Mixing Patterns

January 13, 2015

Hope you all had a great start of the week.

Here is some styling dose of mixing patterns in an outfit. Bringing disparate patterns together is what I consider the most creative and fun part of styling. In this look I brought together stripes and animal print, and balanced it off with solid shades.

I am big fond of wearing pencil skirts with high heel pointed pumps. Always find a reason to wear them even in this cold weather of NYC. I did freeze myself to death for few minutes of the shoot, but I guess it was worth it as I didn’t want to take away the beauty of red pumps by wearing dark tights. Style is not always about comfort, and sometime it’s OK to be in a little pain to look great ;-).

    I got to try stripes and leopard. Love the touch of red. Very refreshing and chic!!!!!! I must say I’m pretty bad at mixing patterns so try not to attempt it much. Would you mind sharing some tips on how to mix patterns without thinking too much. Some general rules that applies across any outfit?? Really appreciate it!
