Pattern Party: 4 Ways To Mix Prints

Pattern Party: 4 Ways To Mix Prints, Toronto Blogger

I hope everyone is enjoying the remaining weeks of summer that we have left before fall arrives. I am sad to see that it’s almost over because I feel there is so much more to do before it ends.

I really wanted to release this post on Friday but life happened, sorry to those waiting for it.
Today’s outfit may be hard to stomach for some people because there is a lot going on with it. .  Although, these are two separate patterns which kind of compete with each other, each one is still complementary to the other.

If you have ever wondered how two distant patterns can work so well together, here are 4 ways to mix prints like a pro.

1. Mix prints with different size scales. Here I chose to pair a smaller scale print with a larger print scale. It breaks up the different prints and prevents both from competing directly with each other.

2. Mix prints with similar coloring

3. Keep your accessories simple and neutral

4. If this look is too bold for you, you can never go wrong with pairing either this skirt or top with stripes. Consider stripes as a neutral print that works with most other prints.

    Hi Miss JI don't think the outfit is hard to stomach at all. In fact, I was going to say (before reading further) that the two prints work because of the similar blues. Thank you for educating us.www.souljournersstory.com

      You are too kind Madeline.

    I agree with you, pairing bold prints with stripes always helps in toning the prints down. Though I adore this look, such contrasting prints that work so well together. Nicely done hun.Princess Audu

    The different scales tip is really good! I actually love this look a lot. I don't do too many loud looks because I sort of prefer a plane jane look, but I would totally rock this with the right occasion! You paired these pieces really well. 🙂 Not easy to do!-Emily http://www.coatandcoffee.com

    I like to look at the overall theme when mixing prints, to see if the designs work well together too. I like what you said about using stripes as a neutral, that's definitely something I haven't thought of. Great job styling this outfit!~Andrea Tiffany~aglimpseofglam.blogspot.com
