Everybody, Everywear | Pattern Mixing

outfit post: Iambic (Everybody Everywear)

Patterns are easy to mix is you think of it as rhyming.

Today's post is part of Everybody Everywear- a group event where bloggers join together and post outfits based on an agreed theme. This month the theme is: PATTERN MIXING. For some reason, wearing mixed prints is easy for me, I love mixing up a good cocktail of patterns. I sort of think of pattern mixing as writing poetry with clothing- you seek out rhythm and pattern and meter in poetry, the same elements that make up a good outfit. One of my favorite pattern mixes are polka dots and leopard print. As I've stated before, I think that polka dots are the animal print of the urban jungle.
It's hot here in Sac-town, so layering isn't really an option, so you're seeing  patterns stripped down to their essence: Checks (head scarf), Florals (sun glasses), Polka Dots (Romper), and Leopard (Shoes). The secret to a good pattern mixing is to find a unifying element- in this case the color black and similar size of pattern.

What are your favorite patterns to wear together?
