“Fall” for Pattern Mixing

Full disclosure, it feels like the hottest of summers still in Florida, but it’s officially FALL — my favorite fashion season. There’s something about being able to go from comfy, chic sweaters with skinny jeans and booties to full on leather that makes me a very happy girl 😄🤗

While the weather is still not where it needs to me, I’m struggling to keep parading my summer brights and Lilly when it’s practically OCTOBER. So I’ve decided, regardless of the temps, I’m slowly but surely introducing some fall wardrobe staples, darker colors (including my eggplant nails), bold textures and pattern play. 😜😬

I love planning fun, bold looks when it’s crispy and cool outside (a girl can dream in Florida or wait until “winter”). And one of favorite fall traditions is mixing patterns and textures.

Here are my favorite pattern plays:

Floral + Stripes

Buffalo Plaid + Leopard

Polka Dots + Leopard

(Small) Polka Dots + Zebra

Leather + Floral

Herringbone + Zebra

Lace + Animal Print (choose print based on lace texture and color)

The possibilities are endless, and while some combos may seem a bit “wild,” trust me, they work. If you’re confident in your outfit choices and own the look, the compliments will follow. Also, animal print is a neutral…so a lot of these looks are more tame than cray!

So go in your closet and pick two crazy patterns or items that you think may not go together and GO FOR IT!

Happy Dressing,

Ivette
