This season what is hot and trending now is mixing bold prints. Don’t be afraid fellow fashionistas, mixing bold prints can be done without looking messy or overdone. The trick is to take a deep breath, choose prints that will compliment each other, have no fear, and have fun! Pairing stripes with florals is a fun combination of nautical flavor and fresh, ready for summer patterns that are clean and girly. Or try mixing polka dots and a fun cheetah print. This allows you to show off your retro and funky style with just the right amount of sass.
I have found that when combining prints, color is of huge importance. Pairing two very dark prints or two light patterns can work, but they can very easily clash if the colors are too similar. This is why I like pairing a bold print with a darker color scheme with that of a lighter one. And the colors themselves within both prints should flow nicely.
Here I have combined two floral prints (very big this summer) with a third print! Watch out this look will turn heads, but for all the right reasons. First is a washed out floral button down tank with collar from Topshop. Cute alone, but combine it with a black loose blazer covered in bold bright flowers from Urban Outfitters, and you have a spot on look for summer. Add a pair of high waisted denim shorts, a funky long gold necklace, and bold ring, and you are ready for summer. But take this look one step further and pair with a third print, cheetah loafers from Steve Madden. This completed look was made to make your summer style look effortless and fun, just like you.
Enjoy fashionistas and don’t forget to be bold this summer!
