Mixing Prints~ by Kipp
Normally I tend to say stick with one bold print in an outfit. However, if it is divided by a solid like above then two prints can go well together. I am wearing a paisley Vineyard Vines silk skirt that is one of my summer favorites, a RL oxford, and a Smathers and Branson pink houdstooth headband. This outfit is a great casual Spring/Summer ensemble that brings out the seasons colors. These two prints would look horrid if directly together, such as a print shirt, because the distance is too close. If you separate the prints it is much easier on the eye, and the houdstooth is only on a larger headband. Summer is a time of bold prints, such as madras, so be careful and make sure you do not over do it or you will end up looking like a preppy mess.
