Stripes + Frills + Bows = Pattern Power

With the Fashion Weeks of the world dominating the spotlight at the moment, I thought it would be a little inspiring to set a trend of my own for the summer. Stylists, designers and anyone in the fashion industry are always saying how the key to the perfect outfit is not to mix too many patterns together or else they will clash and look clumsy together. Well. I think I've created a look that does just that without it looking disastrous in anyway and rather unique but simple at the same time. A great thing about this look is that almost every piece is under £10, proving that the Jan/Feb sales weren't as lousy as everyone thought they were!
A Stripey shirt, a Frilly skirt and Bow tights..I think I've managed to make it work. What do you think?
