Black & White Pattern MIxing- Trend for Fall

Posted on: August 16, 2015

One of the Trends for Fall is Black and White Pattern Mixed Prints

Since I am not about to run out and find a new piece that is a mixed print,

I got to thinking why not pair together black and white prints already in our closets 

for pattern mixing?

Of course I turned to Pinterest and found a few examples to share 

This one show cases, stripes, plaid and herringbone prints.  

Graphics on graphics? Done. Mix two bold black-and-white prints for double the impact.

Love Her Outfit! Star Looks to Steal | GWEN STEFANI | We know, we know: So many of the pop star's looks are "For Gwen Only." But we think you can translate this look into your own life using some key elements of her patterned pants/embellished top formula: Stick to the same color palette (in this case, black and white). Pay attention to proportions (she teams voluminous pants with a fitted top). And when all else fails, add a killer red lip and a little swagger.

Any prints work well and this pop of color with the shoes can be done with any option.

I own quite a few black and white print options Including: 

Polka Dots

Stripes

Florals

Hounds-tooth

Zebra

 Gingham

Plaid 

and Graphic Prints

 I look forward to combining them  to create interesting looks this Fall/Winter Season.   

Dear Readers, Do you like the idea of black and white print pattern mixing?  

Feeling Inspired?  

I keep picturing options with things in my closet and am happy that this is exactly what I want to create by 

Not Shopping for a year ,  except for Accessories after September 8th, my 50th birthday!

I generally do not like the mixing of patterns but somehow, in the black and white, it looks great. Especially stripes and geometrical shapes, more than floral. I like your idea of not shopping for a year. I look forward to your new outfits that you create.

Dorothy, I hope you give pattern mixing a try in the black and white. I hope I can stick to no shopping for a Year!
