Mixing Prints – Do it!

The idea of mixing or even wearing prints can seem a bit out there…..or possibly not a good idea. But it can be done, as you should of done during our #dailystyledares last week. So here’s a little inspiration to get you on your way.

To do it right you need to remember a couple of things;

  • the easiest being to mix prints within a similar colour scheme – this way the print ties and blends together, while still making a bold statement.
  • If your pieces don’t share a color within their prints, a similar background colour, like brown, black, white, or grey, becomes important.
  • An easy way to start mixing prints is to wear Stripes and Polka Dots together – or the same print.  Wearing both in a black and white colour scheme, will keep it chic and stylish.
  • Leopard print goes with everything – so does stripes, even together!
  • Keep your prints to only 2,  its easy on the eye and you can see the outfit as one, anymore than 2 say 3 it becomes a bit much and too loud – and no one will know where to look
  • Use a small and large print – not both of the same, again more to do with the effects of the eye and confusing them

Now head to your wardrobe pull out a print and start matching it – give yourself your own fashion parade and have fun!

Faux Fur Vest Sophistication

We all admire the faux fur vest, it’s another piece the is “on trend” every Autumn & Winter. It’s the piece that will add instant sophistication to any outfit. And we love it! It will add a layer of warmth in these cold times. It can be teamed perfectly with a shirt / blouse, jeans and heels. It can also be worn more casually with a knit, jean boots or sneakers.
It’s most important to not wear anything too bulky underneath it or on your lower half, it’s best teamed with items that are slim fitting to balance out your outfit.
