Spring Trends: Mix, Don’t Match


While color blocking may have been all the rage to make a bold statement a couple of years ago, mixing prints is definitely the new daring. Before you dive into this fashion-forward trend, just heed a few pieces of advice to make sure you pull off a hot look and not a hot mess.


When you have a printed top and bottom, bring in some neutral accessories to avoid overdoing it. The woven bag in this outfit gives the clothing center stage but has it’s own subtle detail that makes the complete look very chic.

Stripes in any color are perhaps the easiest print with which to pair. Plus, they can be dressed up or down. This outfit is breezy and chic with printed joggers, chunky wedges and an oversized tote.

When you’ve got a large area of print going on and you want to play it down for daytime, a sleek black or neutral blazer is your go-to. Plus, printed shoes are always an easy way to experiment with prints.
