Written Genavese Harris
Fashion prints and patterns are a great way to add a little bit of fun to your style. They put the fun in fashion and allow you to show your individuality. People are no longer matching the same prints; they are putting different prints and patterns together to create unique outfits. The fear of clashing prints is going out of the window, and people are now taking risks with prints.
There are certain things to keep in when mixing and matching prints. Here are some tips and tricks to help create eye-catching attire using prints.
Mix Solid Colors with Your Prints
When it comes to mixing prints, it is always great to use solid colors that coordinate with the print. Be aware of the colors within the print and choose colors that will balance your mixed prints.
Choose Neutral Prints
If you are new to the prints and patterns game, choose neutral prints that work well with any other print. Prints such as snakeskin print, leopard, and cheetah are now becoming more than just fun and festive pieces; they are becoming staple prints in the wardrobe. For example, pairing a leopard print bottom with a striped blouse is an excellent way to mix prints subtly. If you want to be bold and eye-catching, mixing snakeskin print and floral is always a great choice.
Understand All the Different Prints and Patterns
When it comes to clothing are many different prints such as gingham, stripes, animal prints, and plaids. Understanding the basic prints and patterns will help you immensely when trying to put them into your closet or creating an outfit that involves prints and patterns. Start by mixing the basic prints when trying to make an attire out of different prints and patterns for the first time.
Mix Similar Prints and Patterns
If you are reluctant and unsure about mixing prints, choosing similar prints and patterns together. For example, stripes on stripes or plaid with plaid prints are very subtle, but they still allow your personality to show through.
Have Fun and Trust Your Gut
Lastly, have fun with mixing prints and patterns. Your outfit is a non-verbal way of showing your personality. Do not be afraid to try out different prints on yourself. Choose prints that make your personality shine and that you feel confident in wearing. Ignore the naysayers and have fun.
