Often I wear a lot of plain clothing and snazz it up with accessories and shoes, but sometimes I like to mix up patterns and textures. I believe the key to mixing patterns is the harmony in colors and patterns. For instance, I'm wearing my X-Ray Doll Parts dress (which can be seen here and here) over a pair of black leggings and I added the grey leopard vest-I consider animal prints a neutral in this case. Since the grey leopard vest has such a small pattern it's not competing with the larger X-Ray print and the grey is a compliment to the nice soft texture of the dress, along with the color palette of black and white.
I choose the black stretch belt to not only break up the pattern on the dress, but gives the dress a nice shape and gives my waist a little cinch. Oh yes, I truly love belts! I am wearing black leggings, because I like that it ties the black hair scarf and black belt all together. I kept all of my accessories simple with silver which also ties into the studs on my creepers. My poor beat up creepers.
Just a little insight into the way that I dress, no fashion rules over here, I just like the aesthetics. *Wink*
Do you wear patterns? If so, do you like to mix and match?
