Mixing prints like a pro, it’s much simpler than you think.
One of the most basic rules is to pair a “neutral” print with a more elaborate one. In case when you are mixing floral & polka dot, the polka-dot print acts as the neutral, and the floral, the more elaborate. Polka-dot prints tend to be almost symmetrical, and the garment as a whole typically only contains two colors (the color of the polka-dots and the base color of the garment). On the other hand, floral prints by nature are more chaotic, often containing several varying colors. When pairing the two, look for common colors, which will allow them to compliment one another. Choose accessories based on the color palate; brighter prints need the balance of neutral-hued shoes and bags, whereas more subdued prints need a pop of color. (C)
