IF YOU PREFER TO LIVE IN A TERMINAL STATE OF SIMPLICITY OUT OF THE FEAR OF MAKING A FASHION BLUNDER, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, PRINTS ARE MORE WEARABLE THAN YOU THINK.
ANYONE, AT ANY AGE, CAN WEAR PRINTS. THE TRICK IS AS SIMPLE AS NOT OVERDOING IT. CONTINUE READING TO KNOW HOW!
Pair with solids
If you’re new to wearing prints, ease yourself in by updating staple pieces in your wardrobe. Team a printed midi skirt with a plain T-shirt or a printed crisp shirt with a pair of wide-leg trousers. This way, you get the full impact of wearing something bold without looking like you’ve tried too hard.
Acing print on print
Fashion is all about having fun so don’t feel intimidated to experiment with prints! One of the best ways to go about it is to mix the different prints and patterns keeping the shades in the same colour family. Team a classic striped shirt with other patterns, like florals or leopard print. They key to mixing patterns is to pick out similar colours for both top and bottom. Instead of clashing, the multiple prints actually end up complementing each other.
Layer them with a mutated base
Nude or neutral tones allow your prints to totally steal the spotlight. Layer a printed jacket over a beige slip dress or layer your printed skater dress with a blue denim jacket to create a chic ensemble.
Compromise on the accessories
If you’re wearing a head to toe printed ensemble like a jumpsuit or co-ords, it’s suggested for newbies to keep the accessories minimal. Pair it with simple earrings or neck pieces and a solid handbag of the same colour palette.
