A Quick Guide to Mixing Prints

by Coco + Creme

Never be afraid to mix prints. The concept may seem outrageous. Once you experiment and learn what works with what, you may find yourself embracing the art of mixing.

Printed pieces like a floral top or a leopard scarf can transform an outfit when worn with other prints. It’s a great way to up your style game while making the most out of everything in your closet.

Fashion gurus like Solange explore this breath taking trend on a daily basis and inspire many women to explore the world of clashing vogue prints. To avoid looking like a carnival character, you have to master mixing.

Here are a few tips to get you started:

Shoes and Top Opposite
A simple way to begin mixing print is matching fun printed shoes with a printed top. You want to make sure that the color scheme is the same for the shoe and top. Have fun with your bottoms by adding colored pants, jeans, or skirt.

Mix Up Your Top with a Scarf
Try pairing a printed top with a printed scarf. A scarf with a classic tartan pattern in red can work with a simple printed top in a contrasting color. You can pump up look by adding a blazer with a less noticeable color of the scarf.

    Don’t forget keeping it in the same color family! Mixed prints can go into side-eye territory pretty quickly if the color scheme isn’t well thought out. Keep at least one color constant in each piece. =D
