The change of seasons always offers an opportunity to shake things up, and if you’re like us, you prefer to shake things up in small, low-risk ways, such as trying a new cocktail or swearing off Facebook for a week, because what’s the worst that can happen?  Exactly. 

So this summer shake things up and stay on trend by mixing your patterns. Florals can be paired with stripes, stripes with polka dots, and florals with plaids. Honestly, the possibilities are as limitless as your imagination.

Here’s a summery mix of polka dots, stripes and lace.

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money (which we rarely do), thrift shop a few fun items to mix. If you come up with something fabulous, send us a photo to post. We’d love to see how you mix it up!

Other trends for the summer include white denim, embellished mules and wrap dresses. Check out the collection below to get an idea of what’s hot for the coming months:
