Shop The Looks: 3 Ways To Print Clash

It's true, prints are not for everyone, some people like a much more minimalist look. However, there are quite a few of us that are print mad! You start by maybe adding a printed bag to your look, next it's a printed shirt, then a pair of printed trousers and before you know it there is little left in your wardrobe that isn't printed. The thing we love about prints is how unique they can be, you might already own a black top, but you probably don't own a top in print X or Y or Z... so you just can't not buy it!
Now once you've surrendered to your love for print, you should consider all the benefits of print clashing. If you get it right, an abundance of unique and fashionable outfits will be available at your fingertips! Check out three of our favourite print clashing combinations and a guide on how you can get the look along with some little fashion tips and tricks on how to pull of this trend.

Look One | Striped Tee & Floral Trousers

This look works for several reasons. Firstly, the colour scheme. This colour scheme works because the blogger has kept the most dominant colours in the same hues, which happen to be neutrals. There are small pops of colour in the trousers, but the main colours run in the same family. Secondly, she has added solid colours into the mix with her bag and shoes. Thirdly, she has opted for one of the prints to be stripes - stripes serve as the "neutral" in the print world and are without a doubt the easiest print to clash with.

Look Two | Floral On Floral 

This fashionista also adds block colours to her look in order to tone down the clashing prints. For her prints however, she's chosen the same pattern, floral, but in different colours. Despite being different colours, they are in similar hues which is what makes this look work so well.

Look Three | Striped Top & Leo Print Flats

For a much more subtle approach to the print clashing trend, separate your prints with a block colour. The easiest way to do this is by wearing a printed top, a block coloured bottom, then shoes in a clashing print. This is definitely a great way for those unsure about the trend to incorporate it into their wardrobe.

Cobalt blue is a wonderfully rich colour that suits all skintones and hair colours. It is perfect for people who don't like much colour in their wardrobe as it's not overpowering yet it still makes an impact.

It looks so sleek and luxurious on loose silky fabrics and it looks great with both neutrals and colours.

It's a colour that can be worn casually or for an evening out, and you can wear as little or as much of it as you like in one outfit without it looking over the top.

Hair Trend: Sombre!

So we all know of the ombre trend by now, but you might not be as accustomed to sombre? Sombre is a term for "subtle ombre" meaning that the transition between the two colours is much more gradual using a mixture of highlights and lowlights to create the desired effect rather than block colour.



Sombre hair is a bit more complicated than the traditional ombre where the lighter colour was applied in a dip-dye method. Sombre doesn't always remove all elements of the darker shade from the lower half of the hair.



This style is perfect for those that are already blonde! The ombre required more of a contrast in shades whereas the sombre does not.



It's also great for dark brunettes who want to add a touch of light to their look.
