Pattern Mixing {plaid & stripes}

A popular fall fashion trend this year is pattern mixing. This trend is somewhat "out of my comfort zone" but I'm starting to like it more and more. I'll admit, I can be matchy-matchy at times!

 I'm loving the look of mixing plaid and stripes. This fringed plaid scarf is so comfy (perfect for fall and winter) and only $10.90 at Forever 21 right now! My color isn't available online anymore, but the navy/grey is (check the stores if you like this color). I may have mixed patterns with this look, but I matched the burgundy and navy colors (baby steps!). My burgundy blazer is from the Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl's. I LOVE her blazers and this one is no exception. You can shop a very similar one here. By the way, never go to Kohl's without a coupon! :)  

This LOFT striped tee is perfect for layering under the blazer. I've been wearing it so much lately because of how soft and flattering it is! If you're looking for a great layering tee, this one is it. It's regular price right now, but keep checking the LOFT site for sales. 

I bought these red Bandolino ankle boots at Boscov's last winter. I absolutely love them and was thrilled to discover they are available on Amazon! They are the perfect dressy bootie for fall and winter and look great with skinny jeans (ankle length or cuffed) or leggings. 

What do you think about pattern mixing?

  1. Don't know that I'm brave enough for pattern mixing myself, but I love this outfit on you! So beautiful, right down to the boots.

  2. I love the combo, it works so well because the stripes are neutral.

  3. Love the mix of patterns you put together. I wouldn't have guessed that your scarf is so budget-friendly, either. Nice find! And I love those ankle boots! They look like they're perfect for fall.

    1. Thank you!! I love how budget friendly the scarf is!

  4. Cute look! Love the burgundy colors and the scarf!

  5. Love the scarf! I am working on a blanket scarf post. :-) The pattern mixing is fun too.

  6. Ooops, this isn't the blanket scarf - I loaded 2 of your posts at once. :-) But I love this scarf too!
