Today's post I'm dedicating to the ever popular, yet ever so difficult trend to pull off....the mixing of prints. Now I am really seeing a lot of this trend this season as most designers, and retailers, are showcasing fool proof outfits that incorporate this look for you. However, it's not a hard trend to pull off with things you may already own in your closet, if you know a few simple rules....
Here's a look I put together with a few items from my closet.
I won these amazing earrings from JEWELIQ on Side Smile Style. Thanks Ashley!
Rules of Mixing Prints
1) Keep the prints along the same color pallets. I like to use the same color somewhere in both prints to tie them in together.
2) Try to stay in the same fabric family. This is not a necessity, but one I try to stick by so things don't get too crazy.
3) Keep the accessories and hair simple. We don't want this looking like something straight out of the eighties now do we?
That's about it. You can do this look yourself, or shop below a few of my favorites I've found already put together for you.
Last but not least...thanks so much to Joelle from My Passion is Fashion for my versatile blogger award! Hop on over and check out her fabulous blog here.
