Pattern mixing

I am crazy about the new trend of mixing patterns! All of my life I have been taught to NEVER mix patterns! I have to say I am head over heels for this look! Who knew??? I did a little research ( I know it wasn't an adequate amount) and while I am far from mastering this look, I learned a few things!

1. Choose patterns in the same color family


2. Choose fabrics that are similar or work together


3. One print must be larger than the other


4.  Experiment and have fun


Here is an example I find wearable:
Houndstooth winter skirt
Beautiful red heel to dress it up
Great large pattern blouse with a winter feel

How do you mix patterns???? Have a great weekend dears:)
