Pattern Clashing.

Deliberately clashing one color or pattern against another is something Vogue has been trying to convince me to do for about the last year or so. Being more about personal style than Fashion, I have mostly treated this advice with the raised eyebrow of suspicion.

But I also believe that fashion trickles down. It’s like trickle down economics or that monologue from Devil Wears Prada: everything eventually filters down from the runway into actual ready to wear into cheaper knock offs into something you find at Kohl’s.  So what one day Diane Kruger is wearing, making me think, “Do I love it or hate it? And does it really matter, because she is working it?”, I may eventually be wearing something extremely derivative of.

Unfortunately, this is not always a good thing.

I may also be giving this guy too much credit.

For those keeping score at home, that is a paisley shirt with printed shorts. NO.

For those keeping score at home, that is a paisley shirt with printed shorts. NO.

Now, there are two kind of options here. 1) He saw someone else wearing a bunch of patterns at once and thought, “Hey, I should try that!”

That or he is oblivious.

But I like to think the best of people, a ridiculous statement given that I’ve been snarking on here for over a year. But I don’t know which is my better option: stupidity or ignorance.

Ack, sorry for the delay!

    Also, the colour combo is an eyesore. Bright blue and khaki?
