My 4-year-old mixes patterns like a pro. In fact, she is much better at mixing patterns than I am. She put together this outfit with absolutely no input from me.
In this ensemble, she has managed to look perfectly put together in polka dots, stripes, and a floral pattern. One of the secrets to making patterns work together is choosing complimentary hues. Here her shirt works with her boots and her shrunken sweater coordinates with her leggings.
As far as looking good in mixed patterns, you might have to be 4 years-old (or 4 years-old at heart) because I suspect I could wear this exact same outfit in my size and look a little silly.
Do you mix patterns like a pro or do you leave it to 4 year-olds?
