Clashing patterns are turning into a huge style trend this spring: from Dolce &Gabbana’s Milan Fashion Week show to Irregular Choice shoes, this fun “mix ‘n’ match” style with a vintage feel sets a perfect tone for the season.
This is a great style to play around with, because you probably don’t have to buy any new clothing to make it work! Most of us have patterned scarves, blouses, and handbags sitting around, not being used because the color or pattern doesn’t go with our current wardrobe. It’s time to get them back out! If you’re one of those lucky ones who don’t have a bunch of unused patterned accessories lying around the house, charity shops/thrift stores are full of good finds.
I’ve put together a few suggestions for ways you could make this trend work for you, because, let’s face it, we probably don’t want to look like we just stepped off the catwalk!

I had so much fun “shopping” for these outfits! I absolutely love this style trend and am currently working on making a collection of jewellery based on it- more on that in my next post :)
What do you think of wearing clashing patterns?
Do you have any more suggestions for making this trend work all of us who will never set foot on a catwalk? I’d love to know what you think.
