Mixing it up – Prints and Patterns

Back in the day, mixing prints and patterns was anti-fashion and you would get funny looks if you did it.   Now, it is the coolest thing to do. The better you can do it, the more layered and put together you can look.

If you’re wondering how to get on this bandwagon, here’s 3 easy ways to mix prints and patterns in a fashionable way.

1) Stripes have been done so much that they are a more a basic than a print now. Throw them on with a pair of floral denims and voila, you have one cute looking outfit that is so put together in a French way.

2)  Stripes have won people over so much so that its close cousin the check has been overlooked in the process. Here’s a check top paired with a jacquard skirt, a print and pattern that go well together.
