ON MIXING PATTERNS:

Pattern mixing is not a license to wear really bad combinations of printed garments together… successful pattern mixing takes an editing eye and a great imagination. The best patterns to mix are connected to one another by color palette or have a similar “graphic” message – perhaps at different scales. The best looks are those that take one strong pattern direction and detail that pattern with a classic (think a leopard, a plaid, a stripe, or dot). Pattern mixing at its core is inspired by ‘ethnic’ dressing, however, to keep it contemporized, remember: less is more.
