MIXING AND MATCHING YOUR PATTERNS
“There is a bohemian ethnicity to pattern mixing and matching this season. Popular dualities include stripes with florals, dots with batiks, plaids with lacey looks, and abstract artisan pictorals with simple geometrics. Patterns are tied together with like color stories or are completely random in combination with one another. Varying scales and intensity of color offers another dimension to further enhance pattern mixing possibilities. The result is a look that is at once ornamental yet somehow familiar… inspired by various ethnicities and eras gone by.”
