Tweed and Plaids

I buy and wear a lot of solids because of my have always thought they are more versatile. However, as I learn to mix patterns in more sophisticated ways, I’ve learned to relax my need to have things match exactly. Tweed fabric and plaid clothing are two easy patterns that mix well.

Because I’m so petite, I still fear mix and matching too much in case it overwhelms my frame. My approach is finding patterns in the same color palette so it gives the illusion of monochrome.

This vest was part of my last splurge at Modcloth, and I’ve paired it with old H&M trousers, and this yellow blouse that has been so many times (see here and here).
