Mix Your Prints

February 13, 2013 3:33 pm
Written by: Whitley Adkins Hamlin
I don't consider myself a trendy dresser, personally. I am most attracted to pieces that will stand the time. However, while trends come and go, if they are good at what they do, they likely make more than a few laps around the fashion race track.

One thing that is hot for spring is mixing your prints ... the brighter, the bolder, the louder, the better, and I couldn't love this more. As a wardrobe stylist, people ask me all the time about my personal style. In particular, they want to know how I got it. I am attracted to one of a kind, statement making pieces that I feel pretty sure I will NOT see on anyone else. That's correct. Read me, as much as I love Tory Burch as a designer, and yes, I do LOVE her work, we do not all need the same cute, little pair of flats. I think I've used this example before, but it is one we see time and time again in Charlotte. Don't wear the same thing everybody else is wearing, and you will be sure to turn heads.  One way to accomplish this is by mixing your prints. Here is a great article on print mixing from my fashion bible, Lucky Magazine, and here and here are examples of my own print mixing.  

I hope you like, and thanks for reading!!

I just gave mixing two really zany prints a whirl on Friday night...and I LOVED how fresh and unexpected the look came across as! Can't wait to revisit my closet and mix and NOT match everything in there.
Thanks Whitley :)
