It’s easy for many of us to get comfortable with our signature styles, but every once in a while it’s great to break the status quo and go for something a little bolder. One way to stand out is by mastering the art of mixing and matching. But be careful, you don’t want to look like your closet threw up on you! There’s a specific way to go about print mixing while still creating a cohesive look and there are two ladies who know exactly how to handle it.

Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini owners of the store Kirna Zabête in SoHo who have also taken their talents to creating The Shops at Target collection (available September 9) are masters of this skill! Through their ventures, have managed to produce  an environment that has become a go-to destination for women on the hunt for something different.

Easley and Buccini urge women to mix prints in order to achieve the Kirna Zabête look. By having the same base color in your various prints, your look will be woven together even if you’ve decided to wear florals and stripes. The pair are big advocates of “more is more” and even challenge women to take on three different patterns! Do you think you can handle that, yet?

Another tip that the duo shared is that finding a balanced proportion to the look is important. For example, pairing a loose top with a tight bottom and vise versa. And also when choosing colors, finding tonal balance is key.

Whether it’s mixing prints, shapes or colors these style mavens are true supporters in having fun with fashion.

“Have some fun and take some risks,” the pair encourages shoppers. “Your clothes are your armor against the world.”
