outfit: pattern clash


This is probably the closest I’ve gotten so far to working the whole clashing patterns trend. Of course, stripes were a must (this top is easily the workhorse of my wardrobe). If there was ever a beginners guide to mixing patterns and prints, I’m sure ‘start with stripes’ would be right up there. This skirt happens to be one of the pieces I picked up on my recent tour of the new General Pants store at Carindale and I can quickly see it becoming a favourite this summer.

    You look great! You know i'm a stripe lover too πŸ™‚

    I'm not someone who has really clashed prints that much either but I like your attempt at it – looks good! Maybe I should give it a go.

    I'm really loving this clash – beats the usual stripe + floral combo.
    Also, I must have this skirt, thanks for sharing!

      Haha thanks. Now that you mention it I can imagine it being the kind of scarf print that my gran would wear.

    I would never have thought to put two such clashing items together, but it looks amazing on you! πŸ˜€

    You really can't go wrong with stripes. I have a top from Aubin and Wills that I was a little hesitant to buy, but I'm so glad I did! Now, to find the perfect clashing skirt… Send me some of your thrifting skills, please? You do always seem to find the most amazing stuff xx

      *sending thrifting vibes* I haven't gone thrifting in a while actually, but am itching to get back in amongst all my favourite haunts.
