The Art of Print Mixing: Three Days, Three Ways

We’re never afraid to mix and match prints at ModCloth, and y’know what? You shouldn’t be either! Combining contrasting colors, patterns, and textures is an artful approach that can make an everyday outfit extraordinary.

Below, our ModStylists have put together three looks to take you from work to weekend in bold — but not too busy! — style.

To the Boardroom and Beyond

Don’t let company dress codes cramp your style, girl. You CAN mix prints for your office wear! Brighten up classic silhouettes to breathe new life into your workday wardrobe. We started with a bold pencil skirt, added a contrasting cardigan and blouse, and stuck with solid heels to anchor our look. With flamingos, stripes, and darling dots as your office companions, how could any day be dull?

Going Out? Go All Out

Finally, you’re off the clock, out the door, and on the way to cocktail hour. Don’t leave your prints at home! It only takes a few brilliant pieces, like an eye-catching jacket and a printed dress, to let your night-out look shine. And, speaking of shimmer — make it metallic with a statement necklace and gold booties!

It’s All In the Mix

Now, for a wow-worthy weekend look. Have fun with it! Our favorite casual pieces really know how to pop, so why not wear ’em together? Sport a patterned blouse with unique boots for a look that’ll rock wherever you roam. And, since there are never enough rainbows in the world, double the delight with a prismatic sweatshirt and coordinating jeans.
