How to mix prints like a pro and polka dots


It would not be wrong if i say i am obsessed with polka dots, so when i saw this blouse in fun candy colour polkas in zara i couldn’t stop myself from grabbing. The fit was beautiful and i could imagine myself wearing it with almost any bottom in my wardrobe.  No impulsive shopping. 
Two reasons i love polka dots are 1. they are almost a classic 2. great for mixing prints. So that means its a very safe print to buy, something that can stay in your wardrobe for long and be used in different outfits. 

Like stripes, almost.



Lets talk about mixing prints today
  1. Two classic prints can always be paired together without  much thought, like a polka dot blouse with a pinstripe trouser.
  2. Leopard print also qualifies as a neutral print, a great way to do print mix with leopard is with shoes or accessories in the form of bag, belt or choker.
  3. Depending on your body shape choose a bolder print on the areas you want to highlight and a conservative one on the area you want to conceal. 
  4. Going monochrome is another great way to mix prints, i.e choose different prints but keep the colours same.









What i wore- Blouse- Zara, Jeans- Zara, Loafers- Topshop

This look is rocking two of the top trends for autumn I paired my polka dots blouse with my two tone denim that gives the side stripe look and leopard loafers, comfy and chic for meetings as well as for casual days.

  1. I love polka dots too - I have a lovely top with them on. I like the idea of combining them with a pin stripe.

  2. Oh I adore that top from Zara! I buy far too many things with stripes and probably need to learn to mix those a bit better too.
