Mixing prints has been dubbed as a fashion crime for far too long—but we say wear what you like and want! There are ways to pair and mix prints together stylishly, the way you’ve seen your favorite celebrities—we’re looking at you, Mindy Kaling—designers and influencers too.
Here are some foolproof tips and tricks to make prints work together for the most stylish, sexy, and alluring look:
1. Choose a dominant print and an accent
You can’t have both prints acting as a focal point, which is why one of them must take the backseat. If you’re wearing a striped top, you could wear bolder bottoms, for instance. Or keep the bottoms subtler when your top is loud. Think of it like one complementing the other, and it’ll all make sense.
2. Play with the size of the prints
Combine smaller prints with larger ones rather than sticking to the same scale. This creates the illusion of depth, too, and helps the look fall into place. If you had the same sized print through and through, it could get very overwhelming and become almost distracting.
3. Stick to the same or complementary color family
Focus on prints that belong to similar or complementary color families. You don’t want to try something radical that clashes and ends up looking kind of like a dessert. Instead, try this: if you have a gorgeous floral blue blouse, pair it with blue checkeded pants.
Alternatively, you can mix colors too, but think about complementary colors when you do so. Here’s a quick overview of what these color pairings are and how you can channel more of them into your print cocktail.
4. Add accessories to break up the look
A pro-tip is to use accessories to space out chunky portions of your look. For instance, a solid, neutral belt to create a divide between your pants and blouse or a plain colored purse in the mix. Neutral or solid-colored accessories act as both a divider and a bridge between different patterns.
