Print Mixing Round Two

I’m back with another round of print mixing (see previous post & tips here). This look combines two takes on stripes & I love how it turned out. I’ll be honest though, it took some guts to put this together. Print mixing can be risky business, but it pays off big time when you get it right. This look stands out in all the right ways. Let’s find out why this stripes on stripes look just works.

How To Make Stripes On Stripes Work

In my previous print mixing post, I mentioned that it’s important to pay attention to the size of prints your mixing. The stripes on my puffy sleeved top are much larger than the stripes on my skirt. That is the most important thing remember: mix a larger print with a smaller print.

Colors are obviously important in a look like this as well. The shades of blue play off each other & compliment one another quite nicely. Also, the added texture of florals on top of the stripes on the skirt make things not so monotonous.

One last thing to keep in mind it to make sure that the stripes are going the same way. I’m sure there is probably a way to make mixing horizontal & vertical stripes work, but keeping them unified is a much safer approach.
