Clashing Prints of Spring 2018 Fashion Trends.
Is there a fashion “rule” that feels more outdated than “Don’t mix your prints”? (Besides,”Don’t wear white after Labor Day”) And yet, despite the countless seasons of pattern-clashing street-style inspiration, we still might hesitate before placing two different graphics together. It doesn’t have to be this way, though. When it comes to mixing prints, we have come to a point in time where everything goes. Remember when they used to tell you that you had to match your shoes to your bag or belt? Or even worse, that you couldn’t mix black and blue? Total BS and its time to throw those outdated rules out the window because there is no rules when it comes to clashing prints. If they look good together, then I don’t see a reason why you can’t wear it.
Mixing up and layering various prints is a huge trend for this Spring season. This spring PRINT is far more groundbreaking than florals. Designers gave us bold remixed checks to cover everything from sheer dresses to spring suiting and even overalls.
Don’t be scared to try this risky trend that in the end isn’t as risky as you think. Mixing prints is fun and doing it right can create a true statement look, but the only way to get it right, is to experiment. Don’t take the print-styling process too seriously. If you feel ridiculous, that’s kind of the point! Reach for the loudest print you own and think outside the box from the normal neutrals or solids. If anything, it’s an opportunity to really have fun and express yourself creatively.
There is one very important tip to follow while mixing your favorite prints: stay in the same color family. As long as the prints have at least one color in common, you can use contrasting colors. Match colors, not prints.
Helpful Tips below that I read in an Article for all you doubters and first timers out there. I found it very helpful
Check Mate – Check print is all the rage right now – kick yours up a notch by pairing it with a striped piece and the color of the season, red.
Pop of color – Pick one color in the pattern to highlight and add another item to the look in the same shade to keep it cohesive.
Layered Lyfe – Layering printed items works best with sheer pieces in muted tones.
Graphic Clash – Don’t be afraid to clash a little. A few black pieces will keep it chic.
Stripes x 2 – Easiest way to ease into print mixing is stripes on stripes
Color Theory – Jazz up your office wardrobe with playful colors and prints.
Beginner Level – Hesitant to go try the trend? Add a patterned scarf with a pair of printed pants for subtle contrast.
Pro Level – If you’re ready to go all out on the other hand, pick the most wildly opposite pieces in your closet and own it.
