Mixing Patterns and Fabrics

Howdy! I feel like it’s been forever since I made blogpost! I posted last month, but it feels like it’s been much longer. School has just been taking up a lot of my time, so it’s good to get to sit down and write a blogpost.

This is going to be a short little outfit post. My friend, Grace, took these pictures of me over Christmas break. It was pretty cold outside, so I bundled up with a lot of layers.


First, I put on a tight black turtleneck. Then I put a striped t-shirt on top and threw a plaid shirt over that. Last, I put on this heavy leather jacket for extra warmth. The jacket is a little big for me, so I rolled up the sleeves. The inside of the jacket is lined in a silky paisley pattern, so rolling up the sleeves revealed it. I also put on a pair of faux leather gloves so my hands wouldn’t freeze.

To continue my mix of fabrics, I went for some velvet maroon leggings. I don’t like how loose they are around my ankles, so I rolled them up a little. I really love these leggings. They’re so different from any other leggings I’ve ever had.


After rolling up my leggings, I needed something to keep my ankles warm. I decided on some black socks with tiny white snowflakes on them. Then I just put on some black boots to complete the look.


Once again, I kept my makeup pretty natural. I basically did my usual routine of filling in my eyebrows, putting on some concealer, and brushing on a few coats of mascara. I also added a little eyeliner. It might look like it’s just on one of my eyes in the picture below, but I swear it was on both!


I had a lot of fun playing with the different fabrics, textures, and patterns of this outfit. I feel like sometimes I’m scared to wear a very busy outfit because I’m scared it won’t match. But, I’ve found that focusing on one color palette makes it a lot easier to make an outfit look cohesive.


Well that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed this quick little blurb about my outfit. Thanks for stopping by! I hope I’ll see you in the next post!
