Hey beautiful people!

So we’re a little bit off schedule as this post was supposed to be up yesterday but I got distracted and you know how the rest goes, we move still though.

I’ve always stayed away from mixed prints and all things colourful in general, but in keeping to my style goals I’m actually stepping out more and so far so good guys.

 

Now styling mixed prints is one those trends that’s quite tricky to pull off. Now if done right, it can upgrade your entire style game but if done wrong, one could look like a walking mess of prints, which can be disastrous. This where I come in guys, nailing mixed prints is easier than it seems and these tips should help simplify everything.

 

  1. Stripes are your best bet

For beginners or those in doubt, stick with stripes. They are the safest option and pair nicely with all prints, whether prints in black and white or nicely coloured ones.

  1. Monochrome/ Black and white

When in doubt stick to monochrome, it always works, especially in mixed prints. The truth is no matter how busy the prints are, black and white has a way or toning things down.

  1. Common colour

Before opting to pair two different prints together, identify a common colour. The more common colours between the prints, the more cohesive the entire outfit looks, makes sense? In the first look below you can see that the common colours are yellow and blue which is why the outfit worked.

4.Similar prints in contrasting colours

In my opinion another basic option is to style the same prints in contrasting colour. This gives a daring yet simple look and also incorporates colour-blocking if you opt for contrasting colours.

  1. Incorporating through accessories

Lastly you can always rock the mixed print trend in your accessories. For example, you can pair a printed head wrap with a stripe top or skirt. It’s a safe way to nail the trend without looking too.
