How To; Mix Prints Like A Pro! – Lydia’s Chronicle

Hello everyone,
How’s your week going?
You must have noticed that changed the blog’s theme, I was having a little tech ish with the other theme that’s why. What do you think about this current theme.
I’ve had these fabrics (leopard print and stripes) for a while, I didn’t know what to use them to make but I knew I wanted to rock both prints together,I just didn’t know how yet.
After much contemplation I decided to use the leopard print fabric for a tote bag,and black&white-striped fabric for skirt.

I’m a lover of prints but mixing prints used to be one big deal for me, because I don’t like looking too busy and all.
Personally I think prints are a necessity in a woman’swardrobe.They add life to outfits,however mixing prints is another thing. If not appropriately done, it could could take life out of that outfit and make it look trashy. I guess that’s why most people avoid mixing prints all together.
But there are actually ways you can mix prints without going overboard.
Here are some simple tips on how to mix prints effortlessly without looking trashy;
• Mix scales appropriately;
This has to do with size. It is advisable to mix big prints with smaller prints.

√ Big print – Skirt
√ Small print- Tote bag
