February 5th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: A Modern Take on Print Mixing

The forecast for spring and summer 2019 trends all have one thing in common: prints! Last year, fashion week proved that the louder, bigger, and bolder a print is, the more we will be seeing it for the upcoming season. Print mixing typically has had a reputation for only being for those who enjoy taking risks with fashion, but no matter your style, there is a way to mix prints without straying too far from your personal comfort level. I’ve gathered some inspiration below to inspire you to embrace print mixing, from modern minimalist to bold risk taker.
