Just follow modern suiting god Tom Hiddleston's lead, of course.

We’ve talked a lot about the style savvy of Tom Hiddleston recently, and as much as we feel like we’ve made our point, the guy just keeps showing up to events in too-good-not-to-mention looks. Yesterday, for example, he rolled up to a TimesTalks discussion wearing an Etro suit and shirt that just about perfectly demonstrate how to mix patterns when you’re wearing formal clothes. We get asked about pulling off mixed patterns a lot, and nailing it is a little bit of an art and a science. That is, it’s about observing the rules and also feeling out the ways things are coming together in front of the mirror, on your own.
One easy trick to lean on is to let one pattern do the heavy lifting. If you want to make a Hiddleston-level impression, make the dominant pattern the one on the suit. Whether you go for chalk stripes, windowpane checks, or rustic plaid, make sure to sweat the tailoring on this one. The only thing worse than an ill-fitting suit is an ill-fitting suit in a loud pattern.

Another go-to move is to mix different pattern types. Hiddleston paired his plaid suit with a striped shirt and polka-dot socks, for instance. It certainly helps that they’re all blue, but you don’t necessarily have to stick to one color when you’re mixing different motifs. Just limit yourself to one or two colors that complement each other.
Finally, in this context, it helps to keep things minimal and classic with your accessories. Hiddleston’s chocolate brown Christian Louboutin oxfords are straight out of the menswear canon, and he didn’t muddle things up with glasses, jewelry, or headwear. If you don’t want to look like a twenty-something style blogger with something to prove, you’ve got to know when to pull back.
