How to Mix Prints

Yesterday I suggested mixing stripes, but you can certainly get bolder with more artistic prints. Whereas the key with stripes was different width, the key with artistic prints is color. Keep one half of the outfit in a neutral - gray, black, white, you get the idea - like this skirt. I love the plaid print with lines that look as if they've been drawn in chalk!

The other half can be a fun rich color like this awesome ink-blot top in gorgeous orange and navy with hints of pink. The rest of the outfit should be plain and simple - opaque black tights and black booties will do the trick with this fuller skirt.
