While I usually lean towards colourful experimental outfits, in January I somehow get very easily sucked into an easy (okay, lazy) styling routine. When the Holidays are over and it's so cold outside that you basically want to wrap yourself in several blankets and be done with it, why bother mixing it up? Because it'll make you feel so much better, that's why! So in an effort to break this habit of plain January dressing, here's a super easy idea to spice things up a little: wear prints on prints! If this seems a bit difficult, these little tricks will make it so much easier:

1 / BASICS

Make sure that one of the printed pieces is a pretty basic one (such as this pair of jeans I picked up at Enes), with a classic cut and/or fabric. A silk printed pleated skirt plus silk blouse = NO, your favourite pair of printed denim plus silk blouse = YES.

2 / CLASHING PRINTS

This might seem weird, but prints that significantly differ actually work better than similar ones (and there's scientific proof it's flattering!). So don't go too matchy-matchy, but rather opt for seriously clashing prints.

3 / NEUTRAL ACCESSORIES

To avoid taking the focus off your key pieces-with-print and ending up with a too 'crowded' outfit you want to opt for neutral accessories, such as a colour block bag or black patent leather booties.

 

Pretty easy, right? Let me know if you have any other styling struggles you'd like some tips for, so I can tackle them in future posts! :)

Loving this look, Sofie! I've never been super comfortable with print mixing, so this is a great and easy how-to. Another styled look (or looks) I'd love to see you tackle is winter layering basics. I feel like I'm either under-dressed (and cold) or I look like a marshmallow. Help!

Thanks for sharing!
