Style Advice of the Week

We all know that mixing prints is not an ordinary task. Those who see beyond color-blocking and monochromatic trends and go further to achieve what is engaging to the eyes are what I like to call fashion blenders.

Fashion Blenders break rules and see fashion as a way to rebel and express themselves. Every outfit is considered a canvas. However, it is not a matter of combining different colors and prints. It is a thoughtful process of choosing the right pieces of clothing that blend together to become one beautiful masterpiece of splashing colors.

This Fashionista proves that when one is pushed to come out of the comfort zone, dressing up becomes an exciting challenge. She mixed animal print for the top and a kaleidoscope print for the bottom. Because the colors of the outfit are slightly opaque and not so bright, it is easier to combine pieces without looking like a flashy mess.

If you decide to recreate this fashionable canvas, we’ve got you covered. For the top, let’s stick with the jungle fever. A snake print shirt with metallic tones sounds like the perfect match. On the other hand, if we really want the wow factor projected on our outfit, a red shirt with leopard print is the way to go. As for the bottom, why don’t we pair the top with the hottest trend this season: plaid! Don’t thank me, thank ASOS for having the most amazing skinny pants. Speaking of hot trends, a camo print pant can add a tougher feel to your outfit. Also, the earthy tones are easy to combine with tons of prints.

We are almost done. To finish this explosive look, add neutral or metallic accessories. This Fashionista was clever enough to let the clothes speak for themselves. Therefore, this pair of metallic nude ballerinas from Zara will be the final ingredient to your fashion blend.

Stand out and be the fashion blender among your friends. Because every girl needs a friend who can push the boundaries of fashion and encourage others to experiment outside of the comfort zone.
