Pretty in patterns

Wearing prints is a bold choice, but we say go for it! You should showcase your personality through your clothes and if that involves prints, then you should showcase them. Mixing prints is only sometimes a good look but fashion is all subjective, so try what suits you. To find out how to style a patterned skirt or how to style patterned pants, continue reading our guide below.

How to mix prints

When considering wearing mixed prints, it’s important to start with the colours that you’re planning on wearing. Ensuring that all the colours work together is just as important as how the patterns themselves match.

When pairing prints, try not to wear two completely contrasting colours. If you do, it won’t match, it will just look unusual. For example, if you wear something bright, like these KIRA Hot Pink Trousers, ensure that you add something darker to the outfit to match.

To make it easier in the future, a better way to manage your outfits involves keeping the different prints you possess in the same colour palette. For instance, wear the same coloured clothing but in different shades, like a darker skirt with a brighter top.

How to style a patterned skirt

If you love wearing a patterned skirt but you’re never sure how to style it, you’re in luck because we’ve compiled a few tips. Our first is to wear a graphic t-shirt with your patterned skirt, like this MERABI Logo T-Shirt. You can’t go wrong with a graphic tee and a patterned skirt because they can be worn casually or even for a night out socialising.

A blazer is another great option if you’re wondering how to style a patterned skirt. Blazers and jackets are fantastic for wearing to almost any social occasion and can be worn at the office too. Try this KIRA Blush Blazer with one of your darker-coloured patterned skirts.

If the weather is a bit chilly, consider wearing a jumper with your patterned skirt. Mix and match colours throughout the autumn and winter seasons to showcase your personality and style, while still remaining warm. You can also make the skirt a feature piece in your look.

How to style patterned pants

If a skirt isn’t really what you’re looking for in your outfit, consider wearing some trousers. Figuring out how to style patterned pants, though, is quite easy. You can elongate your frame by pairing your trousers with some heels. In terms of footwear, when wearing patterned pants you should try to avoid wearing boots because it won’t help your figure.

The size of the print is important too. Try not to wear something with too large a print (unless you really want to, of course) because it can actually overshadow your look. Opt for a smaller print size and pair with a graphic t-shirt, jumper or blazer to make your outfit pop.

With patterned trousers, you want them to be a part of your outfit, not the main object. Try to get them blending into your overall look rather than overshadowing every other item of clothing you’re wearing.

The final thing to think about when navigating how to style patterned pants is your confidence. If you’re unsure about matching printed trousers with a printed shirt, wear a solid-coloured top. It’s an understated look but you may feel much more confident.

A classic, solid-coloured top that you could pair with patterned trousers is this TAYLOR White Shirt. You could also consider adding a little more colour to your outfit with this NICOLE Blue Top. This timeless essential is made from luxurious satin and is lined for an ultra-smooth and comfortable fit.
