Patterns on clothing and accessories can be a great way to add personality and style to your outfits. I’m referring to patterns like plaid, stripes, paisley, floral designs, polka dots, etc.
Do you know how to select a pattern that gives off your best, that is in harmony with you and maximizes your features?

I hope this blog post inspires you to wear your authenticity!
