Head-to-toe prints maybe one of the biggest trends to come out of the runway early last year, however, it remains one of the most intimidating to attempt. It needn’t be if you keep in mind these few simple pointers. One place to start is to ensure your top and bottom pieces match. With the plethora of affordable printed pieces on the high street, this shouldn’t be too hard to achieve. If you are wearing two different prints, choose the same colour scheme, this will ensure cohesion in your look. The printed suit may look incredible on the runway but it doesn’t necessarily translate on the streets. Another way to get the look is to utilise separates. A printed blouse and skirt will look just as chic. Keep the silhouette simple, this will ensure your look is streamlined even if your print is overly complicated. Limit the number of print styles, stick to two at most. If you aren’t quite ready to sport this trend, you can always break it up with a solid coloured pant or jacket.
The lady featured in today’s post, whom I met in Brisbane during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival, has certainly embraced this trend. She looks incredibly put together with her printed over coat and matching trousers. I love the play on volume in the coat and her white gladiator heels complement the look beautifully.
