Posted by collarsandcuffs on June 5th, 2015
When it comes to dressing up for an occasion, mixing the right patterns is the key to looking good. Pattern mixing is an ‘art’ that is rarely executed well, leading to fashion disasters. In this guide by Collars & Cuffs-the leading bespoke tailors in Dubai, we are going to read about-how to mix patterns and look good.
Keep the colors in mind when mixing patterns
While mixing patterns, it’s always good to use various hues of one main color. It will create a subtle and stylish look, while still showing your fashionable side. This rule especially works better if you are trying to mix different patterns, such as checks, stripes, plaids, dots, houndstooth, herringbone etc.
Mixing same patterns smartly
Same patterns can be mixed together, but just keep one simple thing in mind-the width and size of the patterns should be different. For example, you can wear a large check shirt with a narrow check tie. It is a good way to add a hint of glamour into an old traditional look, suggest Collars & Cuffs’ best tailors in Dubai.
Never use the same sized patterns head to toe
Wearing the same pattern in same size and width, head to toe is a big fashion disaster. If you do plan to do so, then wear it in different colors.
Wear solid colors with patterns
If you are a beginner at mixing patterns, it’s always good to start with mixing solid colors with patterns. You can have a shirt or suit in solid color and wear a patterned tie or pocket square with it, to add a hint of glamour to your traditional attire.
Mixing more than two patterns
You can try mixing two same patterns with one different pattern. For example one can pair large check suit with small check shirt and a large striped tie. Just keep in mind one simple rule-‘the two same patterns should be different in size’. Also, the clothing closest to your body should have smallest pattern and from there you can try mixing more interesting and bold patterns.
