This fall there are no rules when it comes to mixing patterns. If you don’t believe me, just listen to the runways.
For my less in-your-face take on this trend, I paired a striped tee in one of this falls biggest colors – mustard yellow – with a great pair of vintage trousers I found that are brown wool with a grey pinstripe. I added in a snakeskin shoe (another all-the-rage print) and threw on my favorite vintage Louis Vuitton bag (thrifted) for good measure.
To break it down, I’m mixing:
- Horizontal stripes
- Snake print
- LV print
Which sounds pretty nuts – but the finished look isn’t actually that crazy. I kept everything in the warm, neutral family and kept the prints simple. The runways of course are mixing bold prints with bold colors, but I’ve found that you look a bit extreme wearing things like that around small towns in New Hampshire.
Next up on my list of fall trends to try out are:
- Plaid blazers
- Polka dots
- Shades of tan/camel
- Neon brights – orange and yellow
