STEPPING OUTSIDE MY COMFORT ZONE WITH CLASHING PRINTS






12 months ago I would have laughed in your face if you had of told me I would be clashing prints in an outfit. Typically I’m pretty damn fussy when it comes to prints let alone clashing them.

 

It all started with this Bec & Bridge Stargazer Playsuit that I bought to wear for an engagement party. It was subtle but the for some reason the stars stole my heart and I’m now obsessed with the print. I’m still testing the waters and prefer to stick with a monochrome palette because it is a little more subtle for a usual neutral dresser like me. That’s probably my biggest tip! If you’re going to try to smash two prints together then consider choosing colours in a similar family that you’re comfy with.

 

I bought this gingham skort because…. Well hello gingham and it’s shorts that look like a skirt? And I love the contrast between the really fine print and the really bold, large stars. It’s not a hard print clash to swallow because of that. Gingham is a really great print to try a print clash with because it goes with printed tees and other louder prints quite effortless.

 

Overall I’m really obsessed with this outfit and cannot wait to try a print clash again. Any tips of epic ways to try it?

    I like the outfit Sarah! You’re right, you do need to pair prints that are from the same colour family. I’ve done it with navy & white stripes & spots before (striped top, spotty skirt) & I received a number of compliments on the outfit. That was the first time I’d clashed prints & it’s given me confidence to do it again sometime.
