Both printed pants and printed shirts are a basic staple for any Fashionista. However, if you’re anything like me, you always stick with the same basic combination—a plain shirt with printed pants or plain pants with a printed shirt. Sometimes, attempting to find something else to go with your prints is just too frustrating, but this Fashionista made it clear that a little effort goes a long way.

This Fashionista quite honestly revolutionized my entire perspective on prints. She boldly decided to pair printed pants with a printed shirt, an outfit that could have ended in disaster but ended in something wonderful. Instead of clashing, the two different prints work together and complement each other. The black background of her shirt manages to work with the black detailing on her pants, which brings together the entire outfit without overwhelming it with excessive amounts of black and red. It’s the perfect contrast!

The genius of this ensemble is completed with a simple pair of black flat sandals, a wise choice on this Fashionista’s part. Simple shoes round the look off nicely and tone down the rest of the bold pieces in the look. She accessorizes with a basic white Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, an understated piece of jewelry that blends in with the white design on her shirt.
