How to Pattern Mix without Looking Like a Clown | A Rose in Bloom
Pattern mixing. It's in right now, but not everyone knows how to do it. For some, it's terrifying. For some, they don't fear it enough.  No one wants to walk out looking they work at a circus, but pattern mixing, when done right, can be fine.

One of the easiest rules is to keep to the same color scheme.  For example, this look is mostly black and white. Because the colors compliment, everything looks in it's place.

Another easy way is to accessorize. See how this girl is using a printed scarf as an accessory? It looks fine because she kept it simple.  The colors match and the patterns are similar enough that it doesn't look too loud.
