To say that pattern play was a mainstay on the spring runways is an understatement. We saw it in all its glory at Prada, Balenciaga, and Marni, thanks to expert styling and a fashion-forward fearlessness. For those wondering how exactly to nail mixed prints on the day-to-day, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together five perfect combos to try without hesitation. Here’s to rocking them like it’s your job!

Start your look with a chic, floral, day-to-night dress.
Accessorize with a mini bag in a complimentary pattern.
Polish off with a classic pump.
A striped pullover makes for a great foundation when it comes to mixing prints.
Pair the aforementioned striped pullover with a checked trouser that hits just above the ankle.
Accent with a classic Fendi logo mule.
For your next cocktail party, choose a leopard shift dress as a base.
Elevate a little leopard dress with red and white polka dot sling backs.
Round out the look with a chic red top handle bag.
A fresh take on a classic cardigan, Balenciaga’s newspaper motif number screams “mixed print contender”.
Wear the cardigan with these tartan and plaid straight-leg trousers.
The final touch? A ladylike slingback with a playful bow.
Go wild with Gucci’s multicolor panther sweatshirt.
Take the vibrant sweatshirt to the next level with an equally standout, pleated skirt.
Ground the look with a pair of streamlined-yet-still-cool sneakers from Alexander McQueen.
