STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Printed Perfection

Prints are an everlasting trend that will always be exciting to the eye. They are also a great way to spice up a simple outfit by giving the look some texture. When I first noticed this Fashionista’s Houndstooth printed pants, I couldn’t help but be intrigued. Just by pairing a solid-colored sweater and black buckle booties with her patterned pants made for a simple yet stylish outfit.

There are many ways to incorporate prints into an outfit. Many times Fashionistas will pair a simple look with a more exciting purse, scarf or other accessory. Prints can sometimes make putting an outfit together difficult when you don’t have the right clothes to pair them with. But this Fashionista’s black and white printed pants are very versatile and can be worn with many different looks! Houndstooth is a classic print that has been around for years, and I love that it’s still in style.

The key to working with specific prints is to think simple. Mixing too many patterns and colors together is never a good thing, so it is best to let your print do all the talking! This Fashionista paired her pattern with a solid burgundy scoop-neck sweater and black booties. Although prints can be tricky, there is no excuse not to give them a try! Pair an appealing print with clothing items of one color and you have an outfit. When working with a multi-colored print, find items with basic colors within the print to tie your look together.
