Splash It: Florals & Stripes

3

Before I dazzle you with my new necklaces I need to share this latest obsession of mine: florals and stripes. At first I considered it a No-No combination, but now I am kind of hung up on it and I don’t wait for summer to splash it around. First, here are some tips on how to make this combo work, which I borrowed from  http://sophieannaliese.wordpress.com/2011/04/18/sailors-and-flowers

1. Keep the prints in the same color family. Try mixing blue and green stripes with blue/green florals.

2. Don’t mix two large prints. If you’re going to wear big stripes keep the floral pattern small.

3. Keep your accessories minimal and neutral. The focus is in the patterns and adding too many accessories or accessories with too much color can make the ensemble look too busy.

4. Don’t be afraid to mix textures too. Like a thick top mixed with flowy chiffon skirt.

I do not own the photos, I just get inspired by them. Enjoy!

  1. Александра, одличен пост.
    Добар водич за сите оние изгубени души, како мене, кога станува збор за составување аутфит со два, а можеби и неколку различни принта.
    Особено ми се допаѓаат аутфитите на третата и четвртата фотографија од горе.

  2. Blair Eadie is the shit!
    Јас во глобала многу сакам да мешам принтови, материјали и се што не оди едно со друго.
    Секогаш кога ми треба инспирација или поттик се обраќам кај неа или Ами. Мислам дека докторат заслужуваат и двете.

    Што се однесува до текстот погоре, комплетно точен и одличен водич за почетници. Нешто слично на она по кој почнав да се водам јас. 🙂

    1. Одлично се разбираме 🙂 Истото од погоре важи и за тебе: доаѓа пролет ајде да мешаме пруги и цветови!

  3. I’m following you on Bloglovin;, by the way! I see that you joined. 😀 For some reason, none of the posts I create on your page show up. :/ Are you getting them?

    – Anna

    1. I posted this one through Bloglovin’ and I can see it. So, I’m guessing that none of the posts I’ve been writing for the past few months have gone through. Haha. This is horrible. Please know that I read your blog regularly! I hope my comments will start to show up now. ❤

      1. Dear Anna,

        I used to get some of your comments earlier, like 2 months ago, but nothing since. And don’t worry, I know you’re following me regularly, as do I. We’ll work out the technicalities soon 🙂

  4. Обожавам мешање на принтови!!!
    Се што треба е да имаш малку осет како да ги склопиш тие парчиња меѓу себе, да прочиташ еден ваков супер пост – and you are ready to wear it!

    Инаку, линии + флорал принт – омилена комбинација ми е 🙂
