Find a Common Thread – Find a matching color scheme as in the picture above. 

Subtlety is the Key – Try not to go overboard with the mixing and matching.  Two competing patterns is enough.

Big and Small Unite – Don’t be afraid to mix a larger print with a smaller print. 

Two = Solid – If you have two different patterns on top, go with a solid bottom or vice versa!

Accessories Carry Pattern Too! – I love adding a second pattern in my accessories!  Uber-stylish!!!  LOVE!

Above all…have fun with fashion!  Let your personality shine!
