Lets just get right to the point here, prints can be intimidating. They can make a loud statement and don’t always go with everything like the beloved black turtleneck. But that doesn’t mean we should avoid them at all costs. They say to try something that scares you everyday, well today that is a pair of plaid pants! Now lets dive in.
Tip No. 1
“When in doubt, go neutral”
It’s no secret that neutrals are the perfect paring to nearly anything. But when it comes to prints we tend to think we have to add a pop, or pull a color from the print. But little do we realize, the print itself adds all the pop you could ever need.
Tip No. 2
“Stay true to you”
Just because you have this new crazy printed piece does not mean you need to reinvent your style. Think of how you would normally style a piece of that nature and go from there. For example, for this look I thought of a typical outfit I might wear, jeans, a graphic t, sneakers, and a coat (because its freezing cold), and then swapped in the pants.
Tip No. 3
“Sometimes less isn’t more”
Don’t be afraid to mix two statement pieces into one outfit. Though this can be tricky, at the base level it is rather easy. Simply adding a graphic tee or a textured piece (ruffles, chunky knits, fun fabrics, etc) can add a little more spice to your look.
Tip No. 4
“Fake it ’till you make it.”
Although you might feel a a little uncomfortable in your new bold look, don’t be afraid to rock it. As cheesy as it may sound, confidence is the perfect accessory to any look. When you’re confident and feel good in your outfit, you look 10x better! And an added bonus, people are less likely to question your boldness. But hey, if they do, you wont even notice with all that confidence!
