Mixing Prints 101

15:10Lade Ibikunle

I have been trying to catch up with trends lately one of which is the Athleisure trend which I finally hopped on here and another is the Print on Print trend which is currently featured in this post. Print just has a way of adding some edge to your outfit so you can imagine the amount of sassy you will be oozing when you pair print with print. I am not an expert at mixing print but from what I have seen and read online, here are some guides to mixing print.

  • The separates should have a common color
  • Do not overload with patterns
  • Pick items that have the same aesthetic. Eg, geometric look, stripes, flower patterns, animal prints, etc
  • Brink it all together with neutral accessories
