How to Pattern Mix With Scarves

This has been a good year for scarves.

They were big all through the warmer months, and now that it's their prime time they're still showing up strong in all of the stores. And why not!? They're comfortable, cute, warm and a great way to add a splash of color/pattern to any outfit.

Here are three examples of how I used them to pattern mix...

Stripes & Multi-Colored Stripes
When the weather finally wakes up and realizes it's October, I'll put the light scarves away, but until then thin ones like this are the perfect pattern echo and splash of color.

Stripes & Polka Dots
This is a fun way to mix patterns. Do it with both being black and white, or like this combo pairing purple with tan. It works best when one color is echoed in both patterns like the black dots ans stripes. Bust out of your comfort zone and give this pattern mash up a try.

Red & Leather
This isn't a "pattern mix" per-say, but it is a good idea to add a dark red scarf like this to an all black outfit. And the leather jacket adds just the right kind of varied texture to the whole thing so that you don't look like you're going to rob a bank.
