When it comes to bringing two opposing patterns together, it’s essential they have one thing in common: color. Without a common thread between them, a look can go from well-intentioned to a big old mess. That’s why we’re showing you exactly how to pair plaid and stripes with this look. We fell in love with this off the shoulder statement top and it’s voluminous sleeves, and knew it would be a perfect companion to our race stripe skinny jeans. Not only does the dark denim mesh well with the blue in the top, but it also highlights the red threading throughout the shoulder area. To finish the look, we picked red block heels for a pop of color and a simple black handbag. Such a great transition outfit for fall.
Michael’s Styling Tip: Mixing patterns is easy when you keep your color palette consistent, and highlight one pop of color.
