Following trends is passé. The new rage this season is mixing them up. Gone are the days when flaunting contrasting trends was almost considered a sartorial crime. Experimenting with opposite styles opens up your wardrobe to plenty of possibilities; it gives you a huge variety of options and speaks of a more personal and individualistic approach to dressing.
While there are no particular rules for merging different colours, patterns, and prints, the basic idea is to highlight and bring to the fore, the USP of each trend that you’re wearing and even passing over the fashion fence. Don’t say predictable, give your outfit an interesting depth; all without making yourself a victim of fashion faux pas.
Make use of these super chic tips that will help you pull of this trend, without looking over the top.
1. Sport luxe and colour blocking
If sports staples are your thing, combine it with colour blocking. They bring a very edgy appeal to your outfit.
2. Military and floral
Infuse new life in your floral dress, by adding a touch of military to it. From military jackets to bags, you have a wide array at your disposal.
3. Aztec prints and neon
There are two ways of pairing this trend. Either you combine them in one piece of clothing or wear them as separates.
4. Peter Pan collar and polka dots
These two hugely popular trends can do wonders when worn together. Femininity personified!
5. Leather and lace
There’s no better feeling than being able to pull off two extreme trends. Leather is timeless while lace is strictly feminine.
And we totally love Kerry Washington in this Prabal Gurung creation. A classic example of mixing trends; this original piece of creativity is an amalgamation of peplum detailing at the waist, transparent panel of the hem, patterned skirt, and studded belt.
