Mixing Prints for Beginners



Mixing Prints for beginners
Mixing prints can be intimidating, especially for style beginners. I wanted to break down mixing prints for the "beginner mixer" in hopes of helping you do a little mixing of your own.  Here are some tips for getting your mix on! 
  • Each print has a common color - For easy mixing, choose prints that have a common color running through both prints. 
  • Start out with two prints - It can get a little complicated with more than one.  Mix two, master that first and then experiment with three. I most often mix 2 prints and on occasion add in a third.  
  • Mix prints with a similar saturation - By saturation, I mean intensity.  Mixing pastel prints compliment each other and mixing jewel tone (think jewel tones: Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue, etc) compliment each other.  
  • Put a solid between the two prints - Think of your body as a sort of placement map.  Let's say your top is printed, your pants/skirt is solid, and your shoes or bag are printed.  It breaks up the pattern and is a super easy way to dabble in mixing. 
  • Black & White prints mix easily - I've rarely seen two black and white prints that didn't look good together.  Black/White Polka Dots & black/white stripes are always a winning combination to me. 
  • Treat Leopard as a Neutral Solid - In my head, leopard is a nude solid.  I've paired with polka dots, houndstooth, etc.  You'll be surprised how easily it mixes. 
  • Trust your eye - I get a feeling from a lot of the looks that I wear.  I say to myself, "Yes! This is perfect." or "No, this isn't it." One thing that I told myself from the start of this blog and even before that.  If it's fabulous to me, then I'm wearing it! 
  • Have fun! - Don't get so tied up in the rules that fashion is no longer fun.  As a person who has been getting dressed in front of you guys for 6 years, I make sure that when it doesn't feel like fun, I switch up my style.

  1. Due to constant absenteeism, my sister was almost expelled from the institute. The only chance for corrections is to prepare five abstracts of different topics. Five and in a short time. Well it wasn't real. Even if we wrote them together. I found a service to help in this matter https://topswriting.com/review/payforessay Excellent specialists, completed all tasks on time. They came up very responsibly. Despite the speed of writing, this did not really affect their content. I am very pleased. Now we know where to go.
