I know I always mix and match, but today I really had fun with trying different outfit combinations. My rule of thumb when going for slightly unusual combos is to do it with either color, pattern, or texture, but not all three. I like to call this theory: eclectic, but not eccentric. In this case I went for texture: knit tights, metallic faux leather belt, nubby knit scarf, sparkle denim skirt, and rubber boots. I kept the colors and patterns pretty simple though, to avoid crossing over into eccentric.
