If you have always wanted to mix patterns, but you are unsure of how to do it, remember this: One of the easiest combinations to pattern mix successfully is stripes and leopard. To make it even easier, pair a black and white striped top with a leopard print scarf. Throw in a splash of red and you look like you have known what you are doing all along. No one would ever guess you had doubts.
For additional inspiration in pattern mixing combinations, check out here where I paired leopard with a splash of red, here where I combined a striped shirt with leopard shoes, and here where I wore a striped shirt with leopard sandals and a mixed animal print scarf.
Today I paired a black and white striped tunic over a midi length black knit pencil skirt. To keep the look long and lean, I opted for leg hugging knee high black wedge boots. Then I layered a long silver tassel necklace under my leopard print scarf, topped the whole look with my favorite red cape (styled previously on my blog here) and added a vintage inspired Victorian themed brooch for a little added interest.
How do you like to mix patterns? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
Keeping it on the edge,
