Style Inspiration: 3 Rules For Mixing Prints.


Mixing prints takes ballsy style instincts. You either look chic and fashionable, or like you got dressed in the dark. Unfortunately, I feel like I would fall in the latter category so I did a little research and found a few helpful tips that I think help accomplish the fine balancing act of pattern mixing.

1. Use different scales. In other words, if you have a smaller print top use a bigger graphic pattern on the bottom, and vice versa.

2. Stay in the same color scheme. Prints look more cohesive and stylish when paired in a monochromatic outfit.

3. Use animal prints as a neutral. You can pair animal print with just about everything and it will look stylish.

Remember the art of mixing prints isn't for the timid, but if done right everyone will admire your fearless fashion sense!
