Whoever told you prints don't mix, lied.
Pick up similar colors in different prints.

Urban Outfitters dress and booties, Anthropologie cardigan and necklace, Express bracelets, Uncommon Handmade ring, Cover Girl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Divine

The next easiest way to mix your prints is to find a color theme. There are plenty of colors in this floral dress, so there are several different routes I could take. I decided to emphasize the blues this time by pairing it with a turquoise striped boyfriend cardigan and a statement necklace with cool tones. I particularly like mixing prints in this case because it keeps the cardi from looking like an after thought. It coordinates with the dress and makes it part of the look, not just a cover up. To add extra interest I added yellow booties for a contrasting color pop. Florals and stripes are a go!
