I recently have become daring enough to start mixing unexpected prints, whether it be leopard and floral or as seen below, stripes and floral. The key to successful pattern-mixing is sticking to a color palette.
Let's use my outfit as an example; my jeans are a multi-color floral print but pink is the primary color thus I picked that color to add in a different pattern, my striped sweater. The patterns are different but the colors can all live peacefully together. When mixing patterns try to stay with mixing just two key pieces and keep accessories neutral and to a minimum.
I hope this little tip helps when wanting to try something a little different!
