If a good mix & match sounds like your kind of thing but the fear of looking like you were still wearing your pajamas holds you back, we are here to save you. The mixed patterns game is on this spring, but it’s something you’ve got to do wisely.
Here is how to elevate your mixed patterns and look just as springy as you can.
Keep the same color shade
Like love science goes, if there is at least one thing in common, then it’s something you might work on. Keep the base steady and add on that.

Black & White is always right
Striped, checked, fantasy: whatever your pattern of choice, black and white can handle it from head to toe.
Technically, stripes are no neutral. In practice, oh yes they are. For some unknown reason, stripes will hold your bold outfit together and make it look as if it’s no big deal.

Blame it on the clutch
Still afraid to mess it up? Maybe you can start with something softer, like giving all responsibility to your clutch. Let it be the carrier of the bold print. If it feels all too intense, you can still say it’s not yours (wink).
Go big or go home
There is no good fashion without a little experimentation, and this season is your testing ground. This recipe is easy: pick an item you love, then take something completely different; go out.
