Each season gets with itself new trends and this year it is time for the print on print. With summers approaching, there is a lot that can be done with this trend. Come, hop on!
How to wear the print on print trend & look gorgeous this summer.
- Mix simple prints
Begin with matching simple prints, like an abstract printed top with a chevron skirt or striped trousers. You can also let one print dominate in terms of colour and size.
Playing around with multiple designs and patterns will give a messy unmatched look and you don’t want that happening.
- 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.
You could also go for a bold and peppy look and add a pop of colours in contrasting hues. With minimum make-up and dainty accessories, you could rock this look for work.
- Match colours instead of prints
Choosing separates from the same colour family is a good idea.
With summers knocking at the door, our love for kurtas, especially indigo has revived. Wear a handloom kurta with a similar coloured bottom wear and be comfortable all day at work.
Wearing prints with similar undertones works great for a desi chic look. To amp up the look add some silver jewelry and lots of kohl.
- Stripes are the new neutrals
When doing the print on print trend, you should know that stripes are the new neutrals. They go very well with different patterns and prints.
Mix horizontal or vertical striped shirt with a floral skirt for a retro edgy look. Wear it for a brunch with your girl gang or to work and break the monotony of boring formal wear.
- Mix 2 types of same prints
Paisleys, florals, or stripes, there is a lot that you can play around in this segment. Wear similar printed palazzos and kurtas and add a contrast coloured dupatta for added charm.
Pairing kurtas and bottomwear of different weaves of chikankari will also look beautiful. Throw a phulkari dupatta or a leheriya stole, and you’d be good to go.
The one thing that you need to be careful about is that going overboard on the print on print trend is very easy, so take it slow.
Experiment, fail and learn. Do what you love and learn if it gets overboard or understated. Life can accommodate all types of days. Happy prints to you.
