Pattern Mixing: Plaid and Stripes and Polka Dots


On Black Friday, I bought two plaid tops at Eclipse. I showed the lumberjack plaid (made in Canada) last month and this one is black and white with some pattern mixing. Love how it has stripes added to the sleeves, so I decided to pair it with my polka dot leggings for a super fun look! I figure with black and white, you can’t go wrong.

Besides, I’m old enough to wear what I want. My mother taught me not to mix prints and patterns. However, my daughter started mixing patterns when she was a toddler and I decided to let her make her own fashion choices. Since then, she has perfected the art of pattern mixing and I’m learning from her.

What do you say?

    Yes!! My Mama taught me the same! But I ignored her when I got to be an older teen! When they started making clothes with clashing patterns, she nearly fainted! lol
    Your’s looks great as always.
    I love the long cuffs!

  3. I have always loved black and white pattern missing and love how you have done it. I’ll have to go back and read your lumberjack plaid-the made in Canada sounds wonderful.

    Gee, Carmen, this is a very daring proposal. Stripes, squares and polka dots! But when you look at it carefully, it doesn’t seem that they contradict each other. The combination works for you and I can only say: a very nice and modern look. I love how your beret looks, you look gorgeous. Hearts also play their role, and complement the outfit perfectly. Although the most beautiful thing is always your smile, your eyes, your hair, your figure …

    These mix of patterns look wonderful on you. I think also as it matched the colour so well it goes well together. Carmen, we have February – Spring is coming – yay!

      Thanks so much! It’s a fun outfit. February 2 is Groundhog Day in North America and if the groundhog comes out and sees its shadow, it predicts 6 more weeks till spring. Haha! 🙂 I predict 2 more months of winter.
