How to apply the pattern mixing trend to your wardrobe

In interiors we combine various patterns with ease and view the collaborated look as appealing. When we are getting dressed, however, patterns seems to become confusing and awkward. Perry Ellis was known for mixing patterns, especially stripes and polka dots. Ralph Lauren, too, is an expert at combining patterns. While working at Ralph Lauren and Perry Ellis I was constantly putting together various prints. Recently, I  have been inspired to mix things up a little. I started doing some research and found patterns to be mixed everywhere. This post will focus on fashion and later I will post on interiors etc.

Stripes look refreshing mixed with something in the same color tones. You can mix stripes with stripes, florals, polka dots, batik print etc.172192385723870378_mukFOZRN_bSolange Knowles for Madewell.

  1. Very inspiring! I need to be more daring with pattern mixing, don’t think I’ll have Diane Kruger’s guts to put a skirt on top of the dress though 🙂

  2. Funny how when I was young I was pattern mixing (much to the dismay of my mom) without realizing someday it would be in vogue! I love this post…the bold colors mixed with stripes, stripes mixed with stripes…I hope this is a trend that is here to stay!
