NZ Style Curvettes - Pattern Clash

Pattern clash! Not really a fave outfit type of mine but after all it is called a fashion challenge!

I was going to take the easy way out and wear this dress I call my 'Pattern Clash dress' because the pattern on it is floral and plaid. However, I felt that meant I wasn't taking up the challenge properly...

So I did some Pinterest research and read some tips on how to pattern clash like a pro and decided on Stripes & dots as they always seem to go.

And I found the following Mixing Prints chart useful aswell!

However I came across a wee problem: I don't own any polka dot items of clothing! Though I easily came to a decision that this top was close enough to polka dots...How do you pattern clash?

Outfit details: 
• Pattern Clash dress || City Chic || $50 off a Facebook group
• Black Open toe Mary Jane heels || Rivers || $15

• Tee || Virtuelle || Opshopped for $4 from a UnitingCare Op Shop
• Striped Skirt (dress folded down) || City Chic || A 'hand-me-down' from a bestie!
• Heels || Target || Opshopped for $3 

Feel free to follow me on Pinterest @charlenegirl

Next weeks challenge theme: Tee!
