How To Pattern Mix

Summer Stars + Stripes | adoubledose.comHappy Monday, y’all! We hope you had a great weekend. Our was busy, but also relaxing at the same time! We have been super swamped with covering the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which is AMAZING, so don’t forget to stock up for fall. Our mom just placed a big order online, haha. Read more about the sale here! Anyways, we had a few requests to do a post on pattern mixing. We are both major fans of pattern mixing, especially in the summer, because it takes an outfit from basic to fun! It doesn’t have to be a huge amount of patterns going on, but just a few will work great!
Summer Stars + Stripes | adoubledose.comIn this outfit, we paired these adorable striped pointed flats with this star + stripes scarf. This would be a super cute outfit for Labor Day in a few months, or just for a festive outfit! This scarf is so soft, too, which is a major plus!

Summer Stars + Stripes | adoubledose.comAs far as pattern mixing, here are our guidelines:

  • mix prints of different scales (smaller prints with larger prints)
  • keep colors in the same color family
  • use stripes as a neutral 
  • tie a printed shirt around your waist
  • mix prints and neutrals:
    • chambray and leopard or gingham
    • polka dots and chambray
  • Mix complimentary prints:
    • stars and stripes
    • polka dots and stripes
    • leopard and stripes
    • plaid and leopard
