Prints and Patterns

Mixing Prints with patterns is the new thing to do. It was only a few years ago, that these two categories “didn’t get along”. January Skyy believes the fashion industry is changing for the better. People are becoming more creative with their ideas, as well as what is and isn’t acceptable. Pushing the limit regarding what to wear is just the same.

When mixing a print with a pattern their has to be some common ground. What is meant by the term common ground is, a theme, color, or fabric that represents both the print and pattern equally. A print or a pattern can also compliment the latter, if done with good taste. The final rule to mixing prints and patterns should be, let one of the two, take center-stage. If both ideas are competing against each other, whether it be too busy in color or same size repeat, this can begin to look messy.

A few examples of prints and patterns working are, Mixing a striped shirt with a vintage printed skirt. Stripes tend to have a simple feel to them so it sitting with a busy pattern should work. Another example is pairing a plaid skirt with a polka dot top. If the dots on the blouse are huge, the print will not compete with the plaid pattern of the skirt. Also try to stay within the same color palette (i.e; black and white).

If one follows the above rules, then pairing prints with patterns should be fun and new. This ultimately gives a person the chance to make the most out of their wardrobe, and who wouldn’t want that?!
