3 Ways To Mix Prints Like The Pros
Day To Night Perfection
We're obsessed with this Missoni skirt from their spring '14 collection, however a busy print plus color blocking can be tricky to work with. For an on-point way to mix your prints, complement a skirt like this one with a softer top (think a lighter, feathered pattern in a striking hue). For daytime wear, we're digging a black and white sporty sandal similar to those in Missoni's show. Photo Courtesy of Missoni.
An Evening Alternative
Ditch the party dress during your next night out for an ultra-cool, mixed print alternative to evening wear. To break up competing patterns, invest in a bold belt like the one shown in Emilio Pucci's spring '14 show for an edgy look that flows together flawlessly. Finish off your ensemble with a sky-high sandal that won't cramp your style on the dance floor! Photo Courtesy of Emilio Pucci.
If You're Feeling Timid
If you're hesitant to mix prints, try out a timid take on the trend inspired by an effortlessly chic outfit from Proenza Schouler's fall '14 show. Instead of teaming two popping patterns, wear a statement dress with a textured or colorblocked sandal instead—equally epic results guaranteed. Photo Courtesy of Proenza Schouler.
