How to Style Clashing Prints with Eyewear

A huge styling trend for this season is to clash prints within your outfit!

The trend has been spotted all over the catwalks for the Spring/Summer ’18 season, including collections from brands such as Natasha Zinko and Mary Katrantzou.

Now you are able to rock the same look with more affordable pieces!

The key rule is to match colours together, rather than the actual prints.

If you are a little timid about this trend, why not start small with a stripe and floral combination?! It doesn’t matter how subtle or bold the prints are – you are still able to pull off this trend!

Read on for our top tips on how to style your print clashes with confidence!

Stripes and Florals

Ganni Floral Print Blouse, Jijil 3/4-length Trousers, Vans Old Skool Sneaker, Charlotte Olympia Embellished Leather Backpack

This is definitely one of the simpler ways to pull off the clashing print trend!

We have teamed an orange floral blouse with a pair of culotte style striped trousers for a summer-ready look.

A pair of Vans trainers help to pull the ensemble together, still incorporating the orange tone into the outfit.

To finish off, we have added a quirky flower shaped rucksack from Charlotte Olympia to add a touch of individuality to the ensemble

For some matching eyewear, why not add a pair of Vuarnet VL1613 frames, and continue those pops of warm summer colours with a sunset yellow lense? Grab them below!

Simple Statement

Ganni Fayette Animal Wrap Top, M&Co Jdy Red Skinny Jeans, Stella McCartney White Sneak-Elyse Stars Sneakers, Moschino Shoulder Bag 

For this simple yet bold look, we have paired a classic leopard print shirt with some bright red jeans for a great colour combination.

The addition of a matching red Moschino handbag and a pair of striped platform sneakers compliments and continues the print clash effortlessly.

Lace and Luxury

Oysho Gehakeltes Spitzen-Triangel Top, Gucci Tropical Print Silk Shorts, Dream Pairs Women’s Christian-New High Heel Pump Shoes, Versace Women Small Baroque Print Leather Shoulder Bag

We personally love this printed ensemble!

A black lace bralet type top has been styled with a pair of colourful printed shorts from Gucci, which are ideal for the warmer months.

Yellow court heels and a Versace printed bag complete the look well, injecting pops of colour all over!

Swinging Sixties

Bill Blass Vintage White Dress, Dsquared2 Belt, Forever 21 Tassel Drop Earrings Red, Off-White Grosgain-Trimmed Leather Ankle Boots

We adore this sixties inspired look!

For this outfit, a red checkerboard printed dress has been paired with a matching striped belt for a great clashing look.

Chunky white boots have been added for a slightly vintage fee, while the statement tasselled earrings give a modern twist to the outfit.

Floral Sunset

This ensemble consists of a burgundy spotty top and a bright floral maxi skirt, and while the prints might clash, we love how the colours match!

A pair of sandal style heels and a floppy fedora hat complete this cheerful ensemble.
