Summer is in hot approach, which means time to shed the jumpers and winter coats in favour of more appropriate attire. But with these changing seasons, some people can get a little too excited and bring out all sorts of different threads, most of which should stay in the dress up box all year round. Yes, this week I'm about patterns and the ones you should wear, ones you may be able to get away with, and what should have just been burned on the bonfire last week.

Patterns have always been risky business as there is a fine line between looking stylish, and looking like you're off to a Hawaiian luau or a Where's Wally convention... But in saying all this, there are some patterns you can get away with, and with just a little bit of effort can stop you from looking like a spokesperson for monochrome weekly.


The Good (STRIPES)

In terms of patterns I would have to say that stripes are my favourite. However, that doesn't mean you should run out and buy striped pants, tops, hats and everything in between because to be honest, you'll just look like a fucking prison inmate. But in saying this, they probably are the most versatile of patterns, going with pretty much any item of clothing, in any colour. Quite frankly, so long as they aren't rainbow or something like that, you can't go wrong with stripes which is why there really isn't much to say about them.



Good...                                          Not so good.


The Bad (FLORAL)

Now this is a touchy subject, because not all hope is lost with this pattern. For me personally, I don't particularly like floral t-shirts but I think that is more to do with my personal style. I'm all for floral shorts, especially with a standard tee, but that's about as far into the floral world as I dare to venture. I think floral is definitely a seasonal pattern and can work well in the summer months. However, while I do like some floral shorts, I just cannot with floral shirts. They're too much for me and they mean that the rest of your outfit has to be completely plain to avoid looking like a damn rainforest. Honestly though, I don't dislike floral clothing – I do own some floral shorts and a floral button up shirt – but I still think some caution needs to be taken with this pattern as it's easy to become very uncool, very fast.

              This is okay...                     This is seriously not okay.


The Ugly (CAMO)

Honestly, the scale doesn't go far enough to correctly illustrate my hatred towards camo print. Unless you have recently enlisted in the army, there is no excuse. I guess I find it sort of ironic how camouflage clothing, which is meant to help you blend into the background, stands out to me as my most disliked pattern by far. With all this being said, there is still a very (I repeat: very!) small percentage of people who can pull off camo, but this is rare and I cannot encourage people to go out looking for a new army jacket to add to their collection... It's just so hard to pull off camo as there are hardly any ways to make the print look semi-normal (semi as in you still look like you've just come back from paintball).



This is just so wrong.


That's it for this week.

Next week I dive deeper into summer clothing for anyone off to summer festivals, informing you what not to wear unless you want to pair that outfit with a paper bag so people don't recognise you.

Stay classy San Diego,
