Get the Look : Printed Basics

At this point the idea of mixing multiple prints in one outfit has gone far past trend status. It looks like the fashion industry is in a fully committed relationship with the styling trick, so if you haven't hopped on board yet now is the time. One fool proof way to get into the print mixing groove is with simple prints like florals, stripes, polka dots, and even leopard print. For the most part you can treat each of these as you would any solid colored piece. As long as there is a color connection between the two prints, you should be good to go!
