I am joining in with Mix and Match day over at Everybody Everywear which means incorporating pattern mixing in to today's outfit. I have always been a bit matchy matchy in my approach to styling but since I have been on my year long shopping ban and creating a new outfit every day I have come to take greater risks and have been venturing into the world of pattern mixing. I have found that stripes tend to go with many other patterns and so far they have featured a few times. I am pretty keen to try out some other looks and I should really feature tartan at some point particularly as it is my national dress. I believe the key to pattern clashing is to choose a common accent colour, as I have with navy, and mix very different types of patterns such as florals and geometrics.
I am looking forward to seeing how everyone else wore the look and if they followed these 'rules' but you know what they say rules are made to be broken.
