The Power of Prints:
No one wakes up in the morning and says, “I think I’ll dress kind of drab today.” Let’s face it, no matter how we’re feeling each day, we still want our outfits to say fabulous! The most fun (and nearly effortless) way to do this is to add patterned garments to any look.
You’ve heard of adding a pop of color…well now it’s time to add a Pop of Prints! Whether you’re hitting the town for weekend shopping or heading to work for the week, there’s never a time when a little pattern can’t absolutely spice up any outfit.These prints can be incorporated with tops, like the examples pictured below, or even bottoms, scarves and jackets.
Test it out: Put on solid bottoms and a solid top– button down, sweater, tank– and take a picture. Now change that top to something with some flavor– aztec, florals, animal print– take another picture. Pic Stitch the photos together side-by-side and ask yourself which makes you look more welcoming, cheerful and upbeat. Take this challenge to the next level and post the photo on one of your social media sites. Ask your followers: left or right? solid or patterned? I bet that the consensus will be unanimous.
There are endless possibilities when choosing to pair prints with solids. If you’re looking for a more lively look, brighter solids and busier prints are the way to go. If you’re looking to make the pop more subtle, go with a darker color on the bottom (it’ll really make the print on top stand out). The beauty of this look is that it transcends across all four seasons– florals in the springtime, geos in the fall; you simply can’t go wrong. Try your pop of patterns look for an entire week and watch the compliments roll in.
