Hey, you! Yes, you! Quit playing it safe with how you define your style. This year is a golden opportunity for you to step out of your comfort zone and experiment. And one of the best ways to do this is to ditch plain clothes and opt more for printed ones.
Contrary to what you might think, styling prints is relatively easy. In addition to their versatile function, prints are a great way to add a touch of personality to your wardrobe. To give you an extra dose of confidence the next time you wear print dresses, here are a few tips to help turn the streets into your runway.
It takes the right prints to tango.
A rule of thumb when mixing and matching prints is to choose patterns that complement each other. There are two ways to do this: select prints that share either the same pattern or colour.
A little bit monochrome
If you are in doubt about how to match a print, you can stick to a single pattern. However, you could choose a different print for your accessories if you want a more interesting style.
Vary the size of the prints.
Varying the size of the prints can also create a dynamic outfit. Let’s say you want to wear a large floral print dress with a smaller polka dot scarf or accessory. This will help balance out the outfit and prevent it from looking too busy.
Use solid colours.
Sometimes, it takes the right colour to add that “Yass” effect to an outfit. This is true because you can always use solid colours to break up an outfit. Trust us, a printed dress with a solid-coloured blazer or cardigan would look more polished and put-together.
