Rocking graphic prints is tough. You run the risk of looking like you’re wearing a bedsheet, or according to Nicole Richie, something you’d find at a campsite.

“Look for prints that have a darker background and the accent is a pop of color, as opposed to a large, overall bright print,” Richie tells PEOPLE. “That’s the difference in what makes you look like a colorful tent or actually complementing the body.”

Once you find the most flattering pattern for you, the Macy’s designer recommends putting your own touch on the outfit to stand out.

“If I was telling someone how to accessorize, I would just say keep throwin’ on the jewelry, keep throwin’ on the glasses — that’s just how I do it. But you have to do what’s comfortable for you.” Tell us: Do you pile on accessories like Richie or are you a ‘less is more’ kind of girl?
