Opposites attract.

Mixing patterns is seriously an art form.

People can try to give the "how to" run down all they want.

It will never work.

Sure, there are tips...

Contrasting patterns usually work best. Stripes with florals. The ornate with the symmetrical.

The point is, it isn't cookie cutter.

Some people can't even get down with it.

However, I certainly can.

I want to play outside the playground. I want to make two things that shouldn't work TOTALLY WORK.

So, my pattern mixing "how to" is to simply go for it. When it works, you will see it - and you will know.

And if you don't... then you probably can't pull it off anyway.

Kiss. Kiss.
