How to Mix Spring Prints

Mixing different prints is a key look for SS2011 but it is not as simple as just choosing any old prints and hoping for the best. Follow the tips below on how to mix them successfully to avoid looking like a fashion victim.
 
1. Stay consistent
Look for two prints that have a common factor. It could be that a similar shape has been repeated in both prints (see Lanvin below), or the two prints are of the same form e.g. two floral prints (see D&G below) or two differently sized leopard prints (see Blumarine below).

2. Repeat the same pattern in different colours or sizes
You may choose two striped patterns but on different scales, as on the Prada runways below, or you might choose a vertical stripe paired with a horizontal stripe like the Jill Sander shows.

3. Look for two patterns that harmonise in terms of colour
Mixing two patterns can sometimes be enough of a statement without having contrasting colours added into the mix as well. Look for two prints that have colours from the same family or palette e.g. all soft colours, all light colours, all deep colours etc., depending on your skin tone.

4. Choose two prints in the same fabric
The similarity of fabric will help tie the outfit together.

Because this is such a large trend for SS2011, there will be plenty of styles that have already done the work for you. Look out for dresses that combine prints.
