I usually shy away from mixing prints, like stripes with polka dots, but I've seen styles that really seem to flow. It's making me take a second look. My style is conservative, but I think I can go outside the box, a little. Now, I don't want to look like I'm wearing a clown outfit, but perhaps I should investigate this further.Recently, one of my favorite stylists, @iamdionnedean, demonstrated a little somethin' somethin' with mixed prints, and I gotta tell ya, I didn't hate it. She matched a pink and white polka dot sweater with a striped muliti-colored dress. The key, according to Dionne, is to match the different prints with colors from the same family. It totally worked for her! I encourage you to check out her content for great styling tips, especially with second-hand fashion finds.
I'm going to play around with this mixed prints concept a little more. It may grow on me yet!
Let me know if you've ever intentionally mixed prints when putting together an outfit.
