To keep from the patterns with clashing with each other or to keep things from looking too busy, pair your larger prints with smaller ones. Small stripes works well with plaid prints or small floral prints with large stripes works too!
Stripes as a neutral
Classic black and white stripes can go with pretty much everything. Treat stripes as a neutral and the possibilities are endless, especially if you want to introduce more colors or louder prints in your pattern mixing.
Mixing prints doesn't necessary have to mean putting a stripped top over a floral skirt. If you're new to pattern mixing, a subtle pop of pattern is a fun way to add a playful element to your outfit.
1 Dominating print and 1 accent print
Pick a print to be the star of the show and a smaller print to accent it. With this I like to keep the color pallet relatively simple to make sure everything else isn't clashing with each other.
Keep the color pallet simple
Again, you don't want too much going on when you're mixing prints. Keep the color pallet simple with maybe black, white and a pop of color for starters. Another tip is when you are mixing prints, try finding a common color in the two prints to help make it look more cohesive.
Last but not least, have fun with it! Fashion is suppose to be fun and in all reality there's really no right or wrong way to wear something. Wear what YOU want, how YOU like it. At the end of the day you're the one sporting the look, don't care what others think!
