Final Guest Post: Mixing Prints

Hi, let me introduce myself. I’m Sophie from Country Girl Does Norfolk. I write a blog based on fashion, food and foliage. I do mostly outfit posts and today I’m sharing my take on how to wear multiple patterns within one look..

Mixing prints is a great trend. I am embracing it, not only because it means I can make more outfits from my wardrobe but also because its fun and bold.

You can go all out with clashing





Ok, so clashing is fun, but its not for everyone.

How about one obvious print and then a more subtle pattern?







A monochrome pattern, or very thin stripes or a pale polka dot can look like a block colour, so they can ‘calm down’ a look.

Or you could go with two subtle patterns. They may look like block colours, but take a closer look and you’ll see I’m wearing polka dots, stripes, florals, leopard and checks here!



My personal favour print mixing look has to be when I wore my leopard tunic with my floral skirt and they totally co-ordinated. Unexpected result!



So feel free to drop by to my blog Country Girl Does Norfolk and catch up with me! I don’t take myself too seriously and love to see new faces on my blog. I hope maybe I’ve given you some food for thought and maybe some inspiration to try something new.

  1. You clash so well, I don't think I could pick a favourite! I can't mix patterns, the ocd in me has to match!

  2. I love all of these pattern mixes especically the clashes. The best thing about pattern mixing for me is that it is unexpected.

  4. Your clashing works SO well - I love how you carry it of with elegance and confidence :) I especially love the light pieces you team together - the skirt + light blouse etc :) I think they work perfectly :)
