I’ve always hated the idea of fashion trends. They come and go so frequently, making them fickle and limiting.
Think early 2000s: stretchy gaucho pants, obscenely-worded graphic tees, sequin bucket bags. Besides maybe your overalls, denim skirts and chokers (#comeback), have you worn these in the past decade? Probably not. And if you haven’t gotten rid of them by now, they’re sitting in your closet, collecting dust. #guilty
But one trend I’m loving (and don’t see going “out of style” anytime soon): pattern mixing.
At first, I didn’t know how to make this trend work for me. I’ve seen some crazy mixing that I thought I could never pull off. I learned that the trick is to mix a bold pattern with a more subtle pattern. That way, you don’t look like you got dressed in the dark!
So for this look, I paired one of my favorite basic tees with an old favorite, this Urban Outfitters floral triangle scarf.
