I love stripes and I love floral. So the two combined makes for the perfect ensemble. What’s better then sailors and flowers? I love the eclectic, spring vibe florals and stripes create together (like in Forever 21’s spring campaign). Just like any other trend, mixing patterns can seem a little intimidating. But you don’t need a stylist to master this style; all you need is a couple of easy tips.
1. Keep the prints in the same color family. Try mixing blue and green stripes with blue/green florals.
2. Don’t mix two large prints. If you’re going to wear big stripes keep the floral pattern small.
3. Keep your accessories minimal and neutral. The focus is in the patterns and adding too many accessories or accessories with too much color can make the ensemble look too busy.
4. Don’t be afraid to mix textures too. Like a thick top mixed with flowy chiffon skirt.
