Even though the fashion industry is constantly changing and releasing new fashion pieces, it is very easy to stick to what you know. Don’t get it wrong, finding your personal style and fashion does take time some time so it’s understandable that you stick to what you know. With that being said, you should know that switching things up from time to time can be amazing. So much so that you discover a whole new side of yourself. This is where playing with patterns and different textiles comes in. Patterns can be intimidating for anyone especially if you haven’t worn them before. That’s why these tips can be so helpful.

 

Incorporating patterns into your daily style can be quite daunting for a few reasons. Firstly, patterns tend to stick out more, and secondly, they can be a bit hard to rock but that doesn’t mean that it is impossible. With that said, if you haven’t ever added patterns into your style, you will be pleased to know that you can in fact rock them. When first selecting patterns you need to think of your body shape and type. You see, even though fashion has no boundaries, certain patterns go with certain body types.

You will want something that adds to your confidence instead of taking away from it. Next, you will want to go with patterns that aren’t too busy as a starter. This simply means going with more conventional patterns like lines, squares, circles, and even rectangles. Once you have started playing around with patterns and you feel comfortable in them, then you can start exploring even more. When shopping around you will find items that have some wild patterns that are also very stylish. It is important to remember that you can definitely rock any pattern you want, all you need to do is feel confident when wearing it.
