PATTERN PLAY

It’s common in fashion to hear you should never mix prints to avoid clashing. However, patterns can be mixed and matched in many fun and creative ways. From floral and stripes to plaid and paisley, there are an abundance of fashionable prints to style uniquely. Step out of the mundane and play around with these tips to curate an outfit full of unique personality.

LE CROP MINI BOOT IN LEOPARD
$265
BRETON STRIPE CARDI
IN CAMEL MULTI
$528

There are both bold and subtle ways to approach the idea of mixing prints you may not typically put together. This first take on pattern play is a great way to start out. The camel striped pattern on this FRAME cardigan pairs well with the FRAME leopard pant. This look works because the color family is similar. Wear this look for your next day out running errands or lunch with friends.

BREANN LONG FITTED BLAZER
$550
JONATHAN SIMKHAI HALEN
RUCHED METALLIC
$595

Another helpful tip is to put a less busy, larger pattern with a busier smaller one. That way, the pieces can balance each other out. This Jonathan Simkhai dress from MARKET is stunning alone, but add this Alice + Olivia blazer on top to create something special and eye-catching.

FLORAL PAISLEY DRESS
$2,740
CASHMERE WOOL SILK INTERIOR
ABSTRACT INTARSIA KNIT CAPE
$3,990

Take it up a notch with a variety of modern and retro. This show-stopping Akris cape over ETRO’s floral paisley dress is a perfect blend of both. The two pair well because the dainty floral fabric complements the large structured grid pattern.

POPPY PRINT SHIRT DRESS
$1,590
WOOL WRAP COAT
$798

You cannot go wrong marrying two classics: plaids and florals. This tailored, neutral Ralph Lauren Wool Coat layers nicely with this colorful Carolina Herrera Poppy Dress. Sophisticated yet exciting, it’s a perfect pairing for your next fall evening. The autumnal colors of the wrap coat make it fall, while the rich florals of the dress make it fun.

FAWN PRINTED SILK BLOUSE
$350
SIRA SKIRT
$598

For this outfit, the bolder, the better. When one design is on the busier side, it’s wise to pick an accent color from it and find a coordinating, two-tone print that acts as your neutral. Remember, confidence is key.

WIDE-LEG FLORAL-PRINT
CREPE PANTS
$790
MARITIME MARIN SWEATER
$375

Finally, don’t forget to mix casual and dressy fabrics to amp up creativity. This combination of La Ligne’s Marin striped sweater with the Lela Rose Crepe floral pants is a great way to get more use out of your wardrobe. Happy mixing!
