In The Mix: Mixed up in Mixed Print
Now mixed prints has been a trend for the past few years. I have to admit I haven’t gotten the hang of it. I love the concept. And it looks great…but it’s not easy! I always read the tips when ever I see an article or post, because I’ve been wanting to try it for a long time, but every time I try it on I feel mixed up. Lol I guess that’s the point.
Some say stick to one color scheme, or just stay with small prints, but I kinda think that defeats the purpose. I say if you’re going to do it, go bold! Why do it at all if you are only going to do it a little?
I won’t even begin to talk about what patterns plus size women should and shouldn’t wear! That would take this post on a whole other rant. So for now, we are mixing print right?
Any who, When I found this mixed print maxi skirt in Burlington, ( for $12.99) I knew this was the perfect piece to get mixed up in! The skirt itself is made in a bold mixed print style, so there was no way to do this a little. I paired it with a sleeveless top that I Thrifted ( cost no more than $5) a few years back. It finally felt like the perfect mix to me. I added a mixed denim clutch that I picked up at Ross For Less for $6, as far as jewelry I wore black and white jewlery that I’ve had for a while.
The whole idea of mixed print is about defying fashion rules, and expressing a certain fashion freedom. So I say the only fashion rule you should stick to is, do what make you feel beautiful!
How do you feel about mixed print? Don’t be scared or better yet, do it afraid. Be free, be fashion free!
