playful patterns

pattern mixing is a difficult endeavor, and i’ve struck out a few more times than i’m willing to admit trying to make it work getting dressed in the morning. over time, i’ve found that repeating colors and pattern themes makes styling a mixed-up outfit a much more manageable task. 

cute litte flower posts/ gorgeous statement necklace by J. Crew/ my obsession with sparkling sequin tees continues/ Kate Spade in bright mint/ DVF embroidered silk pants (although i am totally coveting these Madewell jeans which would make this look much more casual)/golden penny loafers complete the outfit

here, i repeated the floral pattern of the pants in both the necklace and earrings, enhanced the orange detail in the necklace with bright pop earrings, heightened the shimmer effect of the sequin shirt with gold accents on the necklace and shoes.  

what are some techniques you use to create fun and playful pattern mixing without overwhelming your image?
