It may take time to master the art of mixing and matching the unexpected, but the reward is worth the challenge. When executed well, the exuberant effect will create fun, eye-catching and ultra-modern looks proving that sometimes, more is still more.

The secret to successful print-mixing is establishing a semblance of sameness –whether it’s a similar shape, theme, color or aesthetic –to hold the outfit together for that “beautiful chaos” finish. For an overall graphic look for instance, layer a tie-dye tee with a geometric-print cami dress. Or for a sporty ensemble, slip on a striped, nautical-themed top and a grid-patterned hoodie paired with neoprene bottoms.

Opposites do attract and to achieve that perfect print chemistry, vary your scales. You can offset a structured print, such as a window pane pattern with something subtler and simpler, such as a scattered floral print.Another key to pulling off the print-on-print trend is sticking to flattering silhouette’s because let’s face it, you’re already running amok with multi-colors. Don’t let overly large proportions drown you. Always opt for tailored pieces because a streamlined silhouette will let the prints shine bright without looking too busy.

So be bold and embrace your style idiosyncrasies. Feel free to escape your monotone bubble and live your life in a technicolored, multi-printed world.
