By now, we all know the age-old rule of only wearing one print at a time is boring. Mixing different prints has taken a life of themselves and proven to be an art form. Purposely wearing a dress with a patterned top and a contrasting bottom is wildly exciting and fresh—and we can’t get enough of it.

But before you attempt the trend, here are some rules to keep it fashion-forward and chic:

1. Be careful not to choose two prints that are incredibly busy. In June Ambrose’s look, the leopard takes centerstage and the stripes are less busy.

2. You don’t necessarily have to stick with a color scheme. Just make sure the colors are complimentary. Clashing colors like red and green for example can make your look jarring.

3. Mix prints that are two different sizes. Pick a top with a large print but wear a smaller print on the bottom to give some much-needed variety.

4. Be confident! You have to wear this trend with some attitude.

So if your closet is full of plaids, stripes and florals, try mixing them together for a high fashion moment that will warrant a second look.

Would you try mixing prints? What are you favorite prints to mix?
