Playing with Prints

Dreamecho had a post a few weeks ago where she piled similar prints on each other. I was very inspired, but I don't have that many prints in my wardrobe to play with. Here's what I came up with in Polyvore.

One of the easiest ways to mix and match prints is to start with polka dots. Dots don't lead the eye like stripes. If you keep your colors in the same family, the result is really cute. Lots of lots make me want some candy!
I liked mixing stripes when they were tonal. It seemed to keep the shifting directions from being confusing.


Mixing in a more complex print like floral worked best for me when it was the same colors as the other patterns I was using. The goal is to be different, not eccentric.

Would you try mixing patterns and prints?
