HOW TO MIX STRIPE PRINTS

Often wearing stripes can be tricky, so knowing how to mix stripe prints takes some finesse, but it’s still a fun look to put together. Whether horizontal, vertical or diagonal, there are so many ways to way stripes. While this may seem daunting, it also means there’s a look for every lady, once you find the flattering print.

KEEP COLOURS MINIMAL

This look features a classic style horizontal stripe knit top. And while this piece would also work stylishly with black bottoms or denim, a more striking look is pairing it with a cross stripe pencil skirt. Not only does the top and skirt nicely contrast in print but also in colour. Monochrome is a stylish way to go when mixing stripes. Likewise, great advice when styling bold prints, is to keep the number of colours in the mix minimal. This is a elegant way to keep the look cohesive and not too clashing on the eyes. Thankfully because the prints are bold, the outfit pieces can be more simple with a top, skirt & complementing strappy heels. Layered with a block black blazer, this look is suitable for work meetings, brunch and evening dinner dates.

EASY PIECES

Although wearing double stripes or wearing stripes on stripes is an easy way to mix stripes, try pairing stripes of differing prints to create interest. Like wearing stripes and checks, the easiest tip is to wear the boldest print on the bottom. This will avoid a top heavy look. Another great idea is a multi-stripe print dress, because it simply does all the mix print work for you. Ultimately, mixing stripes is actually a simple outfit that lets the prints do all the work and it is definitely a look to earn your style stripes.
