    I know, print-mixing can be kind of scary. I personally like to swan-dive into the deep end of all-print-everything, but some of you might want to take it a little splash at a time. The bottom line is patterns add interest to any outfit, and everyone, of any size, should have that in their style arsenal.

    A head-to-toe print is a bold choice, and mixing two different styles can really add to the impact. Plus, it's easy to do: Just start pulling things out of your closet and try them on. You might be surprised at what falls together. A favorite go-to print combo is stripes and florals, but mixing geometric styles, or putting a busy pattern with a graphic tee, also does the trick.

    The key is not what matches, but rather, what pairs well together. And there's no better way to find that out than playing a bit of dress up. Peruse these nine picks and let the games begin.
