mixing prints.

I don't know about you guys, but a trend that I have seen lately is mixing prints.

At first, I was like, "Oh, no. We are all about to look like we got dressed in the dark."

But then I looked up some different outfits. It can actually be accomplished cutely.

That was a surprise to me.

BUT - don't get me wrong, it can be done completely wrong.

Exibit one.

So here are some tips when it comes to mixing prints that I hope you all take into account when trying out this new trend.

FIRST - Do not mix too many prints. If you have zebra, checkered, stripes and polka dots all in one outfit that could be a problem.

SECOND - Make sure the colors of the outfits compliment each other. (ex: red with navy blue, or green with white)

THIRD - Combine "tight" patterns with loose patterns. (ex: stripes with swirls)

FORTH - Big with small patterns.

FIFTH - Have one key piece and form your outfit around that piece. 

I hope that made sense. It did in my mind. 

But PLEASE, before you decided to venture off in the mixing patterns trend consider these five, helpful, simple tips. :)

Have a wonderful day!
