How to Mix and Match Patterns

Similar to the 'no white after labor day' fashion rule, it seems as if 'don't mix your prints' is also becoming an incredibly outdated fashion faux pas. Though it's no longer a thing,  you may still hesitate before you wear two different prints together. If you've ever wanted to pair your frilly florals with bold and brazen stripes, here's your chance! We're revealing the secrets on how to properly mix and match your favorite prints.

Stripes Are Your BFF

If you're dipping your toes into the pattern mixing game, stripes are a must. They mix well with almost all types of patterns because they're commonly seen as a neutral. Not only can you play with the colors of the stripes, but you can also mix the width in another look.

Match Colors, Not Prints

Rule of thumb: if the colors match, the patterns will likely follow suit.  If you're unsure, here is a handy guideline to follow. Though it genuinely comes down to personal style or preference.

Mix and Match The Same Prints

Stripes on Stripes? Absolutely! This is a quirky way to invent your own sets that are already in your wardrobe. Famous fashion blogger Who What Wear says, "this is another excellent example of mixing two of the same style prints. Checkers imagined in different colorways and sizes create a compelling contrast." Pair a bright print top with fun printed pants, or throw on a pull-over sweater with matching colors for a chilly, fall day.

Play With Size

No matter the color scheme, the same prints in different sizes will complement each other. Tribal's latest fashion line has a wide variety of cozy and stylish outfits that range from slim faux suede leggings to comfy oversized pull-on palazzos.

Accessorize Like A Pro

As American Fashion designer Jenna Lyons, once said, "As far as I'm concerned, leopard is a neutral." And we couldn’t agree more! Our favorite way to play with animal print is adding it as an accessory to your ensemble. Think a thin leopard print belt, accenting a black or grey patterned dress, or a polka dot dress worn with a cheetah blazer!

Don't Be Afraid To Have Fun!

At the end of the day, mixing and matching patterns is a fun way to flaunt the fun side of your personal style. So don't be afraid to go a little outside of your comfort zone. Start by shopping for the latest styles on Tribal!
