How to wear it: clashing prints

The catwalks went mad for prints this season. Floral, stripes, polka dots, digital, beach scenes – they’re everywhere, and we just can’t get enough.

So why only wear one when you can wear two, right? Mixing prints is the perfect way to give your style a new-season shake-up, and the best part is you can be as bold as you want.

The prints can completely clash or they can subtly compliment each other for a more dialled-down approach if you’re feeling less brave; it’s all about having fun. 

It can, however, be a little daunting, so if you’re not sure how to mix and match your prints this season, we’ve put together a fool-proof guide to get you looking printastic.

 

Carven is the hot must-have brand of the moment, and we love this striped skirt. The shape is uber flattering – the flare will flatter your hips and the small waistband will draw you in – and the stripes are a classic print that you can rework season after season.

This vibrant blue blouse will be ideal in warmer weather, and the punchy pansy print offers a colourful contrast to the striped skirt without being overwhelming – just make sure you tuck it in to flatter your figure.

If you’re being bold with prints in your outfit, a simple pair of shoes will suffice. And no one does simple – but sexy – plain courts like Christian Louboutin. This nude pair will lengthen your legs in ways you never thought possible. Go on, splash out.

Finally, finish off your look with a simple black bag like this mock crock doctors bag from Topshop. Hand-held or slung across your body it will tie in the black stripes from the skirt and complete the outfit perfectly.
