Since mixing prints is trending this season, I decided to give it a whirl. Mind you, I always thought this was a huge, no-no.
Mixing prints= hot mess!
But, after seeing fellow fashion bloggers do this, I noticed that it can be done tastefully.
I felt a bit out of my comfort zone today; but, I received quite a few compliments on my outfit. So, I think I pulled it off even though I have a few “tweaks” in mind for next time.
Miss Sophia is also “trending” in her polka dot pants! How adorable are they?! Her shirt is one of my favorites and I love how I can cuff her sleeves on her jacket! My lil fashionista <3
Keep the following in mind when mixing prints:
- Make sure you have one common color. In my case, it would be “blue.”
- Combine loose prints with structured prints. Loose print- top, structured print-pants.
- Blend small designs with larger-scale ones. Small design- top, larger- pants (I would consider my pants “medium size print”)
- No more than two prints. You don’t want to “over do it” because then you’re making your way to “hot mess” status 😉
Have any of you tried mixing prints?
