How to mix prints the right way


Last spring and fall the trend of mixing prints was very hot in the runway, but when it came time to wear it in the streets, it can look a bit too overwhelming and a bit messy. So, before the Spring 2011 season (the perfect time to mix prints) begins, here are some tips to mix prints the right way!

  • The easier and saver way to mix print is by buying a dress  where the prints are already mix.
  • Mix a classic pattern such as strips, polka dots and plaid with them self or bolder patterns
  • Make the colors cohesive.  Both patters should share at least one color.
  • When stepparents, don’t make your full outfit out of different patterns, have at least one solid color item.
