2 - Make sure both (or all) prints have at least one color in common.

3 - Stripes are generally considered a neutral when mixing prints.


4 - Pair the same print in different color schemes (like inverted colors) or different size scales. 



5 - Pair a more monochrome print with a multicolor print.

7 - Break up print by layering (denim shirt, vest, cardigan, jacket, etc.), accessorizing with a solid belt, or adding solids amongst the prints.
