Pattern Play

Those rare instances in which clashing works in your favor.

I bought this jacket on sale at Zara about two years ago, and it's still one of my favorite Summer layering pieces. The intricate, embellished pattern made the jacket look vintage from the get-go, and it only seems to get better with wear. I'm also always on the lookout for ways to pair different prints together, and this one seems to go with everything. 

My key to making mixed prints work? Pair smaller, intricate designs with bolder, larger prints (stripes, polka dots, or even a tribal print like these shorts). You can also try to match things up using similar color themes and tones. But most importantly, don't be afraid to experiment! You might surprise yourself with the results...
