I don’t know about you, but I was always taught that prints need solids, like peanut butter needs jam. A fear of looking too busy, of drawing too much attention or looking uncoordinated (gawd forbid!) drove this theory and I think most people have totally bought in. I am here to tell you that this summer you should throw that idea out the window.

Mixing prints is fresh, interesting, and alluringly vibrant. Feeling like mixing up prints is a little on the daunting side? Here are my tips on how a beginner can tackle this fashion “do” in total style.

1. Go for black and white:

This is a great way to dip your toes in the mixed print pool. It’s chic, and doesn’t require too much thought.

2. Mix prints where you are comfy:

Have a body part that you are confident about? Make sure that your boldest print is drawing attention to that spot, because the nature of print is that the eye is drawn to it!

3. Don’t over-think it:

One of the best ways to get on the mixed-print-party-train is to just give it a go. Having fun with it! Playing with bold unexpected colours and patterns will have you looking like Miss Fashion, instead of mismatched.
