Clashing prints trend with The Vintage Set
Traditionally, fashion experts instruct everyone to avoid clashing colours. We have been told that they are too distracting, hard to look at and just plain ugly.
However, clashing prints was hot on the fashion radar last season, and have consistently turned up on runways and are beloved by stylists and it-girls all around the world. So, it’s time to break the old rules and make new ones!
The Vintage Set online shop embraces fashion variety and brings us the most desirable vintage garments from the 1920s to the 1980s.
The range of fabulous printed blouses and skirts – not to mention accessories – is just what you need to try this daring trend at affordable prices.
You just need to think about fresh combinations, using these pieces to be trendy with a truly individual twist.
The selected vintage and our precious picks about how to properly mix and match different fabrics and motifs will give your outfit a fashion upgrade!
Select a colour
Try to pick two prints that have one colour in common, like a floral print with a blue base, clashed with another print that has some colour in it. Tying in tonally coordinated pieces pulls the whole outfit together, as seen above.
Select a mood
Play easily with a neutral print
If in doubt, pick a bright print and team it with a simpler neutral print, such as camouflage or breton stripes in black and white. Choose a neutral colour as a home base which will make it a safer choice and tie it all in nicely.
Using the same print in different scales or colours
If you like a standard pattern like polka dot, try to match up two garments with the same motif in a different size or colour. This is an easy way to not go wrong. In addition, keep it structured: having strong, tailored lines will help show a chic figure.
Match prints with printed accessories
Don’t want to wear a totally patterned look? Try clashing leopard print shoes with floral pants or a graphic print bag with a polka dot top – you get the picture.
