Don't be wary of patterns - they can really perk up an outfit. Just choose a pattern that's in proportion to your size. If you're petite, pick a smaller pattern; if you're tall, you can pull off bold patterns. You can mix patterns, too, but make sure they don't compete with each other. For example, pair a herringbone suit with a bold floral print blouse, and you're a pattern pro.
