How to mix prints

1 Oct

Mixing prints can be challenging and requires a little trial and error, but if you follow some guidelines it is a great way to create an interesting look.  On top of that, you’re going to expand your current wardrobe options considerably.  I love mixing prints to give my outfit a lot more personality, interest, and charm.  You’ll look a bit more fashion forward and taking these risks are what fashion is all about.   These are guidelines that will help, but wear what you think looks good.  If you feel confident in what you are wearing then rock it.


1)  Make sure at least one color is in both pieces you pair.

2) Choose a small-scale pattern to mix with a large-scale pattern. Two large patterns can be tricky to pull off especially if you are petite.

3)  An easy place to start that looks incredibly chic is pairing stripes with a floral pattern

4) Animal prints can go with just about anything, even other animal prints.

5) Add textures to the mix as well-  wear a tweed skirt with a silk stripe top.

6) Have fun with it – but if you are timid, accessories are a good place to start.
