How to mix and match prints and patterns

Adding some interest and personality to your outfits can be achieved by mixing and matching prints and patterns. Getting it right can also be challenging without looking too busy or clashing. You can mix and match prints and patterns like a pro by following these tips:

  1. Start with one statement piece: Begin by selecting one statement piece, such as a patterned blouse or a printed skirt, and build the rest of your outfit around it.

  2. Choose prints that complement each other: When mixing prints and patterns, it's important to choose prints that complement each other. Look for prints that share similar colors or patterns, or choose one print in a larger size and another in a smaller size.

  3. Stick to a color palette: Sticking to a color palette can help keep your outfit looking cohesive. Incorporate two or three colors into all of your outfit's prints and patterns.

  4. Use solids as a buffer: Solids can act as a buffer between prints and patterns, helping to break up the visual noise. Use a solid-colored jacket or pair of shoes to tone down the overall look.

  5. Experiment with textures: Mixing and matching different textures, such as lace, silk, or wool, enables you to add visual interest to your outfit without overwhelming it with prints and patterns.

  6. Keep it simple: When in doubt, keep it simple. Stick to one or two prints and pair them with solid-colored pieces to create a balanced look.

Mixing and matching prints and patterns can be a fun and playful way to express your personal style. With these tips, you can confidently create eye-catching and stylish outfits.
