How to Mix and Match Prints

Pin It

Have you thought about mixing prints or even tried it and it just didn’t work? With just a few how-to tips, this trend will not seem as daunting and complicated.

How to Mix and Match Prints

1.       Color Focus. Pick prints that have the same color, or color family, woven throughout each piece. For instance a red striped print with a paisley print including red.

2.       Size is Key. Pairing a larger scale print with a smaller scale print is an effortless way to pull off mixing prints. Mixing prints of the same scale risks looking jumbled or unclean.

3.       Combine Loose with Structured. Combining a loose print like tie dye with a more structured print like plaid is a great way to pull off a mixed print look.

4.       Add Texture.  Too many colors can be overwhelming for some. Rather, opt for mixing different textures (even if in the details!) such as a crochet top with an embroidered bottom.

Let It Go T-Shirt

I featured this Let It Go t-shirt after I purchased it back in April and it’s still one of my favorites. It goes with just about everything. I’ve worn it with jeans, shorts, maxi skirts and my newest pairing – a grey skirt. I never knew I could love a t-shirt this much. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t wear a lot of t-shirts but this one has prime real estate in my closet.

I love this look for fall. If the weather gets a little chilly, throw on a black cardigan, black flats instead of sandals and add a pop of color with your handbag.

I purchased the Let It Go t-shirt from Cents of Style. Their custom t-shirt line is fabulous! They have something for the littles such as their #hipster tee, plus workout shirts and my daughter’s favorite ‘I Have Nothing to Wear’ tee. Take a look at their entire selection here. I know you’ll find something to love.

Speaking of Cents of Style, they are having a HUGE Clearance Sale, where Hundreds of Items are under $10.00 and include FREE SHIPPING. That’s my kind of sale! The sale started yesterday (8/26) and continues through 8/31.

Falling for Floral: Fall Fashion 2014

Floral Skirt, Fall Fashion, Fall Florals

Floral prints are definitely not just for summer. I love a dark floral print in the fall and this skirt is perfect for the transition into another season. Our Texas fall is still very warm, so I wear a lot of skirts. I also layer quite a bit and have several denim jackets in different washes. And the “It” shoe for the fall season for myself is the peep toe bootie. I absolutely love these boots that I picked up on sale at Target. They go with jeans (rolled up for a fun look), shorts and skirts. I purchased them in nude so they would go with everything. Now that I know how comfortable they are, I’ll be heading back to pick up a pair in black as well.
