I am not one for New Year's Resolutions, in fact I don't think I've really made one in a couple of years. However, I find nothing wrong with some fashion resolutions. For the month of January, I will be adding some "I Resolve To..." posts about how I want to fancy up my wardrobe for 2014. The first on the list:
I Resolve To...
Mixing prints is so fun and so easy. My mom has this idea that there are still rules in fashion, and I keep trying to tell her that all rules have gone out the window. There is so much freedom now when it comes to how you dress. For mixing patterns, I find that there are 3 simple rules:
1. Make sure you have at least one repeating color in each item of your outfit. (For example: black stripes with a leopard clutch or shoes).
2. Combine loose patterns with classic/structured patterns. (For example: leopard and polka dots with stripes and plaid).
3. Blend small designs with larger designs (For example: small gingham with large bold stripes).
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...and I plan on carrying this new trend throughout the year of 2014!!
