Aria is back and better than ever! We have been waiting weeks for her return and our favorite outfit of the episode did not disappoint. We are obsessed with her ability to mix and match patterns. The stripes with the leopard print are total opposites in some ways and the perfect compliment in others. Mixing patterns and prints is not an easy trend to define because there are few rules or guidelines to follow. If you want to make this look work for you, go bold, take chances but just don’t make your patterns too similar. Making sure the prints are different enough will create a strong contrast. This way your outfit will look like a choice rather than a mistake. If you want to slowly wade into this look, try some tried and true combinations. Pairing floral prints with stripes is a great unexpected pairing that works. Or if you want an even easier option, try leather and lace in the same color. So set outside your box and put together your best Aria combination.
