With summer in full swing, Heart is ready to bring out her summer skirts. One example is this floral high-waisted piece with a thigh-high slit. You might not think to pair this with leopard print, but that’s exactly what she did. The heels also look like they have flower embellishments, which tie in with the skirt.

Heart’s airport look consists of a loose-fitting top, lounge pants, and a long cardigan. The top she chose has stripes going in different directions. Her pants, on the other hand, was printed with white cats. What made this easy on the eyes were the choice of colors. She went for something more neutral so the prints don’t clash too much.

Why not pair floral and stripes together? Leaning against white walls, Heart’s prints stood out even more. She wore white pants with vertical stripes and a green jacket with colorful flowers. What you can do is match the colors of the stripes and flowers so that the pieces complement each other more.

Different-Sized Dots

While on a trip to Hawaii, Heart decided to go for a polka dot on polka dot ensemble. She wore a see through black top with small dots, while her black skirt had larger ones. This is an easy way to transition into mixing prints. They are technically the same pattern but just in varying sizes.

Aside from ready-made patterned clothes, Heart creates her own when she paints her bags. In an Instagram post, she shared a photo of one of her bags that featured different prints. Inside it was a large scarf that had stripes and a belt pattern. If you don’t feel like mixing prints with your clothes, try using your accessories.
