Print Mixing: Look of the Moment

Look of the Moment: Mixing Prints

Stripes and florals? Not all can master the art of mixing and matching contrasting patterns, prints, and colors, without looking like a walking fashion disaster. It’s rare, but some people manage to pile on the prints and create a masterpiece of an ensemble like the girl pictured here.

Her floral printed skirt in deep orange, green, and maroon, is a statement as it is. Then she layers on a purple patterned scarf for a perfect study in art student chic. The key to pulling off her mix and match technique is to choose color tones on both garments that mesh well and aren’t overwhelming. Her black lace top adds some real femininity to her outfit and the perfect neutral foil to her prints, while the rustic boots add dimension and character. Find out how to get her look below.
