I have a couple of interesting tips when mixing these patterns. I sure hope you will try them out!
Break Up the Prints With Bold Monochromes
When you have multiple prints in one outfit you want to ensure that your look isn’t too busy. Coming up with creative ways to break up prints can really introduce some fun and flair into your look. For this look, I have introduced a simple monochrome peplum top to break up the two prints – Plaid and Floral. The flowy peplum top adds a lovely feminine touch while keeping the look on point!
Dominant Print with an Accent
When choosing to mix prints you have to be aware of how far you can push the limit. Yes, the sky might be the limit but sometimes you need to stop at the clouds! So pick one dominant print and one accent print. The dominant print will be the eye catching print in your look, usually it will have more surface area and perhaps be big and bold. The accent print will be something you notice but will not compete for attention with your dominant print. I have worn the floral shorts as my dominant print, with it’s eye catching design no other print could compete! My plaid coat and textured tights are the accents here.
Textured Fabric as a Print and Monochrome
Why shouldn’t textured fabrics with an obvious design be considered a print?! They most certainly should! When you have a lovely design like my tights it’s fun to add them to a look. The best part about most tights with patterns is that they are still in a single color. So they still don’t distract from the look and can usually count as a monochrome accent that completes your look!
Prints in the Same Color Family
When pattern mixing for a look, try sticking to one color family. This helps the look flow more seamlessly. The other idea is to have one color flow through all the printed pieces. This tip is simple and easy to keep in mind!
