Stripes and Spots: They Are A Natural Together

Today I am talking about two classic patterns that go wonderfully together.
Stripes and Spots, in this case...leopard spots to be exact.
 
If you have been timid about pattern mixing,
 this is a great first step toward it.
  Not to crazy and you can be
 very subtle with the colors as well.
In this instance I went for a very neutral palette, 
yet mixed it up a bit with the combo of black, brown and gray.  
Don't be afraid to mix these colors. 
 They look great together.

Of course, me being me~ 
I had to add a hint of color with my necklace.
If you don't want to pattern mix this much at once,
 start with a striped top and add a leopard scarf.
You will love the look.

Are you a bold pattern mixer?

This completely works, Brett! Cute look!

I love this combination - the colours may be muted but the print mix is anything but! I think I would probably call myself a bold mixer of colours and prints. xxx

That jacket is perfect over the stripes!

Love the stripes and leo coat, perfect together! It is bold because the stripes are wide and stand out, and I LOVE that. I am especially glad you added that very cool pink necklace, love the color and the length.
You truly are gifted at the pattern mix, and each outfit is a treat!
XX, Elle
