Not Of The Same Feather

We all have groups in colleges - a mix of people who sit together, eat together, go to movies together and so on and so forth. People of a group might be poles apart in nature, but something brings them together: teacher jokes, food, music, love for a band, trips, conversations and an aloofness or even enmity against other groups. 

When two groups meet, things might not go smoothly. They might not be birds of the same feather. They might not get each other's jokes. They might not do a certain this in a certain that way. They might not talk, they might not agree to disagree.

Mixing two prints is like making two college groups sit together for a day. Everything is unexpected. It's tricky, in fact one of the riskiest trend for all good reasons.

The basics tell you that if one print is bold, the other needs to be submissive and that you need to choose a colour family and stick to it. I have ignored both here. Not very proud to do that, but I can say it is interesting to mix prints.

Have you tried mixing prints yet?
