Prints, Prints, Prints….
Something about the image below makes it look as if those two prints were meant to clash even though I’m guessing that they probably were created to be worn together. For the rest of us that might not have two pieces that were meant to be (yet!) how do we pull off the print clashing trend? This trend is harder to pull off because if not done right it could make it look like you got dressed in the dark. So how do we wear it?
How to wear:
How does Olivia Palermo always manage to look so chic? A little trick I use when print clashing is matching a bit of colour. For example in the D&G image the two pieces work together because not only are they similar patterns (chains) but the colour palettes match: Shirt; Pink, gold, mustard, dark blue, cream v. Trousers; yellow, blue, green, cream, red. In the case of Olivia Palermo I really think leopard is the new black and adding it subtly with shoes or a belt works great ( a leopard shirt and floral trousers would be a bit much).
Lesson learned: Match similar patterns and or colour schemes. At least one colour on each piece should match! Remember if all else fails prints still look great on their own! Will you or have you tried this?
