It's a fashion crime to deprive yourself of having fun with your outfits especially when it comes to wearing patterns and prints. Yes, mixing and matching them together may seem intimidating if you're not much for eccentricity, but with the right tips and tricks—and just the right amount of confidence!—we guarantee you'll be an expert in combining these unlikely pairings before you know it.
Start simple by matching prints with similar elements, like Camille Co in her check ensemble, where she opted to wear a vertical striped top with a plaid skirt. She kept her print-on-print number subtle and clean yet still interesting by sticking to one color while breaking the look with different textured pieces.
If you're ready to venture off to combining different prints altogether, the key to a balanced look is to play with the size or density of the prints. Take your cue from Kryz Uy; she let her printed wrap skirt do the talking, accented by a tucked-in gingham camisole.
Once you've mustered up a considerable amount of gusto, it's time to go wild by combining two loud, seemingly clashing prints like Heart Evangelista's floral dress and snakeskin boots. A trick to not overdoing it? Turn down the riot by making sure at least one of your pieces is rendered in a neutral color.
