Lessons in Fashion:
a sporadic series where I share little tips with you that help make my wardrobe stretch. 

Today's Lesson: 

There are degrees of pattern mixing. Find the degree that you're comfortable with and try to kick it up a notch. 

Pattern Mixing can be a style that is out of a lot of ladies' comfort zones. Today I want to show you a progression of how I styled a floral/stripe pattern mix three ways. It's a slight progression of comfort. Start out small, and work your way to big and bold. Here we go!

1 - Stripe Skirt and Floral Shoes

Necklace: Kendra Scott via Rocksbox 
(Use code beckygoerendxoxo for your first month free)
Top: Gap
Skirt: LuLaRoe 
Cuff: Gorjana via Rocksbox 
Shoes: Express c/o Brandzaffair

If you are deathly afraid of pattern mixing, getting a pair of patterned shoes is where to start! Pair them with a striped top or skirt, and you're inching your way to the next degree.

2 - Stripe Skirt and Lace Top

Necklaces: Kendra Scott and House of Harlow 1960 via Rocksbox 
Top: Banana Republic via Thred Up

Skirt: LuLaRoe 
Shoes: old

Now, this may not seem like a pattern mix, but it's a subtle one!  The textured lace top takes you to the next degree because the patterns are right next to each other though the floral lace doesn't have multiple colors. It's a flirty, fun mix!

3 - Stripe Skirt and Bold Floral Top

Top: Target
Skirt: LuLaRoe 
Shoes: old

This is the highest degree! A nice stripe and a bright floral. I love it. It's fun, but not clashy. With a black and white stripe, you can mix it with a lot. 

What do you think? Are you ready to try it out? Which are you most comfortable with? Pick one and then take it to the next level!

Also, check out this post from last fall about pattern mixing with scarves and tops!
