Clashing prints has been hot on the fashion radar since last spring/summer, and it’s gotten hotter, bigger and bolder this summer. You turn to any fashion magazine or read any fashion website and you’re bound to find them talking about ’mashing and mixing print’ trend. It’s fun (albeit risk-taking) and it’s not for the faint hearted!!!
Get crafty and let your imagination run wild. Mix and match all the season’s fantastic print trends.
How to wear?
Try on crazily different prints – mix aztec with animal prints, tribal with stripes or spots, graphic with tropical or for a more print-monochromatic look change up to floral with floral or dot with dots.
Wear your spot shirt with tropical printed skirt and go loud (think bright) on accessories for an ‘all eyeballs on me’ look, team a printed dress with animal print bag and/or shoe or play it safe with the following looks:
- Wear bright colour clothing and clash the print through your accessories.
- Mix muted prints and base colours (like black, dusky pink or beige) and layer them together. Think of wearing a block coloured tee with printed pants and animal print shoe and throw in a jacket like Olivia Palermo (scroll down).
No matter how you choose to wear the look (subtle or bold) keep the colors in the same family or mood. No matter how different your patterns, as long as the colors match, you’re good to go.
It’s time to break the old rules and make new ones. So throw out your rules book which says anything about not mixing the prints, rummage through your wardrobe to find the perfect print clashing pieces and make a statement.
Print clash is the new love of everyone who loves fashion – men included. I’ve pulled out some of my favourite looks from the internet.
