Effortless print mixing. Mixing prints is an artistic and fun way to add interest to your wardrobe, and it’s easy. There are lots of tips and tricks on Pinterest, and in style blogs. Being ever so slightly lazy, I found a “cheat” that does all the hard work on its own.
Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!
I discovered this flowy dress at a consignment shop, with the tags still on (I guess not everyone loves a pre-mixed print?). It’s from ASOS, usually a more youth-oriented retailer than I choose, but the dress captures my un-stuffy style. And delivers the print mixing, no strategy required.
Dresses are truly the easiest way to clothe ourselves – a dress plus shoes and some jewelry make a complete look. I often wear a casual dress for bike rides, movies, volunteering, or meeting my sis for lunch.

I have never run into a pre-mixed print dress. It really is adorable on you.
I’ve linked up. It has been a long while but it seemed a good time.
Thanks for coming over, Tami! It’s great to see you. I hope you’ll be back. Here’s my take on turning 60 (three years ago for me): it’s as good as you want it to be! xox
Love the idea of print mixing. But when I do it for some reason people think I was getting dressed in the dark. Such a great you mixed patterns!
LOL! I will have to borrow that line! Thanks for coming by, Stephanie. xox
Love your pre-mixed print dress, it looks just so easy to wear. Many thanks for the link up.
Thank you Jill and thanks for linking up. Your tour of Daylesford was indeed delightful! So nice to see Fall foliage. xox
I love the idea of print mixing but I am not as good at it as you, Suzanne, and Mel. Perhaps one day as I continue to study how you all do it! I love what you’ve done with these patterns in your dress and top!
I read too quickly! Your dress IS the print-mixing fix! So good!!!
Thanks Sherry! Yes, I took the easy way to print-mixing : > I so enjoyed your account of being a background actor – you’re always having a fab adventure, you! xox
I LOVE it! What a score! You’ve been hitting it lately in the thrift stores.
Styling it with the hat and those red sneakers is so cool. I’m sure you were the best dressed woman in your town wearing this outfit.
I like it best with the sneakers, too – and thanks for your kind words, Suzanne! And for linking up your useful packing tips. xox
That’s exactly why I love wearing dresses, Patti! I’m loving the pre-mixed one you’re wearing here! xxx
Thanks Ann. You’ve made me crave a trip to Bruges with your excellent travel journal! xox
I have done more print mixing since blogging! I love this dress, the flowy style and how pretty the prints are on you. Love the sneakers too! I just bought some converse I look forward to wearing.
Hi Jess! Thanks for coming by and linking up. Love to see your new Converse (a favorite brand). Hugs to you for your current health issues, xox.
Your dress is so chic. You look stunning. Love your humor. The speech bubble over the head of the cat is so hillarious.
thank you, Nicole! Your post about investment pieces is brilliant – so many good ideas there. Thanks for linking up, xox.
I adore print mixing and to have this one ready made is so perfect great look
Thanks Linda. I adore your musical notes skirt! xox
Now that does make it SO easy when the print mixing is done in the dress for you!! LOVE it, Patti.
Thanks Jodi! I’ve seen you do some terrific mixes – from scratch! Have a great day, xox.
Typically the only print mixing I do is stripes and florals because it is the easiest!
Me too, or maybe two similar florals. Thanks for linking up, and sharing your stylish thrift scores! xox
That’s a cute dress. I thought they were separate pieces at first. Have a great week.
Thanks Julie. Those Athleta sports bras you wrote about look very well-made and pretty too! xox
Oh, what an adorable dress, Patti! And I love that you paired it with sneakers. I just bought three new pairs of sneakers to wear with dresses this summer. And I am also sharing a kaftan dress with mixed prints today!
Thank you dear Shelbee. I love seeing how you styled your graceful new kaftan! xox
That’s a great find, a fantastic combination of print and yes, dresses are the easier things in the world to wear, that’s why I love them! x
Thank you dear Vix. You look gorgeous in your maxi dresses, in the divine gardens you have. xox
ASOS had lots of print mixed dresses! Which are fantastic! Inloggen it!
Hi Nancy – thanks for the info and for linking up! You are always in the know : >
Patti, so true that a dress is SO easy to style. But this one is especially cute with the pattern mixing already done! Happy Mother’s Day!
Thanks, Darlene. Love your pink pantsuit – and I remember in Junior year of high school, we girls were finally allowed to wear “pants outfits”. Yes we have come a long way. xox
Beautiful dress Patti! I love print mixing!
Thank you Kim, and I hope you have a lovely day! xox
What a fun dress, Patti! You look awesome! I’m in for the party – I’ll be there soon in my silk velvet kimono – I went “full Stevie Nicks”!
Thank you so much for hosting, my dear! Hugs to you and the kitties, and an enthusiastic wave at everyone else!
Hey Sheila! Yes, that velvet kimono is simply gorgeous – love the print on the back! Thanks for coming by and have a terrific day, xox.
Love a print mix— that dress has a breezy 40s vibe to it! Very fresh!
Thanks Becky – yeah I feel the 40’s vibe! And thanks for linking up, xox.
That is a sweet dress, Patti. I never would’ve guessed it was pre-mixed. I here today I’m showing up in all one solid color.
Love your head to toe pink – those shoes are so fly. Thanks for linking up, xox.
What a great mix. Love the pop of red in the shoes xx
Thanks Laurie, and thanks for linking up. I enjoyed your skin care review! xox
I love the two tone prints! So unique and beautiful and the mixing together is so fun and stylish. Hope you had a great weekend 🙂
Thank you Heather and same to you! Hope your week ahead is wonderful. xox
I consider myself a PHD in print maxing! Not only do I do it for myself, I have to do it for work — making 6-pack panty combos that usually have 3 prints! Here’s one with two: http://repeatsamb.blogspot.com/2018/02/party-leopard-dialed-down.html
You are! You’re Dr. Bray of Prints-ton! Love those leopard undies. xox
