Remember the cardinal rules of style where you mustn’t mix prints or wear black and navy as one?

Well fashion darlings, some rules are meant to be broken. This season anything goes and free for the taking is the luxury of mixing prints for a magnificent, mishmash ensemble.

These aren’t your get-dressed-in-the-dark kind of outfits either. Here are tailored trousers with bursts of magnetic florals, pencil skirts with a bevy of gardens, and blouses with tapestry-rivaling prints.

A D-I-Y guideline: Look for coordinating prints by the same designer or show your creative prowess through pairing assorted items with complementary colors or color intensities.
