4 Tips For Styling Prints

Updated: Mar 3, 2020

Working prints into your wardrobe is a great way to inject some fun and personality into your every day style without having to stray too far from your style identity. A good print will enhance your features, style back with your core wardrobe basics and feature the right colour mix to bring your face to life. Mink Pink's newest collection lends itself to all of the above, with a pretty mix of prints splashed across chiffon tops, jackets and dresses.

1. Go Small or Go Home

Yes, that would usually read "big" but on this occasion, the smaller and more detailed the print the better! Fine prints evoke a retro vibe, add detail and dimension and style back perfectly with the mom jean trend which is huge right now. Opting for a fine and detailed flower or polka dot print is the best way to interpret print in 2019.

2. Streamline

Prints can hold a lot of weight so the key to overcoming bulk is to streamline your outfit. This can be done in many different ways such as adding height with a heel or a pointed boot, opting for a small bag rather than large, selecting dark block colours like black and navy to narrow the legs or upper body or choosing a long line coat/cardigan. Consider styling a pointed ankle boot with a print dress to streamline the legs or opt for a skin tight skinny jean and pointed pump with a pretty print top. It only takes one carefully considered piece to streamline an outfit, whether that be a good shoe, fitted jean, tailored jacket or mini bag.

3. Match It Up

A co-ord set is a great way to take print to the next level, suggesting a fun, youthful vibrancy reminiscent of festival fashion minus the sequins and hangover. A skater shape skirt and a crop is a perfect choice! Pair with a natural texture bag and take it into the cooler months with a statement coat to ground the look.

4. Add A Little Quirk

Prints can often be associated with age, frou-frou or fuss but this can be easily overcome with the right styling. Injecting some edge or quirk factor elsewhere in your outfit will prove you are doing print on purpose and this nod of confidence is all it takes to make the trend work. A little quirk or edge can be found with a cat eye pair of sunglasses, a tough boot, a messy hair style, metallic textures or leather.
