Pattern Mixing | Lady Luxe life

The newest trend of Pattern Mixing is something I wouldn’t normally do, and it’s taken me awhile to get used to the idea, but I think it can be really fun.  I found an article by Buzzfeed on how to try out this new trend! Let me know if you try it…or what patterns you tried.

Here are the tips:

Choose 1 print as the dominant and 1 as the accent.

Whether you choose a big plaid or polka dots, use it for the main item like a pair of pants or a blazer.  Then, use the accent pattern in smaller pieces, like a handbag, or shirt.

Mix prints of different scales.

If you choose a plaid for your dominant pattern, use a smaller plaid for the accent color, for example.

Keep your fabrics in the same color family. 

I actually like it when it all has a common color of black.  I guess because it’s my favorite color!

Pick 2 different patterns that share a single color. 

Of course, I would pick red or black…but it helps it keep streamlined and look put together. 

Pair mixed prints with neutral for an easy vibe. 

I really like the look of a white shirt to set things in tone.

If you want to use the same pattern, invert the colors. 

So…if I used my 2 favorite colors, red and black patterns…I would go from red on black to black on red.  Maybe polka dots will be what I try? 

When in doubt, polka dots and stripes always work. 

Believe it or not…this is the easy match. 

This is just a few of their tips!  and if you want to make it easy…but a shirt that already premixes the patterns for you.  I found a few on ShopStyle!
