The Viva Guide to Pattern Clashing: How To Mix Patterns Like A Pro
Embrace the fun of multiple prints with our how-to for wearable pattern mixing
With all the fun prints and patterns we've spotted in upcoming collections, it seems a shame to wear them just one at a time. Polkadots and checks, painterly prints and vibrant florals can be mixed and matched in a way that's irreverent yet wearable.
Embrace the steadily lightening days and warming weather and have a little fun with brighter colours and eye catching prints. We promise there are ways to do it that won't look mis-matched, but rather playfully off-kilter.
