It's been said in the past that you should never mix print with differing print. It's also been said that you should NEVER say never, so I opted to use this approach instead this week. Wearing two differing patterns contrary to what some believe can be surprisingly chic. When you pair these patterns it's important to be confident. 

Below I've given you a few tips on how to pull off this look:

1. Both prints must complement each other. 

This sounds basic enough, right? Be sure to pair a dominant print against a more subtle one. For instance, today I paired a basic black and white stripe against my floral striped blazer. The florals are larger and louder than the simple stripes on my t-shirt.  

2. Anchor both prints with neutrals. 

To avoid looking like a mess, keep the rest of the outfit neutral (your belt, shoes, and accessories) This will help tie the whole outfit together prevent everything from looking too busy.

3. Everything in moderation.

There should be a maximum of two pieces in the outfit that have a pattern. To start, try keeping the prints within the same colour family or pairing complimentary colours (e.g orange/blue, red/green) together. When all else fails, there is always the classic with black and white.
