I have memories of my mother telling me never to mix prints. But times have changed and, thankfully, that old adage is long gone. Now, when it comes to pairing patterns, pretty much anything goes! The trick is to keep color palettes complementary and avoid mixing too many prints at once.
Below, these fashionistas know how to do mixed prints right.
Chances are there are some printed pieces in your closet that would mix well with each other. Here are some tips for mixing prints without looking like a clown:
*Look for pieces with a similar color scheme and print size (Ie: small florals in different prints)
*Mix in stripes with a pattern
*Since this is a bold look, keep accessories minimal
*Break up the contrasting patterns with a simple belt
*Anchor your outfit with a solid jacket or sweater and bag
Here are some printed pieces worthy of a mix-n-match.
