Introduction While the fashion world is no stranger to mixing prints, the clashing prints trend promises bright colors, unexpected combinations, and a lot of excitement. Bold pattern play is very versatile and is used in everything from casual daywear, to evening wear. The array of textures add to the daring vision of this trend.

Flowers & Stripes
This clash is classic and fun. It is worn for a sweeter, lighter look. For this reason outfits with the mash up are typically daywear. However, if paired correctly, one can stun in the evening. The bright colors pop and the textures range from embroidery to printed silk.
