Hi Country Living in Heels readers! I’m Nikki from The Fashionable Wife. I am so excited to be guest posting for Joelle while she is on vacation!
I love mixing things up with the pieces I have, and one of my favorite ways to do this is mixing prints. I know that it can seem a little scary at first, but I promise I have some great tips that will help you to stay cute and put together, and not like a four year old who got to dress herself for school!
Start small: If you are nervous to mix prints, start small with accessories. A leopard belt or pair of shoes is a great way to incorporate a second print.
Treat Stripes as a Neutral: I consider stripes a neutral. Stripes work with every print and always look great. Stripes are about as close to a neutral as possible!
Have a Common Color: One way to tie two different prints together is to have a common color. Having a common color in each print makes the look seem less random and thrown together.
Experiment. Fashion is suppose to be fun, so don’t be afraid to experiment! I love stripes and florals together. And leopard looks great with just about anything. Mixing polka dots and stripes in another great look.
I hope I have given you some ideas on how you can start incorporating mixing prints into your look. Once you start you will love it!
