Whoever said “Prints shall never be mixed” is probably hiding in a cave because print mixing is here to stay and fashionistas everywhere are searching aggressively online to look for ways to make their print mixing game stronger. Here are a couple of tips for you to make your print mixing journey easier!
Chaotic yet Classic
In the solid world, the little black dress (LBD) is known to be a closet staple for every fashionably savvy woman. In the print world, however, stripes, animal print, polka dots, and baroque print are the staples which come in handy and can pretty much be paired with any other print family.
Keep it in the fam!
Prints that belong to the same family (checks, florals, dots, stripes, and abstract) go well together and make print mixing much easier. For example, you can pair small polka dots with bigger polka dots without looking like a psychedelic artwork.
Color me maybe?
To avoid disturbing the visual balance and looking like the color-wheel exploded on you, mix darker colors with lighter ones.
Have fun with it
Now that you know the basics, go and have some print mixing fun. However, do keep in mind that mixing prints is all about making a statement. There’s no one way to make this a hit every single time; mixing prints is an art one really masters through trial and error. So go out mix some prints and don’t forget to have fun while doing it!
