It's funny how there are some fashion rules we tend not to break because our mothers told us not to. I've always been hesitant to mix prints because when I learned to match clothes, I was taught to pick one and pair it with solid pieces. I still follow that rule for the most part, but I've started to get braver and mix things up a little.
I think the easiest way to mix prints is to make one of them leopard. It goes with so many things!
Don't believe me? Here's how to start:
Leopard print shoes, belts and scarves go with classic patterns and neutral colors without drawing too much attention. I do this often and get a few comments, but it's pretty tame! You can do it! Then, when you're ready to up the ante:
Adding another patten with a leopard pencil skirt or top is a gutsier choice, to be sure, but it's fun to do and not as tricky as you think.
So, are you a mixer of patterns or do you prefer to play it safe?
