Mixing Prints


I've always loved weekends, but this time I can't even enjoy it. I just have too much work to do. I did try to have fun with my look of the day, hoping that it would cheer me up. Though you might be skeptic since I was not smiling in this picture, I actually did have fun. The "no smile" face was more for the drama of the shot.

This spring season, I've been seeing a lot of people try to mix prints and I wanted to show my own version of this trend. I chose a printed dress (well half of it) and a printed pair of shoes. I think both prints absolutely work together just as polka dots and stripes would match each other.

The trick is finding the right balance between the two prints. You never want to have an overwhelming amount of print. This will only make you seem as if the fabric swallowed you whole. Try playing with it by putting things against each other. If you want to ease into it but still look chic, maybe try a floral printed skirt with a stripes top. Above all else, don't forget to have fun.
