I'm actually writing this post as I stare at the pile of books strewn across the bed, waiting to be studied. Yes, my exams are one (end semester) and I will still blog. That's how much I love my blog and you guys. <3
I'll save the rants for another post but here's something I tried the other day and thought I had to document it to show you le stuff. Also, follow me on Bloglovin' and leave your links below for me to check it out. You don't want to miss out on my future posts know?
How to wear Print on Print?
1. Try playing around with the same colour family. Especially when you are just starting this trend, make it a point to use colours of one family.
2. If you'd like to be bold and experiment with contrasting colours, go for contrasting prints, maybe small and big ones.
3. Have at least one solid colour in your outfit. This will definitely help you look subtle and not so in-your-face (not that it's a bad thing). Solid tones bring about a great blend of texture with prints.
4. Jackets, blazers, vests, scarves and such outerwear are amazing for print on print outfits. They add a dimension to your print on print. You can also experiment with a patterned blazer and pant and a solid tee.
5. Who said print on print stops with clothing? There's no limits. Go ahead and play with prints on your accessories, shoes and even phone covers. There's no stopping you!
6. Avoid mixing more than 2-3 prints together. While they do not stop themselves on the runway, I personally feel it looks a lil' weird and overboard after 3 prints. However, you can do so if you feel you can carry it off with style.
7. Walk confidently and be sure of what you're wearing. Your confidence is your best accessory.
What I've done for this look is: I decided to play with prints. So I worked with a circus print and a tribal-esque chevron one. Added a solid cobalt blue colour which was common to all the pieces of the outfit, paired with a scarf of the same colour with light hints of floral lace. Went with white shoes to tone it down and wavy hair in a side hair-do. Added eye shadow and a lighter shade of red for the lips to add colour to the face, however as you can see, the eye shadow doesn't take away the focus from the outfit because I didn't cross the crease line. Toned down the eye liner with almost a thin non existent line.
