WIW: bold color pattern mixing

Here's my "kitchen-sink-lite" pattern mixing fun.  I've liked bright and bold colors recently, so this combo made me happy even if it's not the most put-together look.

Cobalt cords, bright stripes sweater with bold black/white zig zag cardigan.  Cardigan is bookended with black/white printed shoes.

#2 is how I intended to wear it
#1 is how I actually wore it, because I was chilly and liked the print combo of the black and white zig zag over the bold stripes.

It's not my favorite outfit ever, but it was comfy and cheery, and that's good enough at the moment :)

    I like this combination very much, especially #1. You could even add another pattern of bright color.

    I like #1 best. I think the outfit looks more intentional with the third piece.

    I like!  I would wear the boots in #2 though since I think they make it look more refined, even with the bold colors.  BTW, I'm really liking your hair in these photos.

    You nailed it in #1. VERY on trend.

    Truthfully I think I like it without the jacket better. I love the colorful stripes on you!

    I like this because of the expected boldness of the pattern. It is not mainstream.

    Your choice is unique.

    Agreeing with shevia, I prefer #2 too. The colours are fantastic on you.
