Gingham, bright florals, and basket purses are the epitome of summer to me, and this outfit just happens to include all three! All these items are vintage finds that I have had for years and will probably still wear for years to come. Gingham is basically a neutral to me (especially when it's black and white) and I love to mix it with different prints and bright colors. When mixing prints, I always pay attention to scale: the gingham is a very large, chunky geometric print and the floral is small and dainty so the two can work together instead of competing with each other. I love this guide from Who What Wear with plenty of tips and pattern-mixing inspiration. This site also has a great collection of pattern-mixing outfit ideas. Just remember as long as YOU love your outfit and wear it with confidence, no one will question if you are truly "matching" or not!
