Have you ever thought about how coordinated different prints can look in an outfit? Many people may find print clashing intimidating, even though the cliche of never mixing different patterns is now a thing of the past, and street style has shown us how to do it beautifully over the years. With the right knowledge and practice, mismatching prints should be easy and effortless to achieve regardless of your level of fashion expertise.
- Use proportions to your advantage
Play around with different sizes of prints and patterns. Pair big motifs and patterns with smaller ones to create balance and harmony.
- Choose a single color from one print, and then choose the other print with that same color.
This is one of the easiest ways to have that coordinated and effortless mismatched look. Pick out one color from a print and match that print with a print of the color you chose.
- Consider monochrome
When it comes to prints and patterns in the same color scheme, you can never go wrong. Prints and patterns in black and white, neutral colors and beiges, and vibrant colors in their boldest and pastelest versions.
4.Play with the same family of prints and patterns
There is a lot of beauty in styling with prints and patterns that are similar to one another like checks and plaids, gingham and houndsteeth, stripes, and polka dots.
- Match prints with complementary colors
Complimentary colors are colors opposite each other on the color wheel and pairing them together creates a bold statement.
