“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”—Elizabeth Taylor
Once upon a time, wearing clashing prints, textures and patterns was considered a big fashion faux pas. However, fashion has a way to adapt and change instantly; hence clashing prints is so longer considered as style eccentricity and has become the de rigueur.
As mentioned here, it will be one of the key trends in the coming months. 70s inspired, House of Holland show at the recently concluded LFW showcased this look in a very interesting avatar. So, what are you waiting for? Bring out your prints and let the clashing madness begin.
As with any trend, you need to remember few rules. Mixing spots with stripes or stripes with floral are two easiest ways but if you really want to up the ante then mix vibrant patterns in colours that complement each other or has one “leading” colour.
Here, I have paired my bold graphic print bodycon dress with a floral skirt. Black is the dominant colour in both the skirt and the top (dress worn as top). To complete the look, I’ve used simple accessories like a black-silver cuff and earrings, my brown bucket bag and simple peep toe wedges.

I personally love this trend as it reminds of simpler times when you didn’t have to think too much about ways to look and feel good. Plus, I am a bit partial to anything quirky 😉
