Outfit: Men’s Pattern Mixing

Playful Prints

Maybe the heat’s just getting to me, but I’m kinda obsessed with all the patterns going on in this outfit! Although I usually like to stick with one bold print, I took a risk here and paired some of my favorite new pieces together in a playful summer look. I think the reason this still works is because all the prints are unique and have different scales. The micro-print shirt and subtle sailboat print balance each other out and the reds in the geometric pattern on the shoes play up some of the red in the shirt to tie the whole outfit together. How do you feel about pattern mixing in your clothing?

I wear a lot of plaid, it's sort of a staple in my closet. I was wondering, what other prints you think go well with it?

MANIMAL PRINT goes with anything!

But seriously, you’re best bet is to pair it with something solid to avoid looking too busy. If you really wanna pattern mix try a small print like polka dots - but I’d probably have to see the exact shirt you’re talking about before I can say for sure.
