Can You Handle the Flannel?

Hello lovely people! Yes, another post containing my obsession with stripes (seen here and here)… but this time with a little bit of a kick. There has been a trend for a while about mixing patterns together. I used to be so freaked out a bout it. But lately I’ve been digging it. There is a few different tricks when it comes to mixing patterns. Try any of the following:

  • Pick a dominating pattern
  • Keep fabrics in the same color family
  • Pick two different prints that have the same color
  • Treat stripes as a neutral
  • Tie a print around your waist for a quick flair of contrast
  • Use different textures

Here are some pictures of me mixing my favorite two patterns.

Dress: SheInside

Plaid shirt: Ralph Lauren (mens)

Shoes: Vans

Photographer: Robert Ewing 

Right now this is my favorite dress because it is so versatile. You can literally dress up or down this dress with vans or heels, flannel or blazer, and different types of statement jewelry. If you’ve never shopped on SheInside I would recommend it. One of my favorite bloggers, StyleBreaktown, actually wrote a review of it a while back if you’d like to check it out: Shop Review

Question of the day: What’s your favorite mix and match patterns?

As always,

    1. I love that dress so much. If it came in a million different patterns I would have bought them all.

      P.S. I love your blog you post such quality pictures.
