Mixed Prints


I will admit, I have always been afraid of mixing prints. My brain is always telling me “these two things do not go together” or “you must wear a solid bottom with a printed top”. Because of this way of thinking, I have had a hard time latching on to this trend. For the longest time I just thought this was a look I couldn’t pull off – like my style wasn’t “funky” enough to get away with it. My friends – be ye not afraid! I have been playing around with prints a lot lately and now I am fully embracing this look!

If you are hesitant like I was, let me suggest a couple of “gateway” prints that will ease you into it. Polka dots are always a good one to start with, like this polka dot pencil skirt that I paired with a floral tank. Two different prints, yes, but they both have a black base and the polka dots are fairly subtle. You may also want to try mixing prints with stripes. Again, a classic print that isn’t too “busy” and can be paired with literally any print under the sun (even a different striped print – *gasp*).

One thing I love about this outfit is that almost all of it is from Target (the top, the skirt, and the shoes). While I like to invest in nice pieces from time to time, I honestly buy a majority of my day-to-day clothes from Target. It is one of my go to stores for shoes, as you can tell from this post, this post, and this post.

  1. I love seeing outfits that mix prints, but I can't mix them myself AT ALL! I feel like I look ridiculous. LOL!
    You look lovely!
    xo, Lily
