably larger presence of this trend during the summertime. The floral look is a very simplistic, common trend anyone can pull off. To make this style your own, try what this Fashionista did and mix and match with patterns.

There are certain patterns that are the perfect match. I gravitate towards combinations that are daring, but still simple enough so you don’t find yourself clashing. My favorite patterns to play with are stripes and floral. This Fashionista adds a bit of an edge to her simple floral kimono with her striped cropped top. A kimono is a perfect staple item to keep in your closet. The flowy appearance of this light jacket is very popular during the summertime. It is light enough to act as an extra layer even with the warmer weather.

To finish up your entire look, add accessories! Sunglasses are a necessity. This Fashionista decided to go with the cat eye style, giving her outfit a more classic and chic look. Jewelry wise, less is more! As the temperature rises, you choose to wear lighter articles of clothing. Same goes for jewelry. Give your outfit some accents by adding a simple gold necklace. A simple pair of gladiator sandals are the perfect footwear to throw on. Neutral colors go with any outfit, so you will get good use out of them.

As I said before, anyone can pull off this style. Don’t be afraid to take a risk once and awhile by mixing and matching patterns to make this style your own!
