One thing I have started experimenting with more during this past year is mixing prints. I don’t feel as intimidated by the thought of pairing different patterns together. For me personally, I try to have a neutral backdrop to showcase my paired prints. For this particular day, an all black outfit made the perfect canvas for a pop of color in the form of a lumberjack infinity scarf and a hint of leopard print in my strappy heels. Try to have your prints compliment each other and not overwhelm you as an individual.
For anyone who is slightly terrifying of incorrectly mixing prints, start small. Don’t go bold all at once, get comfortable with a dash of one print subtly paired with another. As you get comfortable, slowly develop into patterned pants and patterned scarf. Just be sure that they have the same color undertones and aren’t completely contrasting.
