Mixed Prints – it’s a Thing Now

Mixing prints used to be a fashion faux pas. Nowadays, however, celebrities and America’s favorite fashionistas alike, are pairing contrasting prints like there is no tomorrow. Whether it is stripes and polka dots or florals and plaid, it is totally a “thing” now.









If you want to get your feet wet before breaking out the checks and dots, then hear me out! A great way to experiment with contrasting separates is to start with a stand-out accessory. This could be a pair of bold shoes, a purse, or in this case, sunglasses. When I came across these sunnies at Ambiance, I instantly fell in love. No they are not the most practical pair that I own, but they sure will make a statement when I rock ’em. Rather than styling these fun frames with a solid top or dress, I went for my favorite blue striped boyfriend shirt and white cut-off shorts. How did I arrive at this configuration? I was going for the mixed prints look but in a more subtle fashion. Within the geometric pattern of the sunglasses, blue is very prevalent and the reason I paired them with a blue striped shirt! To pull in another prevailing color, I embellished the look with bright pink pumps, and a matching floppy hat. Finally, to incorporate more of the geometric pattern, I polished off the outfit with a similar multi-colored clutch purse. How’s that for a mixed prints beginner run?!


 Call Ambiance and ask Marcella to ship you these sunglasses. Don’t forget to tell her that KK and GG sent you! Shop the rest of this look below:
