Hello Gorgeous! Today I’m sharing with you ladies a pattern this is overlooked and rarely talked about during the fall season. But, we are totally going to let this pattern shine today. During the fall and winter seasons flannel and plaid get all the attention! I totally understand why. They are classic, chic, you can wear them for any occasion, and easily transition from day to night (so yeah, these patterns totally rock!).
Today we are going to look past the plaid and flannel prints and focus on a pattern I know you will love. Plus, I’m sharing 3 reasons why you’ll totally want to rock this pattern this season.
Are you ready to find out the pattern I’m talking about?! Keep reading to find out!
THE PATCHWORK PRINT
The patchwork print is an amazing alternative to wearing plaid or flannel this season! There are some days when you just don’t feel like reaching for your trusted flannel but still want to exude major fall vibes! Que the patchwork print!
This print, which is on the jacket I am wearing today, gives off major fall vibes but in a totally unique way! I would consider this print to be mostly a daytime print, but you can totally wear this print for night with some sparkly baubles. The reason why this print works so well for fall is because it appears like you are wrapped up in a cozy blanket on the couch, when in reality you are rocking a uber cute patchwork item that is sure to get you compliments all day long!
Oh, and wearing a patchwork print is a modern take on color blocking which I know we all love to do from time to time! Basically, you can’t go wrong during the fall season if you’re wearing this print!
Now that you have an awesome alternative to flannel or plaid here’s how to style this outfit!
Styling this print is super easy for day because it’s entirely up to your personal style! I highly recommend wearing patchwork prints as layering pieces such as sweaters, cardigans, coats, and even handbags. The reason for this is because these layers may not be the focal point of your outfit, but gives your outfit some fall glam, plus breaks up your look a bit!
In today’s look I am wearing all neutrals except for my jacket, which I wanted to be the piece that catches peoples attention!
To wear this print for night I highly recommend using black as the “base” of your outfit. What I mean by this is to have almost all of your outfit black and then incorporate your patchwork print. The reason why you want to do this is because black is always a good idea for nighttime looks and patchwork prints tend to be more on the colorful side. Your chic black items will help to counter all the color in your patchwork print to create one amazing night look!
Since work is the most professional setting of the three I recommend using this print only on your structured items. The structured items I am referring to are handbags, shoes, and blazers/coats. The reason you want to do this is because your structured pieces already look very professional and work appropriate. If you were to wear a blouse that is more flowy and then add a bold print this may not appear as professional as wearing a pair of pointed heels.
You can lighten up your more structured pieces with this print and not take away from the professionalism of the item!
Thank you SO much for stopping by Blush & Camo and I’m sending you so much love!
