It’s the week of Easter and bold, bright colors are everywhere! What’s even better than bold, bright colors? Bold prints in bright colors! Here are some tips on how to properly mix prints without looking something like a crazy circus clown!

Tip 1: Know that stripes are considered neutrals and that they go with everything!

Daytime calls for a comfortable pair of Converse! Here is a classic pairing of florals and stripes!
Use your shoes to add another pop of color for a more sophisticated nighttime look!

Tip 2: Keep your fabrics in the same color family!

Looking for a spunky new Sunday morning outfit? Here is a more dressed up example of the classic stripes and florals combo!

Use your accessories as a print and if you aren’t a fan of heels, throw on a nice pair of flats to add some comfort to the ensemble.

Tip 3: Pick two different prints that share a single color!

Now, this one may be a little out of your comfort zone, but who doesn’t like polka dots!? Both of these prints share the same background-color: black. This helps the entire look to flow.

Wear a pair of chunky, quirky heels to add a little more depth to your bold outfit! Tying a sweater at your waist creates a flattering silhouette!

These prints are super bold, so for a little more depth, we made sure to keep hair and makeup very simple and soft!

Adding a statement piece of jewelry, in a color from your print, will pull your whole outfit together!

Tip 4: Mix prints between tailored and flowy pieces or different textures.

Here we paired plaid structured trousers with a flowy floral top!

Again, for a more casual look, Converse is our go-to shoes!

For a more daring, dressy ensemble add a pair of your favorite heels in a neutral color to make sure they don’t clash with your prints! Keep your accessories simple for an effortless look.
