If you have visited my blog often you know that I love to mix patterns. To me stripes dots and florals are neutrals and can be paired with just about anything. I love pulling colors from the top to pair with another pattern in a similar color way. When pattern mixing look for similar colors to pull from. This helps make the mixing process easy and beautiful.
This top is such an amazing summer top. Lularoe sure knows how to make amazing pieces to style. This is their Irma top. It is a black background and a gorgeous grey white and yellow floral and leaf stem pattern. This would pair nicely with a cute grey geometric skirt, yellow geometric skirt or a black geometric skirt. See you use use the colors to create a different pattern? It is so fun and so so chic to wear.
I have owned this skirt for a long while now. Re-wearing items is something I love to do. You get so much more out of your closet and your pocket book if you re-style and re-wear items. This length is perfect for motherhood and perfect for summer. I snagged this on sale from Down East Basics and I have really style the heck out of it. This gorgeous yellow matches and pulls from the yellow print in my top. See pattern mixing is easy!
Like I said look for similar colors. Stripes, florals, and polka dots are considered neutral in the pattern mixing game. If you have a white skirt and plue polka dots, you can pair a really cute blue geometric top. Try to play of the size of the pattern as well. Try to keep the pattern similar or smaller than the bolder print. If you have huge dots, stick to small geometric shapes or stripes.
