While I love the idea of mixing patterns and have done it from time to time, I am still a big fan of sticking to one pattern and letting it stand out on its own.
On Friday, I wore a bold black and white chevron top and in order to not take away from it, I wore it with simple black shorts and strappy wedges. Actually this "shirt" is really this dress (first mentioned here). As you might already know, I have a thing for finding convertible styles! Two for one is always better, right??
Then on Saturday, I did the opposite. I wore my new J. Crew yellow striped shorts with a very basic white sweater and gold accessories. Yellow pops on its own but by keeping everything else basic, they really got a chance to stand out. (And not because my legs got totally sunburned that day...)

Are you a pattern mixer or do you like to keep it simple and focus on one pattern at a time?
