I don’t know about you, but plaid is my favorite pattern this time of year. I could literally wear it everyday! And it’s so versatile. Perfect for dressing up or down.
So, when I got the opportunity to work on a campaign with Belk and Crown & Ivy, the first thing I looked at were their plaid items. They had so many pretty things! Unfortunately, I couldn’t decide on just one plaid, so I purchased two. Then came the dilemma of how to style both of them uniquely. I then got a brilliant idea.
Why not style them together?
I looked between both items in my hands and jumped for the idea. And to make the look even more unique, both items were button-downs, so I decided to wear one on to of the other. My co-worker helped me style the sleeves and fix the collar. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the result.
Like my post a few weeks ago, remember the fundamentals of pattern mixing.
1 | Both patterns need a common color.
2 | One pattern needs to be smaller than the other.
And thats it. I put one right on top of the other and loved it! It’s all about confidence and daring. Mix it up!
