Who says you can’t pair prints with prints? The trick is to choose patterns that work together instead of against one another. Choose a theme - a color, a motif, or a repeat size - and carry it through the prints in the look. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with an eye-catching blouse in a multi-color vibrant print. We love the abstract imagery on this silk blouse.
2. You could pair the blouse with a bottom in a color that features prominently in the multi-colored top - but it’s more fun to opt for a color that plays off of the top. To complement the reds, blues, and purples in the blouse, we chose a green skirt. It really makes the reds in the top pop.
3. Make a statement with your accessories. Continue to play with print with a flowery handbag (notice the purple that picks up on the purple in the blouse) and a skull print scarf.
4. Finish off the look with a pair of chunky heels. Notice the purple platform that echoes the purple in the blouse.
