Print on print is a huge trend this season and can be a lot of fun if done correctly. But the catch is that getting this trend right can be a tricky affair. Prints are not limited to only dresses and tops these days; even jackets and trousers come in fun and quirky prints. But mixing them together to get a bold and beautiful look is what you need to work on. Here are five easy tips to rock this trend and make a statement.
Stick to the same colour scheme
Mix prints which are in the same colour family. You could try teaming a green paisley blouse with a green polka dotted or striped skirt. Keep the colours harmonious by wearing different shades of the same colour. It’s your safest bet.
Go easy on the accessories
Keep your accessories simple while wearing too much print. If you do want to combine accessories, ensure they are in solid colours and don’t have too much detailing as it could clash with your outfit making it look too messy. Opt for a block-coloured clutch or a bold necklace in a solid colour.
Floral & stripes
If you’re unsure about this trend, go easy with floral and stripes. These two prints are like chocolate sauce and vanilla ice-cream, they complement each other perfectly. How about teaming a floral top with a striped skirt this weekend? Also, floral jackets are huge this season, so team a flowery jacket with a striped dress for a chic look.
Balance is the key
Balancing two prints is the key to achieving a smashing look. But, getting the balance right requires a little practice. Here are some tips you should keep in mind – balance out intricate prints with neutral hues and bright colours. Mix similar prints such as floral on floral or polka dot on polka dot. If you’re wearing a bold printed floral blouse, team it with a smaller print floral skirt or trousers. Same goes for other prints as well.
What to keep in mind
Printed trousers are a huge trend this season and a lot of models on the ramp as well as celebrities have been spotted wearing printed pants with printed tops. While they can carry this look with elan, if you’re still new to this trend, you could end up looking like you’ve stepped out in your night suit. If you’re on the heavier side, we recommend you don’t mix two bold prints together.
