Marc Jacobs kicks us off with two looks in head to toe print:
See what I mean by over the top? Here are a couple more for you....

Ok, right now you're thinking..."No way." But let's go back. First of all, both Marc Jacobs and Dries Van Noten offer an important lesson in pattern mixing. They both demonstrate that by maintaining a common color you can successfully mix some pretty bold combinations. For most of us, this may translate to a striped shirt with a floral tie--not a head to toe look. Take one piece by itself out of the Dries Van Noten look and you have a great statement that you can tone down with solids. Canali and Calvin Klein demonstrate my point:
This shoe is an inexpensive and subtle way to add prints to your wardrobe. Stay safe with a classic jeans and tee combo, or find a printed shirt with complimentary colors.
If the above looks seem like too much for you, try a smaller/tighter print that sticks to neutral tones, such as this button down from Perry Ellis (and the sale price is killer!).
