The runway: Rodarte
The look: One of the more daring trends for spring, designers create a mish-mash of various textures and patterns to generate collectively distinctive pieces. By keeping an outfit within a specific color palette, the contrasting patterns work together to give off an avant-garde air of sophistication.
Why it works: Although newbie fashionistas might hesitate to try this look, combining pieces that would appear to clash is more intuitive than it looks. Staying within your color comfort zone will enable you to match up different design arrangements for a cohesive look.
