You might not think you can properly mingle stripes with florals, but it’s actually a basic balance of sticking with the same color palette and pattern style. And once you get the hang of it, you might find wearing matched solid hues not nearly as exciting. Check out these street style looks, then head your wardrobe and get mixing.
The big print of the skirt gets a complement from a mod-print shirt and a jacket with see-through lines, bringing the look together. And you can try this with your existing wardrobe by pairing different types of line-based patterns together to create one cohesive outfit.

Another look that combines different types of lines, the plaid pattern of the pant works alongside the horizontal stripes found in the shirt. Pair with your favorite accessories and you are vibrant without being jarring.
Same Color Shades
This combination is so fresh for Spring — placing florals on top of a patterned skirt in the same color palette. And pastels are always on trend when Spring comes around, so consider mixing and matching your favorite lighter-hued prints together when wanting to add a pop to your look.

This is such a fun look for Spring, perfectly matching colors to create a bold combination. The skirt is so flirty with a mod shirt that you can top with a lightweight jacket. And you can totally pull this off with your favorite full skirt and t-shirt.
Big and Bold
It might seem too much, but pairing two completely different types of print, like these bold striped pants and floral jacket just work together. Take into consideration color combinations to keep items from clashing when building your next statement outfit.
