The Who What Wear line got me again! 🙂

I am a firm believer in mixing prints, but I can totally see why people shy away from doing it. It may be a little intimidating at first, but I am sharing 4 simple rules that you can easily follow to rock the mixed media trend.

Rule 1: Match colors not prints. For this look you can see that my base colors are black and white. Not everything has to be black and white, but if you keep a centralized color theme it allows you to blend your prints more easily. The blue and yellow are my accent colors.

Rule 2: Choose one big print and one small/accent print. Here my small print is stripes and my big print is the bold floral scarf.

Rule 3: Treat stripes as a neutral. If you have a colorful floral skirt that you normally wear with a white blouse, trade in that white blouse for stripe one. The next time you are thinking about wearing your go-to leopard ankle pants and black button up? Swap that black button up for a striped tank!

Rule 4: If you are still not sure about wearing 2 apparel pieces together that are different prints then start small with an accessory like I did with this bold printed scarf!
