With a little strategy, anyone can be a print-mixing pro. Here, we paired a silky print blouse from Topshop ($57 at Topshop) with Patrik Ervell's slim print trousers ($437 at Creatures of Comfort) and some clunky Robert Clergerie booties ($775 at La Garconne). For a pop of color, we added rosette earrings ($3.80 at Forever 21) and a bright yellow satchel from Marc by Marc Jacobs ($300 at Net-a-Porter).
This vacation-ready look will see you through your winter vacations and into spring. We started with Isabel Marant's rose-print trousers ($415 at La Garconne) and a contrasting blue floral shell ($64 at Topshop). For some texture, we added a pink python clutch ($50 at Zara) and J.Crew's acrylic "bubble" necklace ($150 at Net-a-Porter). See by Chloe's simple ankle-strap sandals ($295 at Net-a-Porter) keep the look modern.
Even mixed-up prints can look classic. We paired Modcloth's elegant pleated skirt ($53 at Modcloth) with Steven Alan's breezy polka-dot blouse. A bright yellow PSI mini satchel ($1225 at La Garconne) and J.Crew's magenta suede pumps ($198 at J.Crew) offer some personality, while a glittery pink crystal necklace by Shourouk ($895 at Net-a-Porter) ensures the look isn't too prissy.
An earthy palette makes for a fun, eclectic ensemble. Zara's sophisticated printed shift dress ($60 at Zara) and a "paw-print" overcoat from Topshop ($206 from Topshop) pair perfectly, while A Detacher's strappy sandals ($263 at Creatures of Comfort) and Zara's mini-messenger ($80 at Zara) offer sporty sophistication. A spikey charm bracelet by Assad Mounser ($275 at Net-a-Porter) picks up the dress' jagged print.
Brocade textures and metallic threads give this look a luxurious feel. Zara's gold woven trousers ($79 at Zara) and Topshop's chain-print blouse ($80 at Topshop) have an unexpected synergy. To emphasize the gold shimmer, we added two-tone Gucci flats ($495 at Net-a-Porter) and a bold cocktail ring ($18 at Topshop).
