Pattern Mixing :: Stripes and Leopard

I’ve become a firm believer that when it comes to fashion there are no rules anymore. The whole don’t wear white after Labor Day rule? GONE. Don’t mix and match black and white? DONEZO. I think that when it comes to fashion, anything goes these days, including mixing patterns.

Pattern mixing is one of my FAVORITE things to do lately. I’m like many other girls in the world when I look into my closet every morning and say I have NOTHING to wear. So untrue. With all of the different patterns and colors in my closet, there’s a world of possibilities for outfits.

One of my top go to patterns to mix is stripes and leopard. Over the past few years leopard to me has become a neutral and you can wear it with anything. Since it’s winter time, layering has been my go-to outfit these days to make sure I stay warm with these cold Midwest days. In this outfit I took a simple striped sweater and layered a thin leopard blouse underneath.

There’s so many possibilities when it comes to pattern mixing :: plaid with leopard, polka dots with stripes, solids with gingham. What’s your favorite way to pattern mix?
