Aussie Curves – Pattern Clash

It has been a long time since I did an Aussie Curves post, but I’m back!

This week’s theme is Pattern Clash. I don’t tend to own a lot of patterns. I shy away from them as I see them as too ‘out there’ for me, most of the time. If I do buy patterns, it is because they are fairly subtle, or are within the stripes/polka dots style of pattern, nothing too major.

Now, pattern clashing is meant to be a huge trend this winter. And one tip I have picked up is that the best way to clash is to keep with the same colour palette.


I chose this skater dress as my main pattern, then pulled the black from the lace design to pair with the striped cardigan. When I first saw this dress it was one of those must-have-now pieces. At the time I was obsessed with everything lace (I still kind of am). Although living in Sydney I found the thick fabric a bit too warm, even for winter there, but it shall prove itself now I am in Wellington.

I kept everything else fairly neutral. Although I did wear a pair of my wet-look leggings to add a bit of spunk, which also extends to the lace-up boots and spiked belt to pull my waist in.




Unfortunately I seem to have reverted back to my awkward faces and poses in my absence from blogging. I also need to hunt around for a new photo wall. I don’t think this one is going to cut it.


Dress: City Chic, old stock (They constantly have skater dresses in various patterns. Currently I’m lusting after this one.)
Cardigan: Club S from ASOS. No longer available, bought on sale.
Leggings: Inspire from ASOS. Still available here.
Belt: Autograph. Still available here.
Boots: Ziera. Still available here.

  1. The lace design on that dress is so beautiful – nice choice. I look forward to more photos with your pretty face in it! 🙂

  2. Thanks Kobi! I need to break my habit of pulling funny faces when I have my picture taken. It results in a lot of awkward photos. Haha.

  3. Thanks Natalie, Kat and Ness! I was a bit dubious about clashing patterns at first, but now I really quite like it. I might have to do it more! Haha.
