I’ve talked several times on this blog about print mixing, because I absolutely love it. Wearing two different prints can add so much more visual interest to your outfit than going with solids alone. I get that this can seem challenging at first, especially when you’re trying to get out of the mindset that everything needs to match. Once you’ve gotten over that, you can dip your toes in the water by mixing two prints with the same color, one with a small print and another with a larger, bolder print. After you get comfortable with that, get a little more daring and try mixing two different prints in completely different colors. The way to keep this from looking too crazy is to pick colors that complement each other. In this case, I have two very bright colors, but because they don’t fight with each other too much, it works. Another way to make this a little easier is to find a bit of a theme in how you put colors and prints together. For example, when I bought these shorts, they immediately made me think of Miami, so I thought to myself, what colors make me think of Miami? Obviously, this coral palm tree print shirt couldn’t be more Miami, so they were a perfect (mis)match.
