Mixing Prints: A "Do"

Mackenzie ChigloComment

My new mantra when creating outfits is "just try it." Like so many other aspects of life, trying something new can take you somewhere great, whether it is a love for an activity or hobby you previously didn't know existed, or an outfit combined of pieces you never would have thought to put together. Mixing prints, or wearing black and navy, was considered taboo at one point in the past. Well, not anymore. The key to making this work though is using two prints that are very different from one another; when the prints are too similar, it will start to look sloppy. Polka dots are another great option that would effortlessly pair with this gorgeous midi skirt from H&M.  Now go off and take an adventure through your closet! It may just end with you doubling your outfit options.
