Mix and Match to Perfection: Pairing Guide for Prints

I'm often asked "how did you put that together?" Or told " I could never successfully put prints together the way you do". With each of these countless conversations, I find myself giving a tutorial on how to create exceptional looks with prints and patterns.

Confidence is an absolute must when mixing and matching. Add a bold personality and almost anything can be worn without being over the top.

Mixing may not seem like an easy task but I am here to tell you, you can do it! Start with simple colors and similar color tones. Also, combining soft and stark prints will create balance. 

Striped items paired with florals are the next step. Play around black and white or incorporate one with a bold color. You can then infuse the vibrant color to help you choose your floral. 

Once you feel comfortable and have mastered these techniques, you mostly likely will be able to pick and pair almost any print. 

 If you realize that you don't have the patience or just aren't getting it, find items that are already mixed for you.
