Ladies, forget everything your mother told you. Forget everything you thought you knew. Mixing prints, or print clashing, is here to stay… And it is glorious!!!
The old rule of “never mix two prints” has been thrown out the window and it has made way for so many amazing combinations! Florals with stripes, pinstripe with tribal – you name, it can be done; and all without the fear that someone might look at you and think you’re some sort of crazy person! Sweet!
This weekend I was inspired, both by an article I shared on the Flight of the Fat Girl Facebook page on mixing prints, as well as a comment from a fan, who wondered if polka dots were flattering on a full figured woman. So, I decided to play around a little.
I’ve paired my awesome Instant Vintage polka dot jeans (Addition Elle) with this decadent, Love & Legend printed multi-way vest (also Addition Elle), tan cami from Forever 21+, and these adorable blue and white striped wedges from Walmart to create a mix and match look that seems to just meld together as though it was always meant to be.
So, dare to try something new! Mix your prints! Experiment! If you’re reluctant, just try something subtle like a tone on tone striped pant, and a great printed scarf; or if you’re looking to make a real statement, go with a couple of amazing bold prints to really get noticed! The possibilities are endless!
