Farrah: How do you pair stripes with patterns for an everyday look? It looks awesome in magazines, but I don’t know how to translate it for me. Mixing prints can be tricky. What you want to do is make sure that the color palettes in each pattern are complementary. For instance, pair a navy and white stripe with a red polka dot pattern (like this $10 Old Navy tee). You can never go wrong with red, white and blue!
