5 Fun Patterns to Wear on a Dreary Day: Friday Finds

Wear fun patterens to stand out this fall.

Fun patterns are always nice to wear on a cold, late autumn day. Because if you can’t enjoy the bright and shiny sun, you can at least find happiness in the delightful pattern on your shirt, skirt, pants, or coat.

Cute patterns, cardigan

1. Embroidered Foret Cardigan

This fuzzy, long cardigan is covered in a beautiful, throwback pattern. While this sweater’s pattern in definitely bold, it isn’t overpowering. So, feel free to wear it atop a striped sweater, or a patterned skirt. Wear it alone on a breezy fall day or underneath one of your long coats if the temperature has really dropped. Priced at $238 from Anthropologie.

Fun pattern, skirt

2. Fairisle Pencil Skirt

This skirt has an incredibly fun pattern that’s bright, seasonal, and on-trend. Pair it with a textured patterned pair of tights, black chunky booties, and a long-sleeved body suit. Or if you’d rather wear it to the office, just cover the suit with a lightly patterned cardigan sweater. Priced at $148 from Anthropologie.

Fun pattern, leggings

3. Pilcro Serif Legging Cords

Everyone needs a nice pair of leggings in their closet for those casual, but “totally want to impress this date,” dates. We’d pair these leggings with a funky patterned top (maybe something like the cardigan we posted in our first suggestion) or a retro patterned coat. Priced at $98 from Anthropologie.

Fun pattern, sweater

4. Ralph by Ralph Lauren Wool Pullover Sweater

This is a typical sweater pattern, yes. But if you pair it with a plaid pencil skirt, you can take your look from typical to funky. This sweater also would also look great paired with another color of checkered-gingham, too. Priced at $20.99 from ThredUp.

Fun pattern, dress

5. Plaid Maxi

Maxi dresses are never out of season, really. Make this plaid denim maxi dress stretch from fall to winter by pairing if with some thick tights and a patterned sweater. Top the look off with a beanie, and some handwarmers to officially never feel chilly at any outdoor event (or when you’re hopping from bar to bar) again.
