Formula: Find a common color and pay attention to the scale of the two prints. They need to either be exactly the same size or opposite (small with big).

Looks that were featured in today’s show:

Model 1:

Outfit from Evereve at West End

The stripes in the sweater are the same width as the stripes in the plaid joggers and the red stripe exactly matches the stripe down the side of the pants.

Model 2:

You can mix the same print when they are in different colors: camo on camo, animal print on animal print, stripes on stripes, polka dots on polka dots. It’s a very on trend approach to a tone on tone look.

Model 3:

If a print on top and bottom feels too wild for you, an easy way to step into this trend is to separate the two prints with a solid like black jeans separating the blazer and the animal print shoe. You could also do a printed skirt or dress and a printed shoe with your bare legs or dark tights separating the two.
