Here’s how to make a style statement wearing our favourite trend – clashing prints

Pairing prints is a trend that will never go away. It takes some confidence and you have to know a few key tricks to get the trend completely right, but don’t worry we have your back.

Florals, animal prints, stars and stripes – a good print makes a great outfit. But what happens when you put all your prints together? Absolute style magic if you put them together correctly that is.

It’s easy to overdo it though, so we shopped the best prints to show you how to put them together:

Accessorize with prints

Wear a cute printed dress and use accessories to pile on the prints. This is the easiest and safest way to style this trend. A printed belt tied at the waist is great for your body and looks amazing with contrasting printed heels.

Go bold or go home

Take clashing prints to the max with printed tops and bottoms. The key to this kind of outfit is pairing a light coloured print with dark colours. Rock a white printed top with a dark printed skirt and vice versa. Luckily leopard print can be thrown on with almost everything.

Animal planet

Animal prints are the best prints for this trend. Not only do they go with almost everything, but they come in various colours you can wear together. Pair zebra with leopard and pink animal print with classic brown. Throw on another print like this gorgeous Aztec strap bag.

The printed suit

Pair a gorgeous pair of printed pants with a clashing jacket, blazer or cardigan. Wear a plain black or white vest to break up the clashing prints and wear neutral accessories as well – you don’t want too many prints or colours.
