Printed outfits are timelessly classic items. Today we will discuss about how to wear printed items to make this summer more colorful.
How to Style up a Printed Fashion Staple?
Prints with Plain: Absolutely Flawless!
Are you trying a printed single piece for the first time? The safest way is to wear it with the variety of neutral shades. It balances the look and the focus remains on the printed items.
When it is about pairing prints with plain, it would not be wrong to just stick with black and white. ▼
In addition to black and white, there are several other neutral colors that look great with prints. These might include the hues like gray, ivory, beige, or dark shades that are close to black, such as deep blue. ▼
One of the most popular techniques used by many fashion designers is: The color of the plain item is picked from the colors that are present in the printed items—in short matched colors. ▼
If you do not pick one of the colors of the print, how would it look? A model in the image below chose a color that was not included in the printed skirt. And the two singles seemed out of place. Compare both images and see the difference. ▼
Feminine Prints with Tough Items
An outfit with floral print always gives a feminine appeal. When it gets paired with graceful and tough items, things turn out to be really special. Check out some tricks with mix.

Relatively speaking, large prints are better than small floral prints. KK walks through a blue-black print dress. Seems refreshing! ▼
This set that Victoria Beckham recently wore is also the way to go. ▼
This small floral dress too looks eye-catching. ▼
Those who do not have much fashion sense about picking the right color combos must opt for the simplest combo of black and white print. ▼
The two colors on the printed item should preferably be bright and dark. For example, bright orange with deep blue. ▼
If both are bright, the texture of the clothes will be more demanding. For example, blue-and-white printed clothes are quite manageable. Jenny’s blue-and-white printed skirt is particularly good-looking. ▼
Blue and white porcelain style is also trendy. ▼
A brighter combo of red/pink and green is hard to manage for middle age women. Unless you are very stylish and good looking.▼

One-piece Printed Suit
As I said before, as compared to solid color single product, the texture of the print is more demanding. So, it is better to choose a good fabric with a good cut to make it easier to pull off.
In terms of style, it is best to select loose printed items. However, it may give the look of a “sleeping skirt”. How to manage this issue? According to my observation, the long skirt looks best with a slimming waist, and the short skirt looks best without a slim fit waistline.
Wearing a loosely fit maxi dress is not an easy task. It has its own requirements for getting a perfect figure and overall look. ▼

When you are about to wear a printed skirt, opt for enough material to get the flouncy feel. ▼
Too thin and light fabrics in fancy colors and cumbersome ruffles are really eye-catching. ▼
There are many kinds of printed items, but the most difficult to pull off are the printed trousers, especially the ones in bright colors. It is quite tricky to match it. Skinny people like Olivia love to wear it, and it suits her as well. Contrarily, heavy legs look worse in printed trousers. ▼
However, the printed shorts are worth trying. Pairing with a casual plain blouse in summer is an easy way to produce a cool look.
Prints with Clashing Colors
Those who have a stronger ability to control their colors schemes, can try to go against the basic color. In fact, it is not complicated, as long as the main colors in a print are coordinated with each other. The point is that the colors of printed items are not too cluttered.

Sometimes what inspires you the most is a style that is “good-looking” and ‘interesting’. So just go with the flow. It’s also very important to consider the above-mentioned methodologies to try new and bolder looks. There may be unexpected surprises—who knows.
