Obsessed with, Inspired by: Pattern Play

One of the best ways to spice up an outfit is the addition of pattern.  Either to give some extra flare to a plain piece, or to create some depth with the mix and match of patterns on multiple garments.  Something as simple as tying a flannel or checked shirt around your waist can bring new life to an outfit.  The key to mixing and matching patterns is to have a variety within the patterns.  Mix a large pattern with a smaller one.  Two large patterns on one another can be a bit too overwhelming.  Keep balance within the outfit.  But most of all, have fun with it.  Just play around in your closet, and you are bound to find mixable patterns you may have never thought of before.
