In life we’ve all dealt with getting or giving mixed signals and it’s not a good place to be. I’ve opted for mixed prints instead!
Although most people aren’t comfortable with mixing prints, I understand why. It could go wrong really quickly but it also could be a work of art if you do it right. But always remember whatever threads you put on you want to be confident in them because it shows.
In this look, I mixed horizontal and vertical stripes along with snake skin. I kept it simple by keeping it all black and white so the prints weren’t as “IN YOUR FACE” as they could be if I had worn stripes and leopard.
There are a few keys to mixing prints:
Break up your prints!– accessories and jackets can definitely help break up prints that you are wearing. For example, if you wore a snakeskin top and striped pants. You could break it up by wearing a belt.
Wear same prints but different sizes– I mentioned the horizontal and vertical stripes that I was wearing in this post but I’m sure you noticed that they were different size stripes. This is an easier way to maneuver mixing prints as well.
Incorporate Neutral Colors- The best colors to incorporate are black, white and nude they will help offset the prints and/or tone it down your whole look. You could even incorporate denim.
