WEARING THEN: Pattern Mixing

The term pattern mixing always kind of boggled my mind because in truth when I see examples of it in really Fashionable blogs or on the runway I just didn’t get it. I guess there was nothing WRONG with it but nothing I would feel comfortable wearing! I took some cues from the FASHION Magazine Style Panel most notably this post and this post. I liked that they pattern mixed with similar colours. To my untrained eye this is the easiest way to experiment.

Pattern Mixing Black and White - Toronto Beauty Reviews
Top: Old Navy (other sizes here)
Belt: Winners old (similar here)
Skirt: Banana Republic gift (similar here)
Scarf: H&M (similar here and here)
Shoes: Nine West (here)

I took the tips from the Style panel and tried to with similar colours. Can’t really go wrong with black & white + grey right? Here’s a close up of the outfit (apologies for the creases in the skirt!).

What are your thoughts on pattern mixing? And does this outfit make the cut?
