The Do’s and Don’ts of wearing prints!

Pattern play!!

Prints need precision, or they can go very, very wrong. Here are few fashion faux pas to steer away from.

Rest the statement shirt: If you have one loud statement shirt or blouse do not keep repeating it to occasions. Chances are that you’ll attract a nickname or become that guy with “that *add your print* shirt”. Instead invest on a couple more?

No-no to monochrome dressing: Wearing the same print or even prints of same size all over will lead to sartorial tragedy. Safest to keep either your top or your bottom plain. Even if you want to wear print on print, combine different sizes. One is fine. Two is daring. Three is just risky!

Don’t let the patterns overpower you. Make sure what you are wearing is not wearing you instead. Also, more importantly, wear it with confidence; nobody likes a fronted attitude.

Dress for the occasion. While wild prints work for holidays and weekend parties, they might not be your fit for a wedding or a sober event. You do not want to steal the groom’s day in the sun! Go for more subtle prints if it is a wedding closet you are shopping for and save the vivid ones for the bachelor party.

Neutrals are your friends. Not always, but more often than not, loud prints look best when paired with neutrals. Mild tones set a canvas background for the prints to take center stage.
