5 Ways to Incorporate Fun Prints Into Your Wardrobe, Manhattan, New York

If you’re tired of your style, one easy way to update your look is to add patterns. Whether it’s a pair of spandex leopard-print leggings or polka-dot shorts, use the following tips to incorporate bold pieces into your existing wardrobe.

5 Fun Prints & How to Wear Them

1. Floral

Florals give you plenty of color to play with. Pick two different prints that share a single color to make the most of it. Try inverting the colors for a stylish twist: If one piece has a red background with navy accents, get another one with a navy background and red accents.

2. Polka Dots

spandexIf you’re new to pairing multiple patterns, there is one combo where you can’t go wrong: stripes and polka dots. Also, look for polka dots in your accessories. From shoes to scarves to socks, they’re a fun yet understated way to add patterns to your everyday look.

3. Animal

Zebra, tiger, giraffe — wild animal prints give you a wild vibe. If you want to tone down the ferociousness, pair these prints with neutral shades. You can also look for larger, looser cuts. A flowing leopard-print blouse may be an easier introduction to your wardrobe than a skin-tight spandex skirt.

4. Stripes

When pairing patterns, treat stripes like a neutral. They are versatile and come in all shades and sizes, so you can mix them with different scales. For instance, pair heavy, broad stripes with a delicate pattern of small hearts. Alternatively, combine skinny pinstripes with a large-print tropical design.

5. Camouflage

Camouflage shades tend to be muted olive greens and tans. Spice up the traditional look and avoid looking like you’re headed for a hunting trip by complementing your camo with bright colors. Neon is one way eye-catching and trendy option.
