Mixed Materials

The trend of mixed materials or mixed patterns makes a bold statement. Just this week, designer Dries Van Noten sent his women's A/W '14 ready-to-wear collection down the Paris runway, and the collection was characterized by mixed patterns, textures, and colors. While his collection was quite bold, the mixed materials trend can be worn in an easy, low-key fashion.

I found a heavy canvas shirt in my closet fabricated from both leather and canvas. The rugged style of the shirt makes more casual and a perfect shirt for a weekend. While the shirt can also be worn as a jacket, being left open with something paired underneath, I wore it as heavy shirt for a cold day. The buttons infuse the look with a utility feeling. The shirt paired well with khaki denim and laceless oxford for an updated, modern look. 

Shirt: Rag&Bone // Denim: RRL
