By now everyone from your li’l sis to your grandma has
mastered colorblocking. Mixing prints, on the other hand, is a tad trickier.
Thankfully the secret is surprisingly simple: find different sized patterns in
the same color scheme. Finish it off with bold kicks for a put-together, not

All over color
On the flipside, the monochromatic look works wonders, so

Mismatched purse + shoes
Enough with the matchy-matchy, you say? We couldn’t agree

different from black. Highlight the contrasting shades by mixing up the
materials, like leather and knits. Too easy not to try.

Navy + black
Gasp, not navy and black! Oh yes, we went there. Take a deep
breath and repeat after us: Navy and black do
go together. Just like with brown and black, the key is combining non-identical
shades in distinct textures or patterns. Black lace tights with suede navy
