I really love mixing patterns. It's especially easy when sticking to a basic palette of grays and blacks. I also threw in a little brown. Some people don't like to mix black and brown, but I think it can be done and works best when the mixing is done in more than one place.
Last week while it was still cold and wet, I wore these boots since the forecast for the night was rainy. To balance the brown of the boots and to make the oversized dress less frumpy, I added a wide brown belt at my natural waist.
