HOW TO MIX STRIPES & PRINTS

WEARING: Mango Coat, Acne Pants, Adidas Sneakers, Galisfly Rings & MalibuCali Alfie Bag.

It doesn’t take a fashion expert to master the art of mixing and matching. Once you learn a few simple tricks of the trade, you’ll be pairing patterns like any blogger in no time. It’s easier than it looks. Once you have these easy tips down, don't be afraid to mix and match patterns. Some of the best combinations happen when you least expect.

1. Use the Law of Attraction:

Graphic prints always play well together. Stripes need not be worn exclusively in one direction. So forget everything you've been told and get creative. In my case I worn vertical stripes with a graphic print on my sweater. The simpler and more graphic the prints, the easir they are to mix, the same print in different sizes will pair well together regardless of colour scheme.

2. Break Up The Look With Solids:

You can go for matching the palette and not the pattern.  You can layer in some solid-colored clothes and accessories to make the mitch and match seem less loud. If the colours look good together, more often than not the patterns will too. Here I paired black, navy and off white together to keep my outfit somewhat subdue but still playing with the stripes and geometric print.

3. Have fun:

If print on print and colours are your gem, go for it, have fun. Mix stripes, flower and geometric prints, because the best thing in life is breaking rules. Do you! Let me know in the comments how you mix and match stripes and prints, I would love to hear it.

  7. I remember being around ten and my cousin specifically talking to her friend and I how one must never mix stripes with prints. That night I did the very opposite and combined the two because I knew she was wrong! Hehehe. Of course, both need to be complimentary to each other and when done right, like in your case, it's sartorial perfection
