Aussie Curves 3.0 - Pattern Clash

Pattern clashing is not my favourite thing to do... Actually I can't stand it, well on me at least. I like it on some people, on some occasions but struggle to bring myself to do it. I even found heaps of inspiration of pattern clashing outfits But couldn't figure out an outfit that I was happy with...


...until I decided to do spots or stripes. All the pattern clash outfits I liked (pictured above) had spots or stripes so I thought I would probably need to have one of these in my outfit.


:: The Story ::
Skip forward to today getting ready for work... I was looking for something cool to wear in 36 degree (celcius) heat and decided on a striped Autograph crop. Then I remembered I had only thrifted a striped bolero the previous day and contemplated stripes on stripes.

If the stripes are different sizes does that count as different patterns? And therefore, does thick stripes with thinner stripes count as pattern clash? 

According to me, Yes.



Outfit Details
Oversized crop || Autograph || Thifted for $2.50
Striped bolero || No label || Thrifted for $4
Dark denim leggings || My Size || Thrifted for $2
Zigzag striped earrings || Melissa Urquhart Jewellery || Thrifted for $3 


Then just to top off the clashing of the stripes I added some cute zigzag ones!
Thats 3 different stripes so that totally counts... Well that's my story and I'm sticking with it!!


Oh and check out this pattern clashing outfit (below) that I found at work! (I work at an op shop) Paisly and leopard print!! If it was my size I totally would've bought it just for this challenge!! Haha

  1. Yes, 2 types (or 3 including the earrings) totally counts and I reckon it looks rad, that dress on the other hand that mixes paisley and animal print...ughhh, that is like my 2 least favourite prints so that is what I deem a 'nightmare dress'. HA! :D x

    2. Me too! I abhor paisley, tribal, and animal print!

      But I do have animal-print sandals (out of necessity - they were on sale and it's summer and I'm a bum! - defensive much? :P)

      Sorry for trolling your conversation. ;)

      Seriously envious of your op shop finds! The op shops near my place are expensive!

      I have heaps of good op shop bargains but it takes a bit to find the good stuff. Be patient and keep op shopping and you'll find the good stuff'!
