Mixing prints in fashion can be very intimidating. I think so often we are wanting everything to "match" that we can't possibly fathom wearing different prints is actually ok! All too often, people get stuck in the "matchy-matchy" rut... however it is actually acceptable to mix prints in your clothing! There are a few rules to follow when you do this though, so it doesn't look like your 5 year old picked out your outfit!
#4 - Start with stripes: If you are a little nervous about this trend, but would like to try it, I think stripes are the perfect place to start. For the most part, this is a pretty classic and conservative pattern. Stripes have been around forever, so most people have at least one item in their wardrobe that has stripes. You can really go as bold or subtle as you want...if you are a little nervous, start with small stripes. Try pairing them with polka dots or with a pastel floral top or skirt.
