Mix-n-Match + Tieks Giveaway!! {CLOSED}

{crop top: ASOS // pants: vintage // flats: Tieks "Azure Snake" c/o // sunnies: Saint Laurent // bag: Rebecca Minkoff ((also here -- p.s. I linked to lighter shades of the same color bc they no longer carry the darker "petrol" color)}

Y'all know I love me some prints -- and the bigger and bolder the better in my book. These vintage pants were a great find from a few years ago and I've actually never worn them! They've been tucked away in my closet, just waiting for the perfect moment. When I received these gorgeous "Azure Snake" Tieks flats in the mail, I knew I wanted to challenge myself to style them in a mixed print post. Sure, they are beautiful on their own, styled in a simple look, but how fun is it when you can combine two awesome prints together?! So, when I started pulling looks for the post, I re-discoverd these rad pants waiting to be worn, and it was a no brainer. I mean, the colors could not match any more perfectly! I had to wear them with my new flats!
When it comes to mixing prints, I think the best rule to follow is to find a common color or color palette in the two pieces you want to wear. For instance, these two prints are totally different, but their color schemes are very close, making them match pretty perfectly. If you wanted to wear polka dots with leopard print, focus on mixing a black and white polka-dot print with a standard orange and black leopard print -- the black brings these two colors together and makes them work. Tieks has some awesome prints to choose from in their Boutiek: Sand Snake, Mocha Snake, Electric Snake, Lavender Snake, Rose Garden, Copperhead Snake, Nude Lace, Leopard Print, Sunset Stripe, and Echo Park!
Since my pants and flats were the stars of this look, I kept everything else pretty simple pairing it with a black crop top and black sunnies. I finished off my look with a pop of teal in my bag and a pop of blue in my statement necklace. My look was equal parts comfortable and chic!

How do you like to mix prints? Do you have two prints that you love to mix the most?

  1. Such an edgy pair of pants! LOVE, love the pattern, it's so chic!

  2. I would've never thought to mix those oants with those shoes, but they look great together. I like Tom thik im oretty fashionable lol but if I had those oants I wouldn't have had the confidence to mid patterns like that. I would've went with a basic teal tieks shoe....which I have wanted forever btw!


I love reading your comments! Thanks for leaving me some love! (:
