HOW TO INCORPORATE PRINT INTO AN OUTFIT

Good morning everyone, today’s ensemble is based around this print jacket. There are so many variations of prints out there and it can be somewhat daunting at first. So if you are one of those people that doesn’t wear prints then I have a few tips on how to incorporate it into your wardrobe. Start of with one item such as a top and keep everything else plain, once you become more comfortable you can start mixing and matching. Also go for some accessories in your favourite print, whether it’s a scarf, bag or shoes go for what makes you feel comfortable.

 

/ JACKET / SKIRT / SHOES Similar / BAG / SUNGLASSES / BELT /

PRINT JACKET

So lets begin with my print jacket which is another gifted item from House_Of_Mucha. I absolutely love the print and the colours, once I received the jacket I was thinking how I would style this jacket to my taste. After giving it some thought and styling it in different ways I knew this was my favourite. This jacket is bespoke, so if any of you are interested you can get in contact with House_Of_Mucha and they will be more than happy to make a jacket or any other pieces you might be interested in this print or any other print.

PENCIL SKIRT

Now I decided I wanted to style this print jacket with my black Karen Millen knitted pencil skirt. I tend to find a pencil skirt to be a timeless style, trends and fads will come and go but the classics will always have our hearts. The pencil skirt is truly flattering on most body types, they are also great for the office, heading to parties, or for more formal gatherings as well as a casual edgy look too. Not to mention how swiftly it polishes up a look, regardless of what you decide to pair with it.

Its hard to go wrong with a slim fitting pencil skirt, whether it be during the colder months or for the warmer months. We should all own at least one in our wardrobe in black to give us that polished, structured and sophisticated style. My knit pencil skirt comes in this stretchy material so giving me that excess room, also making it easier to walk in too. It has a zip fastening in the back and I absolutely adore how easy it is to slip it on.

PEEP TOE BOOTIES

Next and onto my shoes, I chose these peep toe booties which are also from Karen Millen. They are in the sock style and I have had them for a number of years now. These are one of my favourites and I find them so comfortable to walk in and therefore tend to gravitate towards them more often.

WIDE BELT

Moving on and I wanted to give the outfit some shape and nothing does that better than a wide belt. This one is from Zara and you would have already seen me wearing it in my previous posts. The belt cinch’s in my waist and just pulls the whole outfit together! The gold buckle works well with the gold zip of the jacket as well as my bag.

BAGUETTE BAG

Speaking of bags I am carrying my Baguette bag from Agnes Nordenholz. Here I opted for the rope handle instead of the leather strap. Such a unique little bag which stands out and one I always get compliments on. This was gifted to me and I absolutely adore it and have been wearing it on repeat. I mean just look at the rope handle detailing, what’s not to love! There are so many other unique bags that are available on her website. Take a look HEREyou will not be disappointed!

FINISHING TOUCHES

As for the finishing touches I am wearing my Le Specs mirrored sunglasses in the Prince Ltd style. Finally completing my look on my lips I chose to wear a bold red lip in the shade 116 extreme from the Chanel Rouge Velvet Extreme range.

    What a fun printed jacket! It looks great belted! I like to wear my prints with lots of neutrals too, it’s a nice simple way to wear something bold! 🙂

    Hope that your week is off to a good start! 🙂 We are on week 6 of staying at home but they have started to lift some restrictions which is nice! 🙂

    And those Roger Vivier silver heels recommendations, I just can’t stop thinking of Priscilla, queen of the desert movie, where they had this amazing huge shoe with a veil flying behind!

    Great post. Thanks for sharing. Earlier this year I did a purse of my closet and when through each item asking myself if I “love it”. And I have to say that I most items I got rid of were prints. I just don’t feel good in prints and really love simplicity and neutrals. I never wore them and finally got rid fo them. But there are a few that I just love and can’t part with.
