Mixing prints can be a challenge. Here are some things to keep in mind when you are trying this trend. If you follow them you will be sure to look great!
Don’t mix more than two prints per look. Look for prints that are in similar fabrications and feeling. It’s important that the line work in both prints make good friends. Take a moment to think about if the prints you picked are harmonious. For example: Do not mix a hard geo with a soft water color floral.
Next, the colors! Both prints should have almost all the same colors. If you are mixing one multi print then the second should be a bi-color. Don’t mix two multi-color prints. It’s overwhelming. The two colors in the bi-color print should both be in the multi-color print. Then it’s ok to add a pop of another color somewhere in your look.
If possible, one out of the two prints should be inverted. For example; you have two prints with black and white in them. You should see more black and white in one print and the other print you should see less. Playing with scale is another option. One can be a microprint the other can be exploded.
Make sure to break up the look with something solid. Pick on of the solid colors in your look and add a jacket, vest or a solid shoe. Keep your accessories to a minimum. There's a lot happening in an outfit with mixed prints so no need to over-design.
If you follow all these tips you will end up with a harmonious aesthetic and will be print mixing like a pro!
