1. Newlook Black and White Stripe Wide V Neck T-Shirt £4 | 2. Newlook Anita and Green Black Floral Print Trousers £30 | 3. Newlook Rose Quilted Chain Strap Bag £13 | 4. Newlook Black Patent Chunky Lace Up Brogues £25
This look works for several reasons. Firstly, the colour scheme. This colour scheme works because the blogger has kept the most dominant colours in the same hues, which happen to be neutrals. There are small pops of colour in the trousers, but the main colours run in the same family. Secondly, she has added solid colours into the mix with her bag and shoes. Thirdly, she has opted for one of the prints to be stripes - stripes serve as the "neutral" in the print world and are without a doubt the easiest print to clash with.
Look Two | Floral On Floral

This fashionista also adds block colours to her look in order to tone down the clashing prints. For her prints however, she's chosen the same pattern, floral, but in different colours. Despite being different colours, they are in similar hues which is what makes this look work so well.
Look Three | Striped Top & Leo Print Flats

1. Newlook Burgundy Double Flap Contrast Panel Satchel £18 | 2. French Connection TimTim Jersey Top In Stripe £30 | 3. Newlook Black Leather Look Mini Skirt £15 | 4. Ravel Mariah Leopard Print Leather Studded Detail Flat Shoes £35For a much more subtle approach to the print clashing trend, separate your prints with a block colour. The easiest way to do this is by wearing a printed top, a block coloured bottom, then shoes in a clashing print. This is definitely a great way for those unsure about the trend to incorporate it into their wardrobe.
