Balance Artist—When mixing intricate prints, it helps to keep one of the prints in a neutral hue, and the other in bright. We love how both the silky textures play off one another.

Thick and Thin—One of the easiest starting-off points is to mix your stripes. A thin-striped cardigan thrown over a thicker-striped tank is effortless, but looks super-thoughtful.

Rad Plaids—Plaids of nearly all colors, types, and textures look wonderful together. A slim blazer worn atop a classic flannel is a fun, wintry take on the classic combo.

Pants Perfection—Printed pants are our weakness. We can't say no to a good pair! Avoid the pajama connotations by wearing a fancy top in a contrasting color

Accessories Matter—Don't forget about your accessories, too! A printed shoe worn with a matching pair of tights are a quirky styling tip!

Unexpected Matches—One of our favorite pairings is floral and stripes. Whether it's a floral skirt and striped top, or a striped tank and a floral cardigan, this combo is usually foolproof!
