3 ways to wear the print-clashing trend

 

Truly in tune with the season’s penchant for all things extra, spring’s savviest dressers are eschewing minimalism in favour of a more playful look, courtesy of clashing prints. Scary in theory, yes, but super chic in reality and since anything goes here, it’s remarkably difficult to get it wrong. Whether you’re drawn to florals or animal prints, bold hues or subtle earth tones, the slew of prints on offer this season means there’s something for everyone. So forget any misconception of committing a fashion faux pas, this trend is so wrong it’s right, we promise.

Look 1:

Geometric prints


If you feel like throwing some shapes this spring, look to geometric and graphic patterns. Mixed prints in the same tonal range look more put-together than not, so use a colour scheme that runs throughout the outfit for a more cohesive clash. If you’re not typically a 'loud' dresser, opt for one that's more neutral like a stripe – it’s easy to style with a ditsy geometric, floral or leopard print because it's so understated. Draw on block colour shoes and chunky gold hoops to anchor your outfit.

 

 

 

Look 2:

Animal Instinct

 

They’ve been stalking the street-style scene for some time now but animal print is set to rule the fashion kingdom for the foreseeable. There’s an urban safari of animal print accessories out there this spring so you can really go wild with your choice. The neutral tones of zebra, leopard and any other zoological motif look great when spliced together and when teamed with a bright, block colour. Pull the look together with a graphic tee, your favourite denim, and cat-eye sunglasses.




 

 

 

Look 3:

Florals. For spring


So florals for spring may not be ground-breaking (thank you, Miranda Priestly), but thanks to our new-found penchant for spirited print clashing they’re looking more exciting than ever before, with everything from acid bright renditions to vintage and chintzy motifs back on the menu. Yes, that’s right – your grandmother’s living room is now right on trend. Whether you prefer delicate micro-florals or their grown-up and blown-up counterpart, clashing florals (particularly in boldfaced colours) have a seriously modern appeal. Team different florals together or clash them with geometric prints for a little-less-twee twist.
