print mix

The clash of the prints -- exciting, rule-breaking, and not for the faint-hearted. It's not an easy trend to tread with so much room for mistakes and potential grimaces, but who cares! Isn't that the point of fash-un? There's no rules here and no one to truly dictate what is on point (please don't put a hit on me Ms. Wintour), you know what I mean? So I always say have fun, be daring, and always be confident in your choices, it's the only way to pull off even a trash bag with holes for your head and limbs. 

Anyway, a guideline I'd like to suggest when trying to mix contrasting prints is to make sure the prominent colors of both prints are from the same color family. It allows for an easier blend on the eye. And thus, here is my attempt at print scrambling with an edgy denim camo jacket and a slightly nerdy flask-printed dress.  And I loved it. Would you try it? Please say yes.

  4. Looks wonderful on you! I've always wanted to try clashing prints! I see that it's a big trend recently. I try to be bold with colors but I don't think all people really appreciate it. I'd love more tips and examples of print-and-print attire! :D

  5. I really love to work prints into my everyday outfits! :)

  7. To clash prints well, going with your gut instinct is a good guide. If you think it works, just go for it! Otherwise, yes, colour family rule applies!
