Mixing patterns

These are just a few examples of this fall’s eclectic trend. Never thought you could wear more than one printed piece? Where look how all our fashion no-no’s have been dashed this season.

Some fashion editors call this look “the bag lady look” (handbag editors that is) but in my opinion “eclectic” sounds more flattering.

It’s all about mixing different colors, patterns, fabrics creating a mind-boggling appearance. Stripes, plaid, animal prints and polka dots are designers’ favorites and shoes play a vital role in this “game”. I’ll be searching and showing here in future posts other eclectic looks, mixes of fabrics and colors.
