The co-ordinated look seems to be a resultant of one of the major trends of the year – the print on print trend. It is a more streamlined version of this trend and is an interesting break from solids, especially for Friday dressing.
Songstress Solange Knowles seems to be the biggest proponent of this trend, sporting the co-ordinated look consistently though the year. Make your presence felt with a bold print like Sophie Choudry, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. Can’t get enough of your favourite print? Wear it head to toe! All you print lovers, this trend is for you!
Here’s what’s great about this trend:
- A single print worn top to bottom makes you look leaner and taller. Who wouldn’t want that?
- Having a matching skirt and jacket increases your wardrobe’s versatility manifold. Wear a printed blazer with solid pants, or with a pair of shorts in a clashing print, or just pair it with its matching skirt – the term “mix and match” just got a whole new meaning with co-ordinated separates!
- Those skeptical about investing in a jumpsuit can wear printed trousers with a matching top to get a similar effect. Similarly, a playsuit can be created by pairing a top and shorts in matching prints.
- This one’s also good for peeps who don’t count accessorising as their strength. Since there’s anyway quite a bit of prints happening on the ensemble, let the print be the hero and go very easy on the accessories. Nude pumps or a plain jacket is all you need. The lesser, the better.
