HARMONY IN MISMATCHING TRENDS

Yesterday's taboo is today's trend...... A few years ago, it would have been frowned upon if you wore two different prints at the same time, and it was generally perceived as a mismatch. That very taboo has now become a trend much liked by myself, although it took a while to get use to slipping into the idea. If you are in doubt, the best way to do it, is by carefully laying out your outfit on a flat surface, and using your discretion, judging it from different viewpoints. Some prints still clash with a vengeance, while others just seem to blend together like a rainbow's colours gently fusing into one another. Stripes seem to blend in with any other print as long as it is not a patent clash of stripes requiring the viewer to wear spectacles to deflect the print! Animal print also seems to work well with stripes. The match below undermines all rules, but considering the fact that "trends' make otherwise mismatched ideas, agreeable, I decided to combine the lace print pants and striped jacket. In my view, this is a great harmonious mismatch! One should also not be afraid to introduce a third colour to break up the monotony of your palette. Come on girls, experiment to find your perfect match!
