Outfit Du Jour- Prints!

Last night I stepped out of my comfort zone and wore a head-to-toe print. I think the last time I wore the same print all over was when I was 6! I honestly felt like I was wearing pyjamas and felt a bit 'off' but the look got A LOT of attention and compliments - I must have pulled it off well! 

This season prints are REALLY ON TREND but it takes ALOT of courage and confidence to wear them. If you can bear to wear crazy prints, then here are a few pointers to pulling them off with perfection. The main advice I can give you is to let the print be the main focal point of your WHOLE outfit! 

  • Wear a nude, white or black shoe and bag- the prints are bold enough and don't need anything to clash with them
  • Keep your hair and makeup minimal- flowing curls or high bun
  • Accessorize but nothing overbearing- if you wear long earrings, make sure the colours match with the prints. I wore a necklace with the same colours as the print
  • I think they look good with a black or white blazer or sweater to 'neutralize the print'
  • If you really cannot see yourself wearing head to toe print, wear either a printed top OR a printed bottom (pants, skirt or shorts) with a neutral black, white, or beige top or bottom. 
  • Have fun and choose a print that suits you!
