Today I just wanted to discuss the two and also give you some photos to look at so that you can achieve these looks as well.
Mixed printing is basically when you put to different prints together in order to create a new daring look.
When mixing prints, you should always try making sure at least one color matches. (at least that's what I do)
I noticed that when at least one color matches within both prints, the look comes together seamlessly. By following that one simple rule, your look will flow versus it looking as if you just through something together.
Here are some examples from some of my friends and I :
|Floral and Black Shirt : Forever 21|
Cheetah Print Skirt : Forever 21
The floral and cheetah patterns just seem to work for me. I admit I was hesitant at first but it came together nicely.
| Black with White Polka Dots Top(really a dress) : H&M|
White with Black Polka Dots Skirt : H&M
This look will stand out where ever you go. Clashing the two different polka dot patterns make a very bold statement.
|This is my friends Mia. She is my fashion twin. We always test fashion and do what we want. I am not sure where her outfit pieces are from but I am sure a lot of it was thrifted. With this look the clash of cheetah and blue make it really stand out.|
|Black and White Aztec pattern dress : Asos|
Floral Print "CHILL OUT" tank : Forever 21
The floral and Aztec prints just seem to really stand out. I love these prints together.
This is a totally different thing from mixing prints. This is when you have the one piece that you don't want to clash with anything else. When you have the one item that stands out by itself. (That's a statement pattern piece. )
Here are some examples:
|This dress is from Asos and it is very bold. It was polka dots which I love but it is very much so a statement piece. The print speaks for itself.|
|This dress !!! I fell in love with it when I first saw it online. I bought it from Asos and it was something about the print; I knew I had to have it.|
|This short sleeve polka dots sweater is from my Forever 21. I absolutely love this top. The polka dots are of course that statement for this outfit, along with the green bag I paired with it.|
|I talked about this look in a previous post but I had to bring it back because this look definitely made a statement. The hot pink sweater from Forever 21 made this look pop especially against the velvet leggings by Hue from Macy's.|
|This blazer !!!! Omg ! It is bold and everything else within this look was kept simple just so the blazer could do what it does best ; LOOK AMAZING. This look is also talked about it an older post and it was thrifted from Goodwill.|
