Pattern mixing!

This top combines some of my favorite patterns (stripes, and poke-a-dots) into one super cute sweater!  Pattern mixing is a really fun way to make an outfit more interesting!  I think the key is to keep one of your patterns in neutral colors (like black and white) and then the other pattern can either be neutrals as well, or some sort of fun color combo.  Another cute way to mix pattern that I’m going to try soon is a black and white stripe t-shirt with a fun plaid button up flannel shirt!

With my outfit today I added yet a third pattern (also neutral colors) with the leopard print shoes which I think is really fun but if it’s too much pattern mixing for you, a cobalt blue pump would be awesome with this outfit!
