Wild Prints and White

When it comes to wearing prints, I have been pretty safe. Typically I'll stick to polka dots or stripes and add color or mix the prints to make it a bit more exciting. As I look at other prints, I think about the best way to ease into wearing them. The easiest way (for me), would be to just add a white piece with them. I always find that if the outfit still seems too loud, a blazer helps to tone down the print just a little.

Normally I tend to shy away from bold prints like the t-shirt above but when paired with simple white jeans and sandals, I think this is an easy look that anyone can wear. The statement necklace is definitely a new take on the statement necklaces that I have seen and adds a little edge to this look.

The only thing wild about this outfit is the skirt. Every other piece is something that I think would be easy to wear with other pieces in your closet and they help tone done the wild print in the skirt.

After doing a little online 'browsing,' I think I may branch out a little and start adding some funkier prints to my wardrobe. I think it is a great way to add interest to your outfit.

What prints are your favorite? Are you a wild one or do you like to play it safe?

  1. That skirt is incredible. That's exactly what I like to do...choose one funky piece and then keep it neutral with my other pieces.

  2. I agree with you, I prefer to combine a single printed piece with the others in black or in white. Safe but always a success :)

  3. I really like the second look- that's a print I could maybe pull off :). I tend to stick to basic brights and simple patterns, so I'd have to ease into these bolder looks :)

  4. I usually stick to more basic prints like stripes/polka dots but I love how you kept the rest of the outfit simple so the print isn't overwhelming.

  13. I love how you mixed the prints with the white. I would have paired the top with blue jeans, but now that I see it with white, it's so much better!

  24. I like mixing it up...prints are fun but I don't know if I can combine too many strong prints together. I love how you paired them with white above. It really helps them pop and well, everything looks good with white! :)
