One of the things I love most about reading fashion blogs is the way bloggers tend to reject traditional "fashion rules." Case in point, mixed prints, which are even more popular than ever this spring. Mixing prints can be scary the first time you try it - let's face it, none of us wants to look tacky. There are a few patterns that always look great together, and with just a little attention to detail you may realize that you already have the formula for a perfect outfit in your closet!
polka dots + florals.
Maha Khan from Vogue Affair puts together a three-piece outfit with what might be the most fun mixed print combo for spring: polka dots and florals. It works because everything shares a common element: with the floral pattern: her blazer picks up on the yellow bits from her blouse, and her skirt picks up on the dashes of black. Similarly, Veronica Slater's blouse, belt, and skirt share an overall navy and white color scheme. The polka dot pieces work almost like neutrals because the floral patterns offer more visual variety.
