Turning Heads Linkup -How to Mix Fall Prints

Print mixing for Fall. Have you tried it? I am sharing way to mix prints today on the blog.

How to Mix Fall Prints

One thing I love about Fall fashion is mixing prints and layering. You might not be sure where to start, but I am going to give you a few ideas.

Stirpes and florals are eye catching and mix well together. Try a black and white striped top with a dark floral for Fall

Cheetah and leopard print are purrrr-fect for pattern mixing. These prints, as I mentioned before, act as neutrals, so especially will mix with any other pattern.

If you are a bit tentative to pattern mixing, try it with accessories. A pattern, such as this LV damier, is using to mix with the other patterns in my outfit. Perhaps try it with a pattern bag and patterned dress.

Try mixing a bolder pattern with one that is less bold. A larger striped sweater with leopard print would be a great look, as the smaller scaled pattern will almost act as a neutral ( color).

If you like to make a statement, but are not into BOLD prints, choose 2 prints from the same color palette. I have done that here, with my Mango flowy blouse, and my ASOS long line plaid jacket. Both garments have browns, rust, some black in them. The solid chocolate brown faux leather pants, asks as a break between the patterns.

Camo is another popular print that is considered a neutral. Try pairing it with a plaid this season.

Mixing patterns can be alot of fun, and a great way to make even more out of your wardrobe. Try being creative! It really helps to get out of a fashion rut and try new combinations of styling. I find it is very eye catching!

What’s Goin On?

We enjoyed the weekend with Halloween and dressing up the pups. Truffy wasn’t totally crazy about her Princess Leia Cinnamon Bun hair, but went with it anyway. What I don’t post on the blog, goes on IG stories, where I am active.

Our neighborhood sits outside in folding chairs, at the top of each person’s driveway, which makes it more fun! I get to see the costumes and love the little ones that are just experiencing Halloween. To my surprise, there was no candy left over! I did manage, though to stash away one Kit Kat bar! And hubby and I had a charcuterie board with wine and beer. ( Our treats! )

Yesterday was my second endoscopy to check on my ulcers, happy to say they are gone, but I may still have some Gastritis.

I’ve got a craving for chili ( will make Turkey  chili or vegetarian) so if anyone has a recipe that they love, send it my way!

Have you tried print mixing for Fall? What are your favorite prints to wear?

Let me know in the comments, I love hearing from you!

    I love, love this outfit, Jess so my style too if you don’t mind me saying. The coat is so classy, perfect with the leggings and pretty blouse. Great news that your ulcers have gone, lets hope that the Gastritis improves too. It can’t have been pleasant having two endoscopies. I had one a few years ago and it isn’t the best experience,, but a necessity to find out what is going on. Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

    I love this mix of prints, the coat is so chic! Isobel wanted to go trick or treating with the girl next door as we’ve been away every other year (except for last year when we were in lockdown). The weather was terrible though and I got soaked walking behind them, it was really windy too. Not ideal conditions, but they enjoyed it and got lots of treats!

    You know I love a good print mix! This outfit is fabulous. I adore the fall colors and the check prints with floral. I combined camo, tie dye, and plaid in today’s outfit. An unlikely combination but I love the way it turned out! I am glad to hear that your ulcers are gone! By the way, I am planning a trip to the Asheville area at the end of February and would love to have a blogger meet up while I’m there! I will email you details once I have everything set!

    I love a good print mixing—it’s all about varying the scale but keeping the colors similar, just as you’ve done 😉

    I am sorry to say that we had lots of candy left over, which is not a good thing, as we WILL eat it! lol! Lots of good tips here and I love your example. The print top and plaid jacket are just perfect! Did your pups have fun? I bet they were big hits in their costumes!

    I’ve been craving chili recently, too! Ohh, I love this blazer just by itself as a piece, but also mixed with this outfit. I really need to steal your charcuterie spread idea for Halloween, since my kids are getting bigger and kind of doing their own things on Halloween now!

    This is great print mixing and these autumn colours are lovely on you! I really like that blazer 🙂 It’s sweet your dogs dressed up for Halloween! We don’t really celebrate it here in Australia so no dressing up here!

    Thanks for the link up!

    Hope that your week is going well 🙂

    I’ve just purchased a blazer in a near identical print Jess. I love the colours. I’m tempted to buy the faux Zara leggings to go with it. They look great together xx
