In his article from Threads #188 (December 2016/January 2017), Kenneth D. King explains his method for using multiple patterned fabrics in a single garment. He writes:

Looks that bring together two or more patterned fabrics are right up my alley aesthetically. I like to design them, and I often wear them. You may think it takes innate artistic talent to mix prints successfully, but anyone can learn to do it.

If you follow the tips from this article, you'll be able to mix prints in all sorts of contexts: single, print-blocked garments; entire outfits, including accessories; or in home decoration. However you approach it, you'll have fun putting together the combinations, and you'll feel great wearing your new looks.
