My week has been manic . Hope you all are having a good week. I have been so crazily busy with work , family and of course my blog. Phew!!! Not easy at all. Kudos to all other bloggers out there…

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen this post a while ago. This is just details of this outfit.

You know mixing patterns isn’t such a difficult thing to do, although before now I used to think that I could never pull it off. But believe me, it’s not as difficult as it looks.

You need to really just go with what’s on your mind. You are sure to get it right and even if you don’t, don’t worry about it, just feel confident in yourself and you will be surprised to see that people are going to commend you because these days, mashups is the new cool. Hahaha.

So, when mixing patterns, four basic things to consider.
– the common colours on the clothes; there is always a dominant or common colour on the clothes for them to go together.
– The patterns on the clothes ; this played a basic role in mixing patterns. The patterns may be different or the same. Eg; check and plaid or leopard print and zebra print, polka dots and stripes or even stripes on stripes, in the same colours or even in different colours. Just stay tuned for more ways to pattern mix and print mix too.
– Are the clothes from the same shop ; when the clothes are from the same shop, the fabric tends to be, look and feel the same. So it’s easier to wear the patterns together even though they are of different colours.
– Just simple confidence ; last but not the least, just complete the look with your look of confidence, if you wear mixed patterns without confidence, then the look isn’t complete.

Well, I hope this will help you in pattern mixing, if it’s not clear, please do not hesitate to give me a shout πŸ‘‡on the comment section. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your week. Bye for now.
Love, Juliana.image
