I spent my entire childhood and teenage years in the beautiful city of Casablanca, Morocco. 13 years ago, my parents offered my sister and I greater opportunities, and relocated us to the multicultural city of Montreal.
Mixing patterns in outfits, is a great way to add character, personal touch from combining colors, textures and different materials. Accessories come into a play too when not exaggerated of course. Need to keep in mind that the various colors, and patterns don’t need “to match” each other, they just need to “go together.”
But of course, they are few guidelines to follow if you want to avoid having uncoordinated looks. I have selected a variety of outfits that represents this theme.
Tropical look: mix and match floral co-ords outfit, pairing a lightweight bomber jacket with a mid-length skirt to elongate the silhouette. Bottom skirt not too busy in patterns comparing to the top piece. Fashionistas can pull off the look when attending a Fashion event. Ideal for cocktail themed parties, happy Hour nights…
So much to say: very stylish and timeless outfit. Loving the mix of denim shorts and this organza textured blouse. The color palette is to die for. As accessories, we have a big chunky necklace and a vintage green clutch. Can be worn to dinner dates, summer nights, very suitable to Fashion weeks’ events as well.
The classic tribal: pairing a pencil skirt with Aztec and geometrical prints, a tie knot t-shirt for an effortless touch. Then adding a studded blazer in very soft Tiffany blue. We have a mix of colors, patterns and textures. From office day to date night, just tie that T-shirt; the look is changed.
Red flamboyant caftan: we have a vintage piece, well worked with this silky material as a base, embellished with beads and sequins. Every little detail counts in this piece of art. Lastly was paired with pleather pants to complete the look. This outfit is suitable for any festive occasions.
