Eclectic Style. Eclectic Fashion.
More is more and less is a bore ( @ Iris Apfel )
Electric style is mixing of different style, prints and patterns.

Eclectic style is not about conventional or traditional fashion. It is about uniqueness and personal style. You always have to be daring yet sensible if you want to be eclectic. Eclectic dressing is not similar to Bohemian dressing, though. So, you do not have to wear frilly skirts and tops all the time.

For styling “eclecticism”, for example, you can wear silk dress in pastel colors with brogues and leather jacket or wear top in stripes with skirt in chess print.
Believe it or not, fashion trends usually follow the eclectic style. That is why designers often incorporate new pieces with old pieces. Sometimes, they also use recycled materials with brand new materials.( Joe Caparas, August 12, 2010,)
Gucci presents eclectic co-ed collection at Milan Fashion Week 2017. Alessandro Michele outdid himself in eclecticism on Wednesday with a foxy joint men and women’s collection for Gucci.
Flower leggings were worn under shorts, with knee-high boots and a kooky frontpack — a backpack worn on the chest. With bags also used as the clasp of waist-high belts, coats took over as backpacks, not worn but carried hanging off straps. Hairstyles ranged from slicked-back school-marm, worn with glittering glasses, to cascading curls.

How to wear eclectic style in daily life ( Work&Office)?
Forgot about minimalism and classic style. Add some patterns and colour to your outfits, even if you are going on work in office. I will give some examples and I challenge you to wear these pieces to work.
The trick here is to make a statement without being too over-the-top. Ahead, we break down how to pull off spring’s most eclectic trend at the office, illustrated by designers like Joseph Altuzarra, Miuccia Prada, and Marc Jacobs. Consider this your foolproof guide to shining bright, even when you are the boss. ( By Priya Rao JANUARY 27, 2016 http://www.instyle.com/how-tos/how-to-wear-spring-2016-embellishment-trend-office ).
You can add massive earrings to neutral color look, as on Prada’s show SS2016 and dilute classic jacket with patterned mini skirt and pointy-toe flats work well.
Neutralize a too-fancy top, like Alexander McQueen’s silvery fringed tunic, with loose black trousers and sneakers. Throw on a blazer during the day and slip it off once happy hour starts. ( By Priya Rao JANUARY 27, 2016 ).
