You KNOW I love a good print clash (stripes are totally a neutral right?)

But I also know it’s one of those “fasssshun” things that many people are a little nervous about trying.

So I want to give you a few simple tips on how to get your print-clash on, and show you a few of my favourite ways to do it!

Match the colours…

I use a basic rule of thumb that the two prints have some sort of common theme to them, usually colour.

So in the outfit above, the tee has a black stripe, and the dress has black detail in the print.

It helps provide a common thread through your look, so it looks more deliberate than just picking up two random pieces off your floor haha

Here’s a few more details of this print clash look…

But contrast the print

So what I mean by this is, pair two prints that have a different “type” together – like stripes (geometric) with a floral (soft and feminine).

Stripes tend to be one of the prints that I use in almost any print-clash outfit, like I said, they are practically a neutral right?

You want your two prints to look different from each other – this drama is what makes a great print clash.

Or just actually do whatever you feel like doing

This is my philosophy on style in general, but when it comes to print-clashing, the only thing you NEED is confidence!

If you think you can pull it off, you’ll pull it off! If you love it, that’s the only persons opinion that matters remember.
