Adore patterns even more with these brave, bold, beautiful combinations

Our vividly colourful alternative fashions are stunning worn with simple block colours. A plain black or white top with a pair of patterned harem pants or a vibrant hippie skirt is a wonderful thing, making the colours and designs sing out. But what about blending different patterns together into something extra-sumptuous and bold?

In a brave new world where chilly minimalist interiors have given way to warm, welcoming maximalism, it’s perfectly possible to take the trend and make it personal. Here are some stunning combinations of patterned alternative clothes that clash to perfection, giving you a stand-out look that’s just as hot for parties and special occasions as it is for festivals, everyday wear, and simply hanging around at home looking amazing.

Here are three tasty ideas for combining clothing that should clash – but actually look delicious.

Our extra long tiered silky skirt with a mandala print top

Take this gorgeous extra-long and floaty tiered skirt in cool silk-viscose. It flows around your legs in such a lovely way, and the deep navy background and golden-green patterns are sumptuous and exotic. Three tiers add even more interest and the slimline look it gives you is elegance itself. Add a plain black, white, navy, gold or olive green top and it looks wonderful. Add a broad belt for extra drama and definition if you like. But when you wear it with this deep green long sleeve full mandala print top it takes on a new dimension. And if you add this green open top with lace and appliqué over that, the look is simply awesome.

Flower print long flared trousers with a floral V neck top

These amazing flower print long flared trousers look great with a black top for drama, or you can pick out a top in any of the flower colours for a stylish, put-together look. We even have patterned tops with a similar print, which almost match so add to the fun. If you’d like to think even more creatively, add this floral print V neck long sleeve top with its beautiful vivid flower print, contrasting sleeves and cool raised V neck. Tuck it in with a big belt for a curvy silhouette or leave it loose over the flares for a simple, casual look.

A short tie dye dress with floral print leggings and an open tie dye top

This tie dye frill trim short dress is fantastic worn on its own. But you can take it to a different place with a pair of these lush floral print leggings underneath to add extra flower power to your day. We have more leggings styles to explore, too. Add this simply-styled tie dye frill open top to create a stand-out layered combination that makes your look completely unique. Love the clash!

That’s the beauty of our alternative fashions. They’re so versatile. You can keep things subtle and sophisticated, dialling the colours and patterns down by blending them with plain block colours. Or go creative with bold contrasts that make your heart sing and your spirit smile. This is our world: if it makes you feel happy, wear it!
