At the end of each season I tend to get bored with my clothes and I become uninspired.  I know we still have two months left of summer, but I am starting to tire of my daily casual style.  I am happy that school is starting soon to expand my wardrobe a bit.  When I get bored with my current clothes I try to mix things up and try to get creative.

To add some variation to my daily looks I have been trying to add a little pattern mixing.  In the fall I love to pattern mix and find that is easy.  Summer styles I find a little harder to bring in pattern mixing.  I think this is due to not wanting to layer because of high temperatures.  Plus the items are smaller!

 

What makes these double stripes work is the color palette and the different sized stripes.  When mixing like prints there needs to be a definite size difference in the patterns.  The fact that this tank has wide bands of colors versus the smaller stripes of the shorts makes it not look to busy.  There is a fine line when mixing prints, and I find that I walk that line like a tight rope!  How do you pattern mix?
