A decade ago I might have maligned this print-mixing as a saccharine preppy look, but a lot has changed since then, namely Jenna Lyons. Since the "Woman Who Dresses America" took the reigns at J. Crew, she has taught women across the US how to style a preppy look with edge and I will forever associate her with what is now as natural a combination as black and white: paisley and stripes. Just google J. Crew spring collection for basically any year after 2011 if you want confirmation, or just a trip down retail memory lane.
