It was long a fashion rule that patterns were not to be mixed. That being said, in recent fashion history, it’s been a trend to mix your patterns to make big, bold statements. In even more recent fashion history, it has been very on trend to mix and match floral prints with striped prints. Mixing florals and stripes: a fashion do.

Here’s a little mix & match inspiration board I put together- a great idea when you want to play with concepts, patterns, and possible fashion choices.
So don’t think twice before mixing your patterns! Break the old rules and make new ones! And if you aren’t sure about the idea, try an inspiration board, or start small… wear a floral shirt and a scarf with stripes or the other way around. Just play around with it and enjoy yourself!
