the artful mismatch 101

mismatching for dummies:
1. no more than two pieces mismatched
2. DO mismatch patterns (plaid with stripes, stripes with polka dots, plaid with polka dots etc)
3. for beginners: create a frame for the mismatched pieces i.e. outwear in solids
4. unless you're over 1,78, keep solid colors on the legs. Makes them look longer (we prefer black or charcoal)
5. match the bag to the skirt or trousers
