Style file: Mix & Match

The sillouettes this summer are strongly defined and most designers opted for a sleek, strong and clean look or a messy, fun and girly look. In this 2010 trend report I'm discussing the fun and flirty feeling you can create by mixing prints. A lot of designers set the example and showed us no combination is too bold. Leopard with flowers, dots and stripes, tweed with ethnic prints, it's all good!

When mixing prints, you just have to try and see what works and what doesn't as you go along, because sometimes unexpected combinations are the best. However, here are some tips & trics to get you started:
♥ If this trend is a bit too much for you, start by mixing prints in the same color scheme or with a repeating color.
♥ Try mixing a big print and a small print together.
♥ Play with textures to create an even more eye catching outfit.

♥ Dots and stripes are an easy starting point as they are pretty 'neutral' and go with a lot of other prints.

ps. I decided not to do the trend report for a while because I had so many collages of fashion week collections. Do you still want to see more?
