Here are some tips and tricks to help you to wear the matching print trend stylishly.
|1.||Since prints scream for attention, pair them with neutral colours and basics and keep everything else simple.|
|2.||Make the look sultry for the evening by pairing printed pants with a sheer blouse.|
|3.||If you are going for different types of prints, make sure the prints are complimentary in colour scheme or they come from the same colour family. Also, avoid textured tops or busy prints—unless you want visual chaos.|
|4.||Wear heels to lengthen your silhouette. It can easily transform your look from day to evening. If you decide to go with flats, fold the ends of your pants and turn them into cropped pants to balance your proportions|
|5.||Play with proportions. When pants are tight, wear something loose for the top. Or, balance loose pants with a fitted or structured top.|
|6.||Invest in a colour or print you can easily work into your wardrobe, so you get more mileage from the printed pants.|
|7.||Use accessories sparingly. Wear a statement ring, or a statement neckpiece or bangles, but never all at the same time.|
