STYLING PRINTS VS NEUTRALS

STYLING PRINTS VS NEUTRALS

The key to styling prints vs neutrals is neutral prints. I’ve partnered with an industry stylist and an art teacher to show you how to make wearable mixed patterned outfits. If your style is eccentric, classic, or somewhere in the middle you can mix patterns.

WHAT ARE NEURTAL PRINTS?

Neutral prints are those patterns that are easy to wear and mix with others to make mix print outfits. I’m wearing 3 of my favorites here.

CLASSIC STRIPE | LEOPARD PRINT| MONOGRAM CARIGAN

1. CLASSIC STRIPE

This timeless print with never go out of style and works with any esthetic.

Stylist Tip- Choose stripes that are opposite in scale to the print you want to wear it with. For example a small scale stripe with a large scale floral.

STRIPED TEE | PLAID SHAKET | LEVI’S |SNEAKERS | BELT| HOOPS| BAG
STRIPED TEE |SHAKET |JEANS | CHANEL BAG | MULES | SUNGLASSES
Jen’s Personal Picks – I have these jeans and striped tee. The jeans are the number one selling style from Fidelity. This long sleeve T-shirt is on clearance for only $8.50!

2. LEOPARD PRINT

Leopard print is naturally neutral and works back to almost any color.

A LEOPARD PRINT CARDIGAN

Style classically with a denim shirt, white jeans, and monogram bag or rock it with your favorite band Tee.

3. MONOGRAMS

Monogram prints are mostly solid so they play nicely with other prints.

STRIPE TANK $8 | CARDIAGN $1980| TRACK PANTS $54.78 | SLIDES $17.99 |BELT BAG similar$74.97 |HOOPS $395

This is a look I put together with my favorite monogram piece for a styling video collaboration with Audree Kate Lopez and Nicole Hinchman.

I used this neutral leopard blouse from H&M and small scale Missoni scarf and snake skin boots for added interest.

Another print that can act as a neutral is gingham. See the post here.
