ADDING TEXTURE: Nothing screams texture more then knitwear. This wardrobe staple can elevate any print, all it takes is a little balance. Go for a bold print and match it with a simple jersey knit or a subtle two tone print with a chunky cable sweater. This style-hack can also take you from season to season and keep that summer skirt going through the winter months.

TRY TONAL  Mixed prints in the same tonal colour is the foundation for a well put together look. Keep colour in mind when creating this look and drawn from the accents in the print to tie it all together. For added texture, go for embellishments. Think subtle lace, ruffles or even pintucks. WHEN IN DOUBT: MAKE IT CLASH  Power clashing seems to be the trend all the style setters are sporting this season. And the sweet science is simple; go bold and wear it with confidence.   For some of you the thought of wildly mixing prints may be a cause for stress! To create a coordinated clashing look that is intentional yet subtle, opt for prints with cohesive colours. PASTELS ARE THE NEW NEUTRALS  A fresh pastel pallete will never lead you astray. No colours and prints are off limits when it comes to this colour scheme.   The final rule is, there are no rules. Push the boundaries and get clever with your wardrobe this season. For more style inspiration shop our latest styles.
