How To Mix Prints In Style

how to mix prints

How to mix prints. After having decided that we love a great print comes the question: “okay, but how do you mix them?”  I have often looked at two beloved pieces and wondered if I can wear them both at the same time. With polka dots and florals and stripes and paisley and just about any other pattern, you can imagine how choosing which print goes with what can be very overwhelming.

The trick is to take a moment and learn a few basic rules that will help you wade your way through the myriad of choices. After that, you will be mixing and matching pieces alongside all the pros!

  1. tr3ndygirl fashion blog

    very beautiful tissue,nice prints
    would you like to pass from my blog?

    1. Thanks!

  2. Great tips. You’re right about starting with stripes when in doubt..stripes go with everything! I personally love mixing stripes with polka dots.

    1. Thanks! Stripes are my go to for sure!

  3. Lubka Christova

    Very useful post indeed 🙂


    1. Thank-you!

  4. Awesome tips! Mixing prints can be intimidating but super fun once you get the hang of it!! My favorite would have to be polka dots and stripes although I have yet to pull it off. Thanks for the tips!!

    1. Thanks! I’m always getting confused by prints…hence this post.

  5. Mixing prints, that is art. Mixing the wrong prints creates a messy environment, I lean towards not mixing too many at once.

    1. I agree it’s definitely an art. I’m good with two maybe 3 but that’s it!

  6. I love prints and mix & match style!!!!
    Great tips Caroline!!!!
    Ciao bellissima!!!

    1. You have fantastic style!

  7. Great post, Caroline. I’ve learned a lot about mixing prints from J. Crew catalogues and Mindy Kaling’s wardrobe on The Mindy Project. It truly is an art. I think going with your gut often helps too, or at least, that’s the tried and true method I’ve kind of stuck by when it comes to mixing prints haha


    1. Yes! She has such a wonderful wardrobe, I never even thought of her, thank you so much!!!

  8. Sara - Window On My Wardrobe

    Great tips! I actually never mix prints in my outfits, but it’s such a fun styling! I really need to do this!

    X Sara

    1. I don’t do it very often but after researching the info for that post, I just might have to!
