The easiest way to mix patterns is through color palette and pattern size.  I paired this polka dot chambray and my striped maxi dress, and they look like they belong together.  They’re both subtle patterns, but it definitely counts as pattern mixing.  I love this look for cookouts and the beach.  This fit is very comfortable and easy to wear.  To finish off this soft gray and pale blue look, I added some silver, gray and white ankle sandals.
