Print Perfect

Intimidating, loud, garish are just some of the adjectives used to describe prints. But they can also be elegant, diverse and chic. Who better to look to for inspiration than the doyenne of prints for inspiration – none other than Anna Wintour herself.

Create your own style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others – Anna Wintour.

 

Pucci, Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Celine – you name the designer print, she’s flaunted them all – no matter how big, small, intricate or bold. But you don’t have to be Ms Wintour to make prints work for you. Here are some of our tips and tricks to get you print-perfect:

Colour Code

Complement your printed piece of clothing by keeping the rest of your outfit in the same colour scheme. Alternatively, break the print by choosing items with panels of plain colour included, either a colour from the print or a contrasting colour.

Head-To-Toe

Head-to-toe prints are usually a big no-no, but it’s a look that’s made a fashionable come back. The most popular interpretation of this trend is the printed blazer and pants combination. Anchor the look with a neutral shirt and accessories.

Clashing

Popular as it may be, clashing prints are quite hard to pull off. Make this look work by picking prints in similar colours, balancing out their sizes (big prints with small prints) and pairing funkier prints with timeless ones like Breton stripes.

Neutrals

Neutral separates or accessories will help let your clothes shine when it comes to how to wear prints stylishly. A strong print paired with white, black, grey or pewter separates can really make prints pop.

Accessories

This is the simplest tip for how to wear prints, especially for those who are just starting out with prints. Add a print shoe here or a print clutch there, and voilà, you’ve got an instantly updated outfit.
