This is our very first blog post and we thought we kick things off with something fun! How to style bold prints! Some days all we want to do is blend into the crowd with monochromatic colors and patterns but when we are feeling a little extra funky, we bring out the exotic prints to make a statement. Wearing bold prints are such a fun way to express ourselves and spice up our style! But it's so easy to overdo them so how do we find the right items to pair with these louder patterns? We have made a list to give you some inspiration! Don't forget that all outfits featured are from our vintage shop and are available for purchase :)
1. Tuck the piece into your bottoms.
We find that clothing with bold prints look much better tucked into pants and skirts as compared to having them hang out. This creates a more balanced look.
2. Pair the piece with monochrome colors.
Most bold prints look great paired with blacks, greys and whites. Don't forget about cream/khaki shades and muted shades of green.
3. Pair the piece with a checked print
We know what you may be thinking! Print on print? That's crazy right?
But no! Checked prints are often times very subtle and when paired with a pattern like floral, it adds the most lovely dimension to your look. This is a tip that most people don't know about and we'd love to see you try it!
4. Pair with colors that are found in the print
This is a simple trick to ensure your outfit looks put together and classy! Bold prints usually have many different shades within it so pick a shade that is not too prominent and find a bottom/top that you have to pair it with!
