I have learned a lot from the kids I work with over the years, but I never had thought that fashion sense would be one of them. Kids are dirty and sticky and their not-always-fashion-forward parents are responsible for dressing them. despite all of this, I realized that they have completely figured out some things without any help at all. So here is the first lesson:
Don’t be afraid to mix prints
Leopard print leggings with a floral cardigan, striped socks and a pokadot shirt? Yes. An 8-year-old would also throw on a backpack covered in birds and heart embossed baseball cap, but as an adult, I would stick to mixing just a few different prints.

I like the idea of mixing patterns in black and white if you are still a little hesitant about trying to mix patterns. After that, you can throw in a little colour with a blazer or heels.
What do you think about mixing patterns? How many is too many?
