Hello!

Long time no see, isn’t it? Well, blame it all on the monsoon. 🙁

I thought it would be perfect to go visit my folks during this one month break  from college and so I rushed home (yeah!!). Well, I was super excited of course, not just because I was going *HOME* but also because I could finally play dress up! 😀
Though I am not really a big fan of loud colors (on me, as I come out as too garish :P), I reeeeeaalllyy wanted some brightness around! So I decided to try the *Prints-on-Prints* trend. I was really doubtful about the look, but then it was just-so-comfortable, I just had to go with it!

Now, before I go about how I styled my prints-on-prints look, here are some DO’s and DONT’s of this trend.

  • There are really no hard and fast rules as to how to wear this look, but the safest way to do it is to keep things clean with a uniform print from head-to-toe!
  • If you want to be more experimental, go ahead and wear prints head-to-toe and they don’t have to match! Just keep in mind the accessories though! Refrain from using very loud statement accessories. You already have too much on and you wouldn’t want to look like a bandwagon!!
  • One of the *don’ts* of this trend is to wear ill-fitted outfits. Being a statement in itself, if the fit is not snug, it will only make you look ugly (or even scary!) and nobody ever wants that. In short, try to keep the fit as snug as possible 😉 !
  • Pulled back hair and nude make-up is the best way to show off your statement prints but you can choose otherwise (like I did :D)

I paired my crazy print leggings with a floral vest. The leggings are a cheap find from a thrift store in Bandra. The color contrast is a complete stunner!

The black floral vest is from atmosphere. I accessorized the look with spiked necklace from RaastaChaap and my black studded sling. As I was travelling, I put on my most comfortable black brogues.

I am on the heavier side so I chose to throw on a sheer blue shirt/top to cover my behind. Not only does it cover my back, but it also gives an illusion of a thinner me 😉

Now, does this post give you a reason enough to make colors your wardrobe’s best friend this season?

Love and Luck
