From navy to sapphire, to cobalt and cerulean, the color blue never fails to make its mark every season. In fashion, it has undeniably inspired collections worldwide, whether it’s for the warmer months or colder seasons. Try this look: Wear a medium blue top with a much darker shade of pants, such as navy or dark wash denim jeans. Or pair an all-blue jumpsuit with a denim jacket. The suggestions seem endless!

2. Get pretty in pink

Ultra feminine, the color pink always brings out the fun and girly side in every lady. Not only does pink fit in your childhood wardrobe color scheme, but it can be a great addition to your wardrobe as a grown woman today. For example, wear a white jean to match a pink plaid top or a pastel hoodie. Perfect for the colder months ahead, top a grey turtleneck and a black jean with a pink fringe cardigan.

3. A splash of red over a printed bottom

Red is a color of passion and excitement. But at the same time, it can complement a more laid back or less festive look. Besides going for the classic all-red ensemble, try pairing a red top with a relaxed printed pant for more casual days. And if you’re looking to impress in that big presentation, go for the fitted red knit top and plaid pencil skirt with pumps to catch everybody’s attention in the room.

4. Colorful and preppy in plaid

The great thing with plaid is that they’re not too busy or too simple, and they also go well when mixed with different colors. They’re great for casual weekends, dinner parties, and office staples. For a cozy yet chic outfit, pair a plaid belted poncho with a colored pant in a muted shade. With this, you’ll balance the right about of print and a slight pop of color.

5. Style a printed duster coat

A good duster coat is a viable loungewear option and an excellent piece to invest in for lazy days. To wear it outside on different occasions, match it with the right elements such as neutral pants. If you’re taking it out on a much colder day, wear a turtleneck underneath with leggings. Accessorize accordingly with dangling earrings, a subtle smokey eye, and glossy lips. No one would be able to tell it’s your lazy day!

6. Match dressy pants with a solid cardigan

It’s always exciting to wear dressy printed pants. In this case, we’re looking at a stunning floral pant that can be balanced out with a comfy and stylish cardigan in a solid color. Most of the time, we gravitate towards focusing on the prints for our tops. But, this look is nothing but a refreshing way to wear your patterns. For business attire, pair a floral bottom with a dressy top and a colored blazer. For dinner plans, change into a cami and throw on a soft knit cardigan to simply ease out of your office look.

7. Throw on a solid cardigan over a printed dress

Last but not least, one style tip we have to leave you with is: Balance is key. When it comes to wearing an outfit with a lot going on like ruffles and prints, make sure that you balance it with something neutral and solid. This way, you will look effortlessly put-together. Try layering your floral printed dress with a solid cardigan, then accessorize with simple dainty jewelry and finish it off with neutral-colored sandals or heels.


Fashionable and Fearless

You might not hear this every day, but mixing prints is truly an art. Perhaps, it could even be an acquired taste. It may be a tad intimidating to try this trend, but even the shy types can benefit from it. Whether you’re new to styling your clothes or you do this daily, it’s also still important to know your personal style and find what you’re comfortable with. So, get ready to tackle this trend with these simple guidelines. 

Find a floral print you like and mix a color to go with it and keep the rest of your outfit neutral. Later, you can try something else like plaid or animal prints. And if you’re not keen on mixing patterns like polka dots with houndstooth, stick to where you are. When you’re mixing prints, keep the proportions in mind. Depending on your taste, you may gravitate to smaller or bigger shapes.

The idea is to try the trend out to see if you look and feel great. Keep it effortlessly cool and laid back with jeans and sneakers on your casual days. Remember that with the right styling, personal preferences, comfort, and proper execution, you can create a masterpiece of an outfit any day.
