PLAYING WITH PATTERNS
today we are talking about mixing some great fall patterns into your wardrobe…
i love this look because it’s very comfortable and casual, but at the same time comes off very chic. the buttoned up silk shirt tucked into a pair of patterned shorts is the perfect outfit for fall in los angeles. (you could always do a patterned pant for the colder climates out there.) A cateye liner, an orange lip and soft curls add a sophisticated touch and also brings in some femininity to balance out the more masculine prints.
to throw one more print into the mix, i added these leopard loafers with a metallic cap toe. i got them for $50 at nordstom rack. i always seem to score when it comes to shoes there. i’ve sandwiched the larger print on the shirt & the shoes, keeping the smaller scale pattern on the shorts in the center. this scale change breaks up the outfit and allows me to mix three different prints together.
if you wanted to bring in some color, you can add a bright sweater that compliments the tones of your patterns. i rolled up the sleeves so you could still see the stripes peeking out. the sweater gives the look a much more laid-back vibe as well.
