Ever seen someone rocking a floral print with another pattern and wondered, “can I pull that off?” Well of course you can, and I’m here to prove it to you. I’ve collaborated with one of my favorite bloggers (and fellow Weddingbee blogger!), Katie of Ruffles & Truffles to bring you two takes on the trend.
Since I’m an admitted dress addict, I, of course, started my look with a bright rose-printed dress.
Then I layered on a black and white gingham top. This button down was the perfect choice because it doesn’t compete with the floral print. It incorporates the black and white of the dress but is also a smaller pattern, letting the roses be the main focal point.
I can’t even describe how much I love Katie’s take on pattern mixing with floral prints. She worked in not only stripes and florals but also animal print! Aren’t those shoes to-die-for?! They are seriously killer.
To see more photos of Katie’s look and scope out her outfit details, check out her post! She has seriously great style that you won’t want to miss. So head on over to Ruffles & Truffles now!
Have you ever mixed a floral pattern with another print? What’s your favorite way to wear this trend?

I wore a shirt knotted over a floral dress yesterday! It was a plain lilac shirt though. This looks lovely and yes, Katie’s shoes are pretty cool. I like to mix stripes and floral, I only have one gingham shirt (blue) and was pondering whether to wear it on Friday with my red skirt for the pantone challenge “Poppy” day. Maybe I might now after seeing this!
Ooh I love it! That floral is almost like the Dolce & Gabanna one, but theirs was chilli’s, ha ha
I am loving the gingham on top of the dress! You rock that pattern mixing!
I love this dress (which I thought was a skirt at first!)
I totally wouldn’t have known this was a dress unless you said something–it looks like a high waisted skirt! I love the new “thing” of tying a shirt over dresses like this…allows you to mix things up even more!
I love the way this outfit came out! I really need to start working on my pattern mixing skillz and I really want to use my dresses as skirts!

Oh so loving that print combo! I honestly need to add a gingham shirt to my wardrobe – this outfit confirms it…
I’m not normally a pattern-mixing fan, but that combo really works!
How cute is that skirt, I love it! You are adorable!
Love it! not too many people pair floral with gingham…this is a fresh approach.
I agree, Katie made the three patterns work!
Adorable! Love prints on print! xo, Julie
I love mixing all prints! I think floral works with everything- stripes, gingham, polka dots… I love it all! Your outfit looks fantastic, as always! Love that skirt!
I am loving this dress – and from TJ Maxx? What a steal! That place is both dangerous and magical at the same time (true story)…
Fabulous gingham and floral! You look great Lauren! What a great way to mix it up 😀
I love that floral skirt on you, super cute girl!
I love this! Gingham and floral work so well together! Love those shoes too!
That skirt (err, dress) is super adorable! Loving the print.

Totally in love with that combination! 🙂
Absolutely love the print mixing going on!
You look SO cute!! I’ve never tried the blouse-over-dress combo, but it looks so chic.
great mix of prints!
First of all, I love the idea of knotting a shirt over a dress to give it new life. Smart! Secondly, I love the way you mixed patterns, but I don’t think I’m brave enough yet! Someday soon 🙂
your skirt is darling and your legs look rockin!
Love the combination! Perfect spring outfit!
The rose printed dress is so pretty!
