A full on rebellion of monochrome, Paris born Marie de Chaumont Quitry of the blog Rayures & Peonies, dives head first into a head to toe print ensemble.  Her "Parisian with a NY touch" style makes what could be a busy look, appear simple.  Similiar lines within the checks and stripes, marry the two prints together, while the contrast in colors create depth.

Conforming to the 'animal print is a neutral' movement, Greta Hollar of Nashville, TN  knows how to wear the summer trend. It is always safest to opt for similar colors when mixing prints like the Five Sparrows Boutique owner did above.  Have a fear of committment?  Flirt with the fashion trend by choosing an accessory instead.  It can easily be replaced if insecurity sets in, although we doubt it will in a fierce animal print.

Jackie Welling of Little J Style takes prints to a whole new level by embracing the floral summer trend in this gorgeous full, midi dress.  Not only following the similar colors rule, she also creates contrast by combining a bold, feminimine print with a basic, gender neutral grid pattern.  Simple, yet detailed accessories complete the look.

Why limit your print mixing to your outifit?  Emphasizing the playfulness of her look, Jenn Lake of Style Charade chooses a complimentary spotty background.  Opposite of the wall behind it, a high coverage spot pattern for a top integrates better with a low coverage, sprig pattern seen on her bottoms.  Jenn ensures the white dots match the underlining shade of the printed pant to bring together the two.

Like the Style Charade, Jane Song of Fit Fab Fun Mom utlitzed polka dots and a low coverage print to her fashion advantage.  Further proving florals are always a win-win, her complete look is unparalleled.  The harshness of the black is overshadowed by the flowing structure of the skirt and the light accessories, making her outfit bold, yet harmonious.
