    1. Size matters

    When ya dare to wear two prints at once, pay attention to the size. Small patterns on the top look better with big patterns on bottom, and vice versa. Otherwise, you’ll look too matchy-matchy.

    2. Cool color combos

    To avoid looking like ya got dressed in the dark, choose colors that go well together. For the prints, stick to one color or neutrals. You can add some spice with fun shoes!

    3. Daring details

    If you want to wear two super busy patterns at once, make sure one of them is an accessory. You can totally get away with crazy cheetah and fierce florals if one of the prints is on your shoes or bag.
