We’ve learned this winter that layering is important. Just because it’s important, doesn’t mean it has to be boring. The only rule—not that there are any—to mixing patterns is to keep one semi-neutral. In this instance, the navy and white stripes. The neutral balance will maintain order and fend off chaos; forcing those that cross your path to correctly acknowledge you as The Wearer and not the ‘wearee’ of your ensemble. Further, a balancing neutral would establish the difference between pattern clashing like a listless, albeit, homeless wanderer with zero outfit choices and you; the fearless pioneer who consciously clashed their patterns. Clash on my friend, clash on.
