A couple of weeks ago a reporter reached out to me asking for my advice on how to mix different patterns in your outfits. I gave an educated response, stating that the best way to go is to play within one color palette and to use similar patterns in different shapes. Then, I decided to wear this cute stripe dress (stripes) with my velvet Jimmy Choos (stripes!) and Antik Kraft clutch (stripes again!), and I figured that all those fashion rules are very approximate. If you put a couple of pieces together and those feel right, that’s the perfect way to go. Recalling a famous Ralph Lauren’s quote, “Fashion is about something that comes from within you” so if you feel that it works it is definitely worth trying.
