Styling 101: Easy Tips For Mixing Prints

Animal prints for daytime can be a challenge to pull off – You want the look to be fun and eye-catching, but not tip the scales into tacky-ville. We’ve all seen one of those. And cringed. My number one tip for making an animal print – Or two – Daytime appropriate is to pair the printed piece and/or accessory with a solid colored piece. Black or white both make great contrasts, as would a more neutral hue like tan or nude.

These Prabal Gurung for Target heels are going to be a staple for me this Spring. There’s very little I love more than an extremely versatile piece like these shoes – They’ll work great for daytime looks with florals or prints, and be the perfect finishing touch & pop of color for monochrome and nighttime looks like cocktail dresses. And yes, I know I need a 12 step program for Zara skater skirts… 🙂
