For those of you who have been following me on my social media platforms, I’ve announced my collaboration with Lifestyle Blogger, Courtney Davids from Courtney’s Culture, where every Wednesday during the month of August we’ll be combining our post with various topics and posts. Last week, we spoke about our Top 10 Spring items. So, if you haven’t had a chance to read it, here you go.
This week we are speaking about Prints. Prints are there if you a daring person who loves to make a bold statement whether it’s a pair of shoes, a handbag or pants; that item helps you build the rest of your ensemble around that item.
I’ve chosen to wear a printed colourful kimono I purchased the beginning of this year. I added accents around the various colours but still making it the focal point of the outfit.
I’ve gone for a more casual look with a bit of edginess hence the Chelsea boots. Seeing that it’s still relatively cold whether the sun is out or not, I wore a long black top underneath my kimono and tied it with a vintage belt and added a vintage clutch bag with a lighter shade.
Courtney on the other hand had a different interpretation of prints. She opted for a more neutral kind of look by wearing a black and white printed blouse/top which changed her overall appearance from causal to smart casual.
Her philosophy is that plain prints stands out more instead of looking to chaotic with a mixture of colourful prints as it can be dressed up with gorgeous accessories.
In her opinion, prints tend to make your look less complicated because you don’t need more than just that one item. She paired her outfit with a pair of jeans and navy blue peep-toe squared heels. Courtney adds that you need to make sure that the print you are opting to wear agrees with your personality and that it’s comfortable because, confidence is key.
Until next time.
