Live Your Most Beautiful Life
Spring/Summer 2012 fashions pack a lot of prints. Some of the hottest prints for the upcoming season are nature, animal, kaleidoscopic, geometrical, and combined prints. You may be overwhelmed by the thought of wearing print, but you don't have to be. Learn how to wear these hot prints, and don't let them wear you, with these tips:
Don't overwhelm the print palette: For example, you can sport a solid color blouse with a print skirt, or vice versa. The contrast between the solid color and the print is enough to subtly make the print stand out like a gorgeous piece of art.
Streamline the silhouette: Don't "busy" up your look with too much draping, layering and ruffling of various prints. Allow one or two prints to gently complement your frame by wearing a fitted print piece. That will help you wear the print, and stop the print from overpowering and wearing you.
Don't forget print accessories: If you want to mix up prints with your outfit but want to play it safe, work some print accessories into your look. Consider bracelets, necklaces, earrings, or purses with cool prints that don't necessarily match the same print you are wearing but fall within the same color scheme. Mixing and matching prints between your clothing and accessories is a hot way to stay trendy in 2012.
