Tip No. 2: Try mixing prints in similar color groups

If you’re afraid of going too crazy when mixing prints, try this trick: “Stick to prints that are in similar color groups,” says Rygorsky. Not only will this help blend your look, but the juxtaposition of prints isn’t quite as jarring. For example, a red and blue polka dot patterned top would look great with a red and blue plaid jacket. This works because “there is something in common among the patterns you are wearing,” says Inlander.
