Print clashing is a trend I have never been brave enough to tackle. I’m not sure whether it’s the fear of looking over-the-top or to put it simply looking like a complete maniac. Print clashing can look incredible when done right and to do it right you need to find the perfect balance between bold and brilliant.
Genius takes a human form in the likes of Olivia Paleremo when print clashing. The striking floral print of the pants captures your attention which then draws interest to the mismatch of prints. I love this outfit however I feel that the look could be a little ‘bottom heavy’ and could have potentially been balanced better with a pointed yellow heel and a printed top instead.
In contrast to Palermo’s, print clashing is taking place in all clothing aspects of this outfit. I love the look of clashed florals as they have the ability subtly compliment one another. The turquoise bag accentuates the blue of the pants and the orange of the pant flowers compliment the red tones of the florals on the jacket.
For some, pairing a print clash with additional bold accessories could be too much, but I say no! Print clashing is all about making a statement so why not add in your favourite colour and statement pieces to your outfit? Hopefully sometime soon I will be able to pluck up the courage to clash some prints.. Wish me luck!
