One thing I am absolutely loving this Fall and Winter season is how bold people are becoming with their style and trying new trends. Another one of my favorite trends this season has got to be print mixing. I’ve seen it a lot at NYFW and really digging it, so of course, I wanted to give it a go in this week’s blog post.
Before getting into the details of my outfit, I want to share 3 easy tips that helped me feel a bit confident in my print mixing journey. The first one that really helped me was finding matching color palettes, not prints! For me thinking about finding prints that would work together was driving me a bit crazy. Once I started looking at matching color palettes, it was much easier to find a mix of prints that easily worked together.
The second tip would be wearing different colors of the same print. Let’s say you have plaid pants and a plaid shirt in two different colors, well put them together and see what happens. I haven’t done this myself yet, but I have seen other bloggers and fashionistas do it, and it looks pretty dope and effortless to achieve.
The last tip but definitely not the least is to remember that strips are considered neutrals. As you can see both of the looks I put together have an element of stripes. So if you’re really worried about print mixing, I suggest starting out with something that has stripes then going forward from there. That’s it, These are the tips that helped me put my looks together and I think you will find very helpful to achieve your own look.
For my first look, I got the pants from H&M last year. The top and shoes are thrifted and were bought this year at different times (Oooh! You can also use accessories to mix prints as I did with the shoes here). As you know I always like to use items I already have to put a look together. This has got to be my fav look and as you can see I used both tip 1 and 2 for this look.
For the second look, I went black and white because you can never go wrong with these colors. I’ve had the skirt for ages also from H&M and I got the top at a thrift store more recently. I also applied tips 1 and 2 to this look but I could have easily added tip 2 to make this look work.
