Polka dots over stripes would have terrified the living soul out of many top-notch designers until the last decade. But now, it’s the ‘it’ trend that every other designer is playing around with. So, we’re exclusively discussing mixed prints from the runways around the world, so you too can enjoy a yummylicious blend of print this year without making a total mess of yourself.
Mix Same Color Prints
If you are afraid of scaring off people with your choice of prints, then the easiest way to mix and match prints is through using the same color. Check out the spring-summer 2020 Ports collection showcasing models donning floral print pastel pink hues mixed with tropical prints.
Digital Prints with Checkered Prints
Marques’Almeida taught us how to pair checkered printed shirts over body-hugging dresses featuring digital illustration and still look chic.
Make a Note with Florals
We all love floral prints that have little magnolia flowers or tulips bunched together beautifully in a bouquet, but when it comes to pairing them up with other prints, they can get really tricky. When mixing florals, there is one tip that you can always use to create an edgy look. Use a common hue in both your prints to guide your pairing choices. You can look at an undertone or a shared color in the design itself.
Checkers over Checkers
Who said you couldn’t top a print over another print that has the same style? Try layering different colors and sizes. Checkers are a fantastic choice for a cold autumn season. They add dimension to your look.
This is our favorite from the Spring/Summer 2020 runways. Use inverted colors to brighten up your day when layering different patterns.
The bohemian chic look can be created by pairing a sophisticated tie-dye dress with a sweet, bold colored blazer, which is both festival and night club-friendly!
Clashing patterns, layering prints, and experimenting with a plethora of color schemes can help you find a pattern that genuinely speaks to you. Break from the conventional patterns and rock a bit of yourself!
