Mixing Prints : Lines and Dots

Mixing prints has been regarded as one of the key trends this season which is fun and little daring at the same time. I love prints and own lots of printed outfits but mixing them together was something I was not very confident to try on until now. I wanted to experiment with something simple and not too busy prints so I thought of mixing lines and dots, i.e. stripes and polka dots. Polka dots and stripes are classics prints in itself and look effortlessly chic when styled together. I particularly like to wear this look with larger stripes and larger dots as it gives more of a  fun & youthful vibe to our personality.

Here, I am wearing a top with black & white horizontal stripes(previously styled here) over a black & white polka dots skirt. One of the safest and easiest ways to mix print is to choose prints in same color family like black and white for this particular outfit. I kept rest of my accessories neutral by added some black tights, black heels and a pair of black & white hoop earrings. Wearing black and white can be boring but mixing prints can definitely elevate the outfit adding fun and fresh feel to it.

Stay Stylish!
