Summer Is Not Over...Yet!

September 02, 2016


This past week, I could hardly believe it, but there was a crispness in the air. There was that feeling that fall was not that far away. Well, before I knew it, that crispness disappeared and humidity came back in. It was a reminder that summer is not over...yet.

As I recently spoke about traveling, including to a U.S. National Park in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service, I thought we should work to end this summer season with some fashion. So, let's close out summer with excitement and have some fun mixing and matching prints!

Believe it or not, mixing and matching prints should be fun and not intimidating or a chore. With that said... You don't always have to wear a print with a solid. Of course, mixing and matching prints isn't always a go-to option because it can either be a hit or can be seen as a miss.

So, what do you need to know when mixing and matching prints? Here's a simple rule of thumb - ensure the colors go together. Take a step back from your outfit and look at the colors. Ensure the colors match. Then, it's off to the prints. When mixing and matching prints, the prints do not have to all be busy. In other words, if you have a busy floral print on top, why not try a more subtle print on the bottom, such as wide stripes.

Of course, if you are still unsure, play with your accessories and one of your main pieces - either your top or bottom. In other words, try having a printed top with a print on your shoes and/or bag. Whatever route you decide, give it a try!

There's only so many days of summer left and what better way to play up the joy of summer with color and prints.

Happy styling!
