Landon Simpson’s “Working Prints” is the perfect example of bringing fashion-chaos to order. He carefully assembled a kaleidoscope of patterns and prints that ranged from romantic florals to stripes and bold graphics to psychedelic-prints; all done with an organized geometric feel.
It’s no secret print-mixing can be somewhat scary but don’t sweat over it.
Instead, opt for big, bold prints and wear them together. For instance, put on a hyper-bright floral skirt with a bold striped top, then finish the look with a pair of sneakers. So, what’s the key to mixing prints? Play around with them. Start by pairing prints in the same color family (one big, one smaller), then work-in complimentary colors. Voila! You’ve created the perfect artful ensemble that will warrant a second glance from anybody.
