Combining Patterns That Work Well Together
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day / Evening with your loved ones.
As for today’s look, I am combining a few patterns that I think work really well together. The most important part is that the color combo is the same, so that makes it a lot easier to mix the patterns together and make it work. The color combo I chose for today’s look is black, ivory and red.
For the first look, I am wearing our popular Blaire Houndstooth Blazer which is designed with a classic houndstooth pattern fabric in black, ivory and red combo. I have styled this blazer a few other times and we only have a couple of pieces left in it.
It is a fantastic blazer in a traditional blazer body that will never go out of style. The gold buttons and the black under-collar I added give it a unique design with an updated look.
I am wearing it today with our new Ivory Pebble Stripe Button Front Shirt which is the same body as the sage color one I debuted for you last Tuesday. This one has an ivory background with the pebble stripes in black and gray.
This is another really nice soft rayon shirt with a fun pebble print vertical stripe. The body is semi loose and it has long sleeves with cuffs. However, it also has a tab and button detail that allows you to fold up the sleeves as I have done for today’s look.
In order to take this classic “shirt and blazer” look up a notch, I also added a neck scarf to the look, our Red Black Ivory Polka Dot Square Scarf. All three patterns; the houndstooth, stripes and polka dots work really well together especially when they are in the same color combo.
For the second look today, I styled the shirt with our Reversible Red Black Jacquard Shawl Wrap as a second option for pattern mixing. This quality shawl is made out of a beautiful jacquard fabric and you can wear it on both sides. One side has more black and less red and the other side is vice versa.
This shawl is currently on sale in our store so you will get an additional discount on it with our Valentine’s Day sale code and really make it a great deal with a final price only $27.20 + Free shipping.
For jewelry today I chose to wear our Black Gray Gold Bead Necklace and a Set of Two Gunmetal Black Gold Bead Bracelets with Tassel.
