By now everyone from your li’l sis to your grandma has
mastered colorblocking. Mixing prints, on the other hand, is a tad trickier.
Thankfully the secret is surprisingly simple: find different sized patterns in
the same color scheme. Finish it off with bold kicks for a put-together, not

All over color
On the flipside, the monochromatic look works wonders, so

different from black. Highlight the contrasting shades by mixing up the
materials, like leather and knits. Too easy not to try.

Navy + black
Gasp, not navy and black! Oh yes, we went there. Take a deep
breath and repeat after us: Navy and black do
go together. Just like with brown and black, the key is combining non-identical
shades in distinct textures or patterns. Black lace tights with suede navy
