  1. Balance prints with a solid colour

Balance the look by wearing an element of solid colour. This would enhance the prints and would give the outfit a more poised look. Choose neutral colours like beige, black, or white for a safe bet. This is great for those who would play it safe. Go step by step. Pair a striking print with neutral colours and then go print on print.
