DSC_3312Print mixing isn’t anything new for this little ol’ blog, but I’m never bored with the idea. I feel it doubles your wardrobe options because not only can you wear your prints with solid colors (see the shirt above with a solid navy skirt), but you can also wear prints with other prints. I don’t like to make rules when it comes to most fashion-related things, and the same goes with print mixing. The simple dandelion print of the top works well with the bright watercolor butterflies on the skirt, and the color yellow unites them both. I also like that both prints are artistic interpretations of things occurring in nature. However, I’ve seen mixed prints that look awesome and they take don’t take color, contrast, or theme into consideration. My advice is to experiment and trust your instincts. I know, it’s a bit annoying, like when you used to ask your teacher a question, and he or she turned it around and said, “What do yooooou think?” But, seriously, just try it for yourself. If two (or even three or four) prints do or don’t work well together, you’ll know when you look in the mirror.

DSC_3322Even though this is far from being a tight pencil skirt, it is straighter than what I usually wear. I totally wish I had some pencil skirts though! Since I’ve got hips and a booty, it’s difficult to find them that fit both in that area and in the waist. Circle skirts have always been a safe bet because I only have to have an accurate waist measurement and the rest falls into place. I’ve been thinking about going the custom route and getting a pencil skirt from eShakti (I like this one). I’ve had luck getting more body con-shaped dresses from them before. I consider this skirt to be somewhere in the middle. I don’t think it would get as much twirl action as a circle skirt, but I do have a good bit of wiggle room…not to be confused with a wiggle dress, which is also very cute.

DSC_3335How have you experimented with novelty prints? Let me know in the comments!

I’m sure this isn’t the last time I’ll be sharing outfits with double the prints, so until then, keep mixing it up!

    Fantastic print mixing. I really should start expanding my wardrobe as far as tops go too, so I can start having some more fun mixing prints and such. Also, that necklace matches puuuurrrrrfectly. I really enjoyed seeing you in a different style skirt as well, it’s super cute and you look amazing!

      Thank you, Amanda 🙂 Sometimes as a dress hoarder I can forget how versatile separates can be!
