Styling Southwestern Patterns

November 9, 2023

I’m loving southwestern patterns right now. I see so many fabulous coats and cardigan sweaters with cool graphics that have a southwest and/or an Aztec vibe to them.

Here I styled my gray and blush patterned coat with a gray leopard print sweater and snake patterned boots.  It sounds awfully busy, I know, but I think it totally works because the color palette is so soft. What do you think?


 Shop This Look:

Lynn and I headed out to Tram Cream Coffee before school one day.  I tried Egg Cream Coffee for the first time, and it’s absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this Vietnamese treat! Though I also need to add in a word of caution, sip slowly! Vietnamese coffee is STRONG!

I’m wearing an Avec Les Filles coat (a fab gift from Lynn, but the exact coat is no longer available), an Amazon basics sweater, Chico’s bootleg jeans, and my snake booties.  Lynn and I are also wearing matching Kendra Scott Ella Pave Twist Hoop Earrings.  I’m wearing silver and Lynn is wearing the gold.  They are the perfect hoops, with just enough bling to make them extra special.

How pretty is Lynn’s deep pink Clip Dot Sleeve Sweater?  It’s now on sale! 

Here are some of my favorite southwestern vibe pieces that are available right now.  You can always style them with solids or try some print mixing like I did here. If you are print mixing, make sure you keep the tones in the same family. Separates don’t need to match, but just need to go together!

I just had to add in that cute dog sweater!  Hee!

Also on the blog lately ICYMI, styling fall textures and my fall picks.
