Mix It Up

Once upon a time, there was a story about the dangers of mixing prints. Some would say, “You can’t mix flowers with stripes”, or “Argyle doesn’t go with polka dots.” Well, like all of the other fables, the idea that you can’t mix prints is a tale of the past. In fact, doing so is very current and looks super chic (for men and women), as long as it’s done the right way. There is a trick to it though…

The best way to mix prints is to make sure they are in the same colour family, and of the same intensity. An example (pictured above) for guys would be a black and white striped button down shirt paired with an argyle sweater vest that also has black and white in it. For women, an example would be a floral print skirt in soft pinks, blues, and yellows on a white background, paired with a fitted pink and white striped cardigan. A great way to go for a classic look with a twist!
