Hello to all my lovely Fashionistas out there ☺️
How are you guys? Not long until June and summer and we are all getting that summer feeling of holidays at the moment.
Have you done any Spring Summer shopping yet? What pieces have you added to your wardrobe so far and which trends are you adding to your wardrobe? It seems like there are loads of different trends going on right now and sooooo many colours; this summer is all about bright colours.
And this season is all about mixing and blending prints; a trend that is not that easy to pull off and something that not everyone will dare to try out.
Lately, it has become one of my favourite trends as I am anyway a print lover; yet I am picky when it comes to choosing what prints to wear. I think all of us do that. I also caught myself mixing a lot of prints, while I was styling the outfits of the latest Fashion Show for SHE Boutique in Cyprus. And that is when I realised that many fashionistas out there, want to do it but don’t know how. Or never imagined of even mixing prints.
That is why today, I will be providing you with tips on how to adjust this trend to your style and wardrobe and how to adopt the perfect mix & match of prints trend.
•mix two prints of the same colour combination, i.e two black & white prints
•take a colour from the print you chose and mix it with a print in that colour, for example if you’re wearing a multicoloured print with red, yellow, purple, green & blue colours on then choose a second print with one of these colours, for example yellow leopard print.
•mix two different sized prints, i.e if you go with big flowers, then the second print will have to be smaller, for example small sized leopard or cheque.
•choose for your first print, a black & white combination and then mix it with a contrasting colour block print to create a big contrast & clash between the two prints.
•when mixing two strong patterns together, everything else has to be barely there, i.e barely there sandals or a neutral coloured handbag with no detailing.
•if you’re too scared at creating a contrasting print combination yourselves, there are many outfits out there ready made for you. For example, you can definitely find a dress or a jumpsuit that is split in half, and two different print are teamed up and that will just make your lives easier because all you’ll have to do is complete the look with the right accessories.
A few brands that have showed print combinations are:
