Mixing patterns is a huge trend right now, but you know what I've been dabbling in lately? Introducing the same pattern into an outfit in a couple different ways. For example...the stripes in this skirt coordinate pretty perfectly with the stripes on the wedges. While you don't need an exact match, the key to making this particular look work is to pick at least one element besides the pattern itself (polka dots, stripes, etc.) and keep it consistent in all the pieces (scale, color, etc.). Take a few minutes to sift through your closet with that idea in mind and I bet you'll come up with all kinds of fun, new possibilities. I'd love to hear all about it if you do!
