The Hottest New Trends In Fashion!

When I first saw this trend emerge, I must admit I was a little baffled. All these years I thought prints should never mix! But that is one of the wonderful things about fashion: it is always changing. First it was no white after labor day, then never mixing navy and black (might I add, navy looks so rich next to black), and now yet another fashion "rule" has flown out the window. Take a look below for some tips on how to mix prints like a pro. Think of all the options that just opened up in your closet!

 

Stripes and Dots

This look is very Americana but the asymmetrical hem on the sweater and bold chain necklace make the outfit a little less safe. When the dot is small enough, it doesn't clash with the stripes on the sweater. Of course these prints can be flipped with stripes on the bottom and dots on the top. The stripe top will also look great with your floral skirts, pants and shorts. And the chartreuse wedges just make the whole outfit pop.

Flowers and Checks

Art Deco prints are a huge trend right now and these shorts get it just right. The print and silhouette are timeless and work perfectly for cocktails or dressed down with a white tee. Paired with a subtle grey and white check shirt, the effect is less shocking than you would think. Throwing on a black blazer brings the whole look together. The yellow bib necklace will add interest to this look and so many others.

Leopard and Flowers

If mixing prints in your wardrobe still seems a bit too out there, you can try mixing prints with your accessories. Here, a leopard print clutch works perfectly with a floral dress because the prints are tonal. The cropped denim jacket is the perfect answer to what to wear over a dress without looking too stuffy.
