Because in autumn patterns can pile on with ease. 

It’s always a heavy moment when you trade in summer’s simplicity for autumn’s complex combos. Go for it. This season, layers are in and more is officially more. Mix daring florals with hybrid tribal patterns, mad plaids and bold graphics. Start by choosing a fearless favorite, then complement it with dissimilar, less-dominant patterns. Use a luscious color to unify them. Rich berry or deep teal, anyone? If you’re feeling a touch timid, save it for spring. Now is the time to be brave.
