5 Simple Rules for Mixing and Matching Patterns for Kids

5 Simple Rules for Mixing and Matching Patterns for Kids | Bianca Dottin

Happy Monday! Today, I wanted to share a super fun fall look that Tatiana picked out with a little help from me. If your kid is anything like mine, then their personality shines through their style. We were shopping one day in Carter’s and she just had to have this flutter sleeve top and skirt that we saw. It really stood out to her. We picked up a few other pieces that she loved too.

Mixing and matching patterns for kids is tough though especially if your child loves bold color and conflicting patterns. For this look we chose to mix stripes, a sunflower printed skirt, and polka dots. This works because the patterns are all different but compliment each other so well. Here’s a few tips to keep in mind the next time you’re styling looks with mixing and matching patterns for kids.

  1. Use different types of patterns.
  2. Choose 1 or 2 colors as the base to tie everything together.
  3. Use different size patterns so that things don’t look too busy.
  4. Pair patterns with solids.
  5. Don’t be afraid to be bold.

    Those shoes are so cute. I am terrible when it comes to mixing patterns. I am so glad I have a boy who is a toddler at the moment. I know when he gets older he will probably explore in multiple patterns but right now just basic colors lol. She is so cute.

    Back in the day, you had to color coordinate. Now I think we have moved to mix match colors and mixing various prints. Who doesn’t love stripes and polka dots.

    Your daughter is too cute! Love the outfit! We are getting more into mixing patterns, and I think Emma is really loving it! This year I am letting her help out in this department and she is doing pretty good so far!

    This is a really cute look. I love the sleeves on her shirt. I’ve been shopping the dramatic sleeve trend.

    She is too adorable. I started mixing patterns with my kids a few years ago. I figured if it looked too crazy, they’d just think the kid dressed themselves! LOL

    She looks like she loves what she’s wearing. I need to be more adventurous with my patterns. I wear way too many salads.
