#1: Be eclectic
When compared to donning more muted, neutral pieces, wearing prints will undoubtedly make you stand out – even more so when you’re mixing different prints together. Hence, embrace the chance to be slightly weird and go out of your comfort zone. Dare to combine everything together in one outfit, such as stripes, herringbone patterns, leopard print and even fishnet stockings.
#2: Pick a predominant colour
One way to make a multi-print look appear more cohesive is to have a single colour family tie the whole outfit together. For example, the different pieces in the look above complement each other nicely as most of the items are just in variations of pink and purple.
#3: Think of the shape
Another trick to look put-together when combining prints is to think in terms of geometric shapes. For example, stripes will tend to go well with stripes. In the look above, the jacket and skirt look great together as they both have circular patterns, just in different sizes.
#4: Pair with basics
To avoid going overboard with the print mixing, it’s easier to start out with just two different prints in a look, such as leopard and plaid in the case above. Keep the rest of the outfit simple and neutral with basics, like a plain white tee and a black skirt.
#5: Play with contrast
For an unexpected look that will turn heads, pair items that would usually not go together. The more sports-inspired jacket here is worn with a classic striped shirt, and finished off with a silver metallic skirt and eye-catching, bold red patent boots.
#6: Mind your proportions
When your outfit is already loud with the clashing prints and cheery colours, it’s a good idea to take note of the proportions of the pieces. A cropped top matched with high-waist pants is a silhouette that is sophisticated, and always works.
#7: Go all out
Fashion is meant to be fun, so also be confident enough to throw all rules out the window if that’s what you want. A printed suit paired with a printed shirt with tons of standout accessories? We say yes.
