no, it’s not a fashion faux pas Trust me, especially not this season. I love colour mixed with print – tropical florals and stripes together is my favourite. The girl of the season is an eccentric individual who can mix prints and colour in a unique and effortless way, like she just woke up, threw it all on and looks amazing.

THE RULES – MY DO LIST
DO When mixing prints, choose two different sizes – one smaller, all-over print mixed with a larger bolder print works best.
DO When mixing bold colours, ground your outfit with one basic piece like denim.O
THE RULES – MY DON’T LIST
AVOID Remember bold colours and prints attract attention. Wear them on parts of your body you want to accentuate and avoid them on areas you don’t want to draw attention to.
AVOID Be careful not to overdo it on accessories. Start with a statement bag and add on from there. Your outfit is going to be a statement, so you don’t want to look overdone.
