Fashion Inspiration: Patterns & Textures

Today marks the second installment of my fashion inspiration posts. I chose to touch on the mixing of patterns and textures this month. I really feel like summer is about having fun, mixing patterns, trying new textures, just feeling out the waters around you, and trying something new, fun, & exciting.

Aside from having gorgeous photographs, these beautiful ladies below are brilliant at meshing different patterns & textures, and I just feel so inspired by their ability to do so.

    I also love texture and pattern mixing, and when integrating bright colors, is very appropos for summer! That said, I’m not all that great at it, and whenever I try, the patterns end up looking too busy; so I stick to my basic solids. =) These gals you’ve pictured here, though, are very inspirational!

    Gorgeous pictures. I always love seeing examples of mixing prints and textures and colors. I’ve never been very good at that, as I was raised to be very matchy-matchy.
