Totally Ditsy

Spring is officially here! As mentioned before, patterns and prints are definitely a big trend right now. Floral prints are probably the first thing that come to mind when you think about spring. I already wrote about floral prints a couple of years ago, so I'm going to write about ditsy prints this time. If you're wondering what the difference between ditsy prints and floral prints is, floral prints tend to be big and bold while ditsy prints tend to be small and subtle. If you're still having trouble picturing this, take a look at some of the images posted below.

Since mixing different patterns is going to be the hottest look this spring, try mixing a ditsy print with stripes, tribal prints, polka dots, feather prints, plaid, argyle, houndstooth, gingham, and animal prints. You can even try mixing ditsy prints with bigger floral prints if you're feeling daring. Let me know if you can think of any other patterns or prints that you can mix and match with a ditsy print.
