How to: Mix Prints

Mixing prints only looks good when you do it like a boss. There are two key rules to keep in mind when trying to pull off this look: 

1) Make sure that your prints have at least one color in common (or are complementary colors to one another.) 
2) Don't go over board. Try to limit yourself to wearing at most two prints at a time (**note, advance users may combine up to three at a time).

Check out these two looks I put together to get "mixed up" in the day or night.
