Have fun with fashion. This trend requires it. It’s mixing prints together. So plaid and polka dots is a now a fashion DO as are stripes and floral designs. This is one trend you have to try to for yourself and a few celebs are showing us how it’s done.

Gwen Stefani always looks so put together but always with a cool, rocker edge. This past weekend she rocked striped sunnies with a dotted top and plaid pants.

Beyoncé is another who’s been into pairing prints lately and posted a few different outfit pictures on Instagram.

{ Tips & Tricks To Pairing Patterns }

1. For easy pairing, try prints that are in the same color family.

2. Style a loud print with one that’s more subtle to balance the look. The subtle will act as a neutral.

3. Guess and test. It’s the only real way to find out what YOU like.

4. Go light on accessories. Let the prints do the talking.

As for snagging this trend on a budget, you can go pretty much anywhere, even your own closet. I found some stellar styles for a steal and Forever 21. They only look luxe.

There’s a Polka dot skirt for under $25,and striped top for under $10 and many more stylish finds. Scroll through the showroom and mix and match to your style preference.

I love mixing prints! Subtle stripes w/ leopard print and tiny polka dots w/ black & white stripes are my favorite.
