Hey loves,

I must say mixing prints has to be a trend that I have shunned away from mainly because I considered it a major fashion feat, still do but I decided to start small as I master the expertise to do it like a guru.
Here are some guidelines I used for this look:
1. Mix patterns from the same color family-using one main color when mixing patterns can create a very subtle look or a print that has at least one of the colors of the other print
2.Look for patterns that complement each other-the last thing you want to do is look like you got dressed in the dark.Stripes and floral always mesh well, as do leopard and stripes or polka dots
3.Combine patterns of different densities or sizes-Mixing prints of different sizes help them balance each other out
4.Use accessories wisely-i was careful not to overdo it with the pastel neckpiece because the focus of the outfit was the Prints. The belt also came in handy as a solid color which breaks it up and makes the outfit look more balanced and modern

Would you rock mixed prints?? Let me know on the comment section below

    omg! I came across your blog on IG and I fell in love with this outfit. I have been terrified of mixing prints for the longest time even though I know the theory behind it. But this, this has got to be one of my favourite mixed prints outfits. You nailed it!
