Mixing patterns is a trend that I absolutely love.  But it’s definitely much harder than it would seem.  Mixing patterns takes a lot of experimenting, but it’s a lot of fun – and you might just discover some hidden gems in your closet!

Two of the best pieces of advice when mixing patterns:

1. Mix patterns that are in the same color family

2. Mix patterns of different weights

Play around with what you’ve got in your closet, start out small – pair a printed scarf with a top of a different pattern.  And if you’re like me and have to “see it to believe it,” then this pattern mixing chart should be very helpful!
