How to mix prints for fall

Q. Is there a way to mix and match prints without being overwhelmed?


A. Print mixing is one of the hottest trends for fall 2016.


From all-in-one iterations at Coach to trios of visually warring (yet somehow complementary) prints at Salvatore Ferragamo, virtually every major fashion house and brand showcased layered patterns this season.


So, how do you pull off the busy trend without getting overwhelmed? In short: start small. And this means in both scale of the pattern and the size of the piece.


The key to successfully mixing prints and patterns is to choose one printed piece to make the statement, and one that will act as an appealing accent. And if you’re feeling particularly nervous about the look, stick to silhouettes and cuts you’re comfortable with, in order to ensure you don’t feel self conscious of the fit in addition to the look-at-me prints.


One fail-safe print combination that’s easy to don as well as being oh-so on trend is mixed floral prints. Try on a blouse covered with petite blooms and pair it with a chic scarf featuring larger blooms. Or, go a little bolder with a cool coat covered in here-and-there flowers paired with a pair of tailored trousers and a peek-a-boo appearance of floral heels. Feeling fearless? Consider stepping out in a pair of silk pajama-inspired trousers with a simple oxford shirt — that’s covered in bold blooms, of course.


Stripes are back in a big way for the season, and one of the chicest ways to sport the trend is to layer the look. The key to pulling off this pairing is to keep the pieces in the same colour family. Opt for a black and white horizontal-striped sweater with vertically striped trousers in the same hue combination. Navy, grey and red are also stylish pairings for stripes and monochrome ensembles.


But you don’t have to stick solely to visual patterns in order to get in on the trend. Instead, play with textured pieces such as herringbone trousers, items with mesh inserts and nubby knits paired with a printed piece for a more subtle approach.


Pattern mixing is all about being playful and having fun. And the best part? It presents the opportunity to update your work-to-weekend wardrobe without actually adding pieces to your closet by allowing you to approaching your outfit-building process from an entirely new angle.


So, whether you’re only feeling brave enough to pair matched prints in complimentary hues, or are willing to go all out with stripes, florals and oversized plaid checks (oh, my!), just be sure you’re doing two key things with your mixed-pattern look: feeling comfortable and having fun.Read more at:long evening dresses australia | cocktail dress australia
