Big Stripe, Little Stripe

7.16.2015

When you think pattern mixing what comes to mind? For me it is generally two totally different and bold prints. Which was a little overwhelming for my brain. So I decided to start small. Pattern mixing doesn't always have to be two bold and different prints. It can be as simple as mixing two similar prints.

This top is the perfect intro for pattern mixing. Stripes on stripes is still pattern mixing. Especially if you are using one pattern that is large and one pattern that is smaller and thinner. I like to think of this top as a gateway to pattern mixing for those of us that aren't quite brave enough to through on the floral and leopard and head out the door. Have you ever tried pattern mixing? What is holding you back?
