Who says fashion has to be so serious? Not us – or our favorite Brits over at Boden. Take a cue from our cheeky friends and make standout prints your new thing. Here are a few ways to master the look.
Making a head-to-toe statement has never been so easy. Just throw on a printed maxi. Stick to simple accessories – a sleek pair of metallic sandals keeps things from looking too busy.
Mix & Match
Don’t run away scared just yet. Combining prints is actually a piece of cake. Just follow these three rules:
- When in doubt, keep it simple. Stripes and dots are always a no-fail match.
- Stick to one color family. You can’t go wrong with prints in the same hue.
- Play with scale. Balance a bold-print skirt with a delicate-print top.
Forget what you’ve heard about stripes. When done right, they’re more flattering than you think. For added curves, go with wide, horizontal stripes. For a lengthening effect, try thin, vertical lines.
