columbus streetstyle: mixing patterns

Street style - some people think you have to visit New York or London to find it, but I think Columbus has an amazing style all it's own! I constantly find myself wanting to stop random strangers to pay them a compliment or ask...where'd you get that?? Inspiration is all around in the capital city. Here's my first attempt to capture it:

{where'd you get that...skirt?}  Old Navy

Mixing prints is a scary trend to attempt at first {truth: I haven't done it yet myself!}, but when done right, the result is immediate cool. This lovely lady has it right - pairing the bright skirt with a neutral top keeps the pieces from competing for attention. As far as the prints themselves, stripes and florals make for a perfect contrast! Try this pair if you're a print-mixing rookie. Topped off with neutral accessories, I'd say this a trend success!
