Staying Power | Pattern Mix

One trend that appears to have some serious staying power this spring is the playful look of mixing bold, colorful and graphic patterns. Spring 2011 has presented us with some stand out patterns and the best way to wear them is together. The mixed media trend has been making its way onto the fashion radar for a few seasons now but Spring 2011 will be its moment to shine.
Known for her range of patterns, Diane Von Furstenberg showed nearly every look with a pattern mix. Other designers that featured this trend were Rachel Coney, Peter Som, Karen Walker and Chris Benz.
The key to make this trend work to your advantage is to layer a patterns by keeping similar complementary color stories in mind. Make sure you aren't head to toe in patterns, add a belt or roll a sleeve to break it up.
