Red, Plaid & Blue

The key to being on-trend right now is in the mixing of patterns and clashing of colors. It's easier than you might think! When mixing a pattern, just make sure the pieces share at least one common color. Both my tee and blouse have red in them and the blouse and the herringbone pants both have grays. 

When color clashing, just throw in an unexpected pop of color with your accessories. For this outfit I chose teal pumps. But you can throw in a purse or chunky jewelry in opposing colors. The trick is to make sure nothing "hurts" the eye. 

Despite my outfit not being matchy, matchy, it still works because everything seemingly blends together in the eye of the beholder. But you know what the real trick is? Check yourself in a full-length mirror before leaving the house. If what you see is "stressful", change! Quickly!

Have a great weekend everyone!
