Print Blending

In the spring and summer, mixing prints was all the rage. As you can probably tell from magazines and fashion shows, that trend is here to stay a while longer. Just the other day I tried some mixing with an outfit similar to this...

I thought it turned out pretty cute, I'll have to snap a picture and replace this picture for the real thing. That was a subtle take on print blending and now I have more ideas that I'd like to try this fall/winter season. 

Fall Print Blending

Leopard & Stripes- Florals paired with stripes were a big trend and still are. But I wanted to take stripes to a different level and mix it up with something fresh that we don't see a lot of. This one can be a bit tricky though if you start adding in too much color or too large/too small spots and stripes. In my opinion, this mix is best if it is kept at a minimal

Plaid & Floral- Again, let's put something else with florals! The light bulb went off for this pairing when I went to Forever21 online and saw their take on "floral grunge." It was a combination of floral, plaid, and stripes so I down played it just a tad. 

Skulls & Polka Dots- Two great prints, who can resist? I took a more girly approach to this outfit with a pencil skirt and glittery pumps. Layer a black lacy bandeau under the top for a sexy night look or a cami and blazer for work.
