The secret to Mixing Prints

Prints can be scary enough on their own! but man oh man can it give people heart palpitations when it comes to wearing two or more together.

So how can we try this ourselves without feeling kind of like a clown?

It is all about finding the colour (or colours) in common or the print in common.

How about you start with a couple of cushions and work your way up from there.

This print mix is even more about the print in common than the colour. It is the tiny lines of black mascara pulling it together.

So you can kind of get the idea that if you buy a print item with similar colours to other print items that you already own, it will all tie together much easier.

Make sure that you don't only try this on yourself, flood your home with print mixing too as it adds so much life.

Learning how to work with colour and print builds courage and with courage comes giving anything a go. It is through practice that you then become and expert.

Are you going to have a crack?
