Mix & Match Prints Edition! March 24, 2017 06:00
Welcome to the 8th edition of Friday Finds!
Brought to you by the amazing, beautiful and always fashionable Peacock Babes!
This week is allllll about "Pattern Clashing"
We love trends that mix between the wonderful worlds of fashion and interior design. One of my favourites is the art of pattern clashing. Yes, art. Pattern clashing done well is an art form. It takes a good eye, a considered approach, and a little help from us to succeed for outfit of the day.
One of the best ways to mix patterns is to keep the colours in a similar palette. They can be the same colour, or shades of the same colour, or they can be four to five colours that complement each other. For example, shades of black grey & white, or shades of soft pink brown & white.
Now the big one, mixing patterns. We find that this is the ‘be all and end all’ of a successful pattern clash. We like to keep it in the family with geometric prints, but mix up organics with geometric. While geometric patterns will work well with each other, we recommend that you mix organic with geometric, instead of over-using organic as they can fight for dominance. And remember, introducing solid block colours is a great idea as it will give the eye a resting point and will soften your look.
