One of the hottest trends we’re seeing in the fashion world is “Mixed Prints”. It’s on the streets it’s on the runway, it’s all over the place! At Wild Souls we are often asked just “how to mix prints”, and though there is an art to it, don’t be scared to try it for yourself. There are plenty of examples out there to inspire you. In fact, from blog to blog it seems like brilliant fashionistas everywhere are trying to come up with the perfect combination of patterns in order to be named “Mixed Print Champion”, so here are some of the examples we are currently smitten with (following our attempt of course):
1. Mixing Fringe Trend Prints: “Critter Print Blouse” and “Polka Dot Skirt”
2. Layering a mixed print scarf on another print… From Sydne Style: Striped top with plaid and leopard mixed print scarf. Add the black leather skirt and you’ve got a super chic outfit
3. Leopard is the new black… Here Clara Loren mixes leopard and tartan plaid BEAUTIFULLY!
4. Mix big with small… From Running on Happiness we have an example of a very feminine and fun mix of a large floral and polka dot print blouse layered under a small stripe print blazer. This example demonstrates one of the secrets to mixing prints: Mix a large scale print with a small scale print.
5. Keep it in the color family… ONE little MOMMA got it right here by mixing black and white. For anyone who is new to mixing prints, I suggest you start with something like this. The white on black striped shirt pairs well with the black on white aztec print cardigan. Also, the pop of red from the pants is brilliant!
6. Same idea, 2 ways… Atlantic-Pacific Blog does it again by showing us two different examples of mixing florals with stripes. In the first photo you’ll see a striped tee tucked into a floral skirt and the second you’ll see the same floral print jacket over a striped dress.
