Black, White and Red All Over


I have a penchant for Mixing Prints; But, I also find it a little tricky, especially when it comes to mixing prints in different colours. 
Some tricks that help me with mixing same-colour prints are:
  1. Keeping a basic and limited colour palette when mixing very different prints.
  2.  Keeping one major print and the rest minor (for instance; in the outfit above; the skirt is the major print; while the easy print of the racer back qualifies as a minor print). 
  3. Usually, smaller prints make one look slimmer and large prints can make one look a little bigger, depending on your body type, you can use that to your advantage.

I think tips for mixing coloured prints can wait for another day and another post :)
