The tricky trend I have finally mastered

Clashing prints can be a tricky trend to master and its taken me years of outfit combinations to work out what I like together and what I don't. It really is a sartorial game of trial and error. In my wardrobe, there are some clash no-brainers: stripes pair perfectly with leopard print, look cute with florals and can be edged up with camo, all while requiring minimal thought. I love a stripe and polka dot mix too, but for it to look chic you need to play with the scale, keep your stripes slim and your polka dots large, or visa versa. A fabulous pattern mix is playful and can add an injection of fun to your outfits and if you're in the mood to stand out, then styling your animal print midi skirt with your favourite Breton tee and a splash of red lippie is the way to do it. 

This outfit is a combination of it all: camo print, polka dots and an aztec-esque pattern in the form of a 90s wrap skirt. I love it. Modernised with my chunky biker boots and an of-the-moment baker boy cap, it's colour and print all rolled into one look. Of course, with a vintage  feel too. Both the jacket and the skirt were bought in charity shops back in the UK and have become permanent favourites in my wardrobe. 

What are your favourite print clashes?

My favourite print at the moment has to be polka dots so when I am on my charity shop raids, I'll always head straight for those classic dots.  




  1. Such a lovely outfit, you looks so great in them
