Prints on prints on prints! 

That's how I like my looks. Of course, Marie La Mode already knew that plaid + print mixing are my jam. It's been a minute since I teamed up with the coolest mobile boutique in the biz {here + here + here} + I'm so excited to begin 2018 together. This time around I'm mixing it up three ways because just like the catchy name of the top itself - why choose one plaid?!

Step One | Minimal 
One thing I love about a printed piece is it does the style work for you 100% of the time! For the style minimalist, let the print do all the talking! To create interest, I love to tie up a button down, which shows off the high waist denim deets. The leopard bootie may seem wild, but remember this classic print is considered a neutral - so it's no different than a black or brown option.

Step Two | Maximum
Throw stripes into the mix to elevate your print play. This look is easily my winter style uniform {here + here}, especially when chasing around a toddler. I love the simplicity of layering a plaid top over a striped tee + opting for a colored pant adds a fresh + unexpected element to any look. Keeping the shoe neutral ultimately anchors + completes the look.

Step Three | Major
By now you already know I love to be as E X T R A as possible, which is always apparent in my style choices. I also LOVE an excuse to wear a skirt, so I figured I'd add one of my favorite patterned pieces to the mix. One thing to keep in mind when print mixing is to make sure your options are b a l a n c e d. That means choosing a smaller print to pair with a bolder one. Again, I bring the entire look together with neutral pieces like my tights + sock boots. + since I'm going with E X T R A vibes, why not add a shot of edge with my favorite faux leather jacket.

Which print patterns are your favorite to mix? I personally love plaid + stripes or houndstooth + leopard! Also, which look would you wear from this roundup? Share your thoughts with me in the comments. Thank you to Marie La Mode for kicking off the year collaborating with CURRENTLY Kherington. I can't wait to see what we come up with for spring!
