How to Mix & Match Prints this Spring

When you start trying to pair prints, sometimes it might seem that your attempted ensemble is yelling at you! That may be because you’re pairing two prints that are too similar, instead of playing with proportions.

You can also look at the boldness of the pattern, a small subtle plaid can pair nicely with a bolder buffalo check pattern. We were wowed when Stacee pulled together this effortless spring ensemble by matching this colorful striped scarf with the tiny blue stripes on this gorgeous midi dress. It’s a great example of how big and small versions of the same print can complement one another! Then, she highlighted the other beautiful bright shades of the scarf by adding lively orange shoes and a pink crossbody bag to pull the entire look together!
