Defying the Rules (Print on Print)

by - Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Most of us might have read a lot of things on how to do a print on print number. And from a perspective of someone who loves to be on the safe side, I might as well drop the idea of being seen in one than to look weird if I do it wrong. But that was the old me. Currently, as long as I find the items appealing and somehow feel that "connection" in them, I would not hesitate to wear them in public whatever rules or guideline I might break. Just like the pieces I wore in this set of photos.

This was the blouse that I mentioned in this post. I bought it along with this printed skirt when my mother and I shopped for my siblings' uniforms and some school supplies. I find it very office appropriate that even if I had not seen that skirt that day, I would still find myself buying it.

As for the printed skirt, I was first looking at the other color available, which is black and white (same with the blouse). Like I said before, there were online articles I've read regarding guidelines for mixing prints, and one of those is matching different prints with the same color groups. But then I thought that I want one of the two items to stand out, hence I picked the peach colored one. And to highlight the color of the skirt more, I chose just neutral colors for my accessories (white) and shoes (gray). I don't know if you guys find the look interesting and catchy but that's how I felt when I wore this! This  is an outfit I definitely feel proud when I am wearing it.

As for the question I left from my post yesterday, does the blouse still look like worn by kids? It is just a matter of styling right? What do you think?*wink*

  3. I like your accessories. I have no patience in styling so I really admire people who put an effort in assembling what to wear. Plus, it all boils down to the confidence of the person wearing the outfit.

    1. Awww thanks Venus! I'm really happy to read these comments from you and the others. I'm still trying to experiment on wearing (and mixing) clothes I am not comfortable to wear before. I do this so I could learn more about the styles I can pull off and those that I have to skip :p Maybe you can try once in a while? :)
