How to Mix Prints For Summer

How to Mix Your Prints Like a Pro

Mixed-print looks emerged as one of the hottest trends for the season, being shown on the runways from brands like Rebecca Minkoff, J.Crew, and Rodarte, as well as on some of our favorite celebrity style setters — and it's proven to be a fun (albeit risk-taking) look for Summer. It's much harder to get wrong than it is to get right; all you have to do is layer up with your favorite prints. Whether it's leopard and florals, stripes and tropical prints, or even paisley and polka dots, you'll create a cool, laid-back look that's all your own. Here are a few ways to make it work:

  • Start with a Summer-ready striped tee and pair of plain white high-tops; this will be the perfect base for your mixed-print look.
  • Add a pair of floral cutoffs (or even a flowered skirt!) for a high-powered dose of prints. As long as you stay in the same color family, it really doesn't matter what kind of prints you put together.
  • If you're feeling even more bold, half-tuck your tee and cinch the waist with a leopard belt. Otherwise, keep accessories neutral, like a thin gold pendant necklace and navy leather crossbody bag.
