Mixing prints is one of my most favorite things this winter. But, if any of you are like me a few years ago, the thought of attempting this is more than a little scary! One of the rules that I have come across that has really helped me get over this fear is this: treat stripes like a solid. Now, in the beginning you may not feel comfortable to put them right next to another print like this, but maybe do a striped shirt with a patterned shoe or belt. Start small and work your way up, it is totally worth it for the options it opens up in your wardrobe.
