How To Mix Patterns In Your Custom Suit Collection
If you create a wardrobe that is comprised completely of solid colors, you have created a pretty boring wardrobe. Part of what will set your wardrobe a part from those of others is your ability to mix colors and patterns effectively. One of the benefits of working with a custom tailor is that you will have a well trained partner in your quest for style perfection. Even if you are not personally comfortable mixing colors and partners who will have a qualified professional along the way to help you make those all important style decisions. There are a couple of important steps that must be considered as you begin the process of building your versatile wardrobe. You must first develop a color palette and a pattern scale. Once you have identified those elements, you can then begin to mix those patterns effectively.
Develop a Color Palette
Begin the process of mixing patterns in your custom suit collection by developing the color palette that you will begin working with. Certain color combinations are always in style and are a wise investment in terms of selecting patterns for your wardrobe. Black and white patterns are present on the red carpet year after year, and are always a wise investment when it comes to choosing a pattern combination. Another classic pattern combination that repeats year after year is the combination of black and red. When choosing the patterns that you will add to your collection choose patterns that will stand the test of time.
Develop a Pattern Scale
When you are mixing patterns in your wardrobe, there must be a common denominator with the pattern. One of those common denominators is color and the other combination is the scale of the pattern in your custom wardrobe. Based on your frame you must choose whether or not you are more comfortable in a large scale pattern or in a smaller scale pattern. If you have a petite frame then the pattern that will look the best on you is a small scale pattern. If the pattern is too large, then it will ultimately overwhelm your frame. On the other hand if you have a larger frame, then a smaller pattern will look out
Learn to Mix Effectively
The final step in your journey to learn to mix patterns is to work in conjunction with your custom tailor to test and try different combinations of patterns in order to determine which combination you are most comfortable wearing. Even if a pattern is technically considered in style, if you are not comfortable wearing it then it is still not a wise investment. If you are not comfortable then you will never wear the garment and it becomes a waste of money.
A wardrobe is something to have fun with an experiment with. As part of your style journey, experiment with color and pattern along the way. At the end of the day, you are in charge of your own fashion destiny.
