Fashion // Mixing Prints

Top: H&M, Scarf: Primark, Leather Jacket: H&M, Jeans: Tesco, Converse: Gifted 

Can you believe this is one of three outfits posts I photographed at the weekend – yes you did hear that correctly, THREE!! 

Major shout out to my mum who hobbled about after having an operation a week ago to ensure I got all the images I needed, there’s a big Christmas prezzy coming your way! It was the perfect winter’s day, very cold but the sky was so blue and it wasn’t raining for once, so obviously we had to take advantage of this by driving around different locations. However, getting changed in the car isn’t so glamorous... 

My style is going downhill drastically and I am in dire need of sorting this out, all I seem to wear is the exact same outfits even though my wardrobe is about to collapse with the amount of items on there, yet I never seem to have anything to wear! 

One biggie for me that I am building my confidence up to have an experiment with is mixing prints, it has got a lot more popular towards the back end of 2016 and I have a feeling that it is going to be one of the biggest trends of 2017. There have been some of the most beautiful outfit choices this past year that has included some gorgeous prints paired together. 

If you want to have a dabble with this trend but not sure where to start, why not try pairing a simple tee with an outer garment, for me I picked out this monochrome striped tee and wore this with an oversized plaid scarf. I loved how the subdued dark tones of the scarf took centre stage whilst you got the hint of the monochrome stripes from under my leather jacket. It is not too overpowering which is perfect as I wanted it to be very subtle and understated for my first attempt. 

When trialling out a new trend or if you are trying to break out of your comfort zone, you can slowly introduce things into your style. Anyone else had a go at mixing prints together?
