Fashion designer Holly Fulton reveals how best to wear bright colors and prints.
- Start with the basics
“If you’re not familiar with prints and geometric patterns, makes matching a skirt printed with a plain shirt or vice versa,” says Holly.
Try: “for a super stylish look, use a white men’s shirt with printed pants or skirt: you’ll have a nice contrast without exaggeration”.
- Add a scarf
“Just a flash color to turn a simple outfit. Try a bright silk scarf,” adds Holly.
Also try: “Scarves are really versatile-use them to pick up her hair, like high-waisted denim belt on or as a new handbag”.
- Don’t forget your make-up
An important part of your look is the one that goes from the neck up. Even the color of the makeup must be able to match up to that of the clothes you wear.
Try: Don’t be afraid to go overboard with gemstone pendant combinations: match the lipstick color to one of the accessories you wear. Forget the colors very pushed if you already have a pair of colorful sunglasses on her nose or showy neck ties.
- Wearing large and showy accessories
“My creations quickly become statement, from chandelier earrings to accentuate the colors of an outfit at the gold necklace with crystals or studded cuffs,” says Holly.
Try: “add personality to your look with a very important accessory, but be careful not to load more than one piece is likely to weigh down”.
- Assemble two prints
If you want to superimpose two prints, choose two drawings that have different proportions and colors so that one can dominate the other.
Try: “Wearing a shirt or a sweatshirt with a smaller print underneath a dress more funky and flashy”.
- Mix & match
“Sometimes the colors and designs that pictures cannot get along instead, create stunning combinations! Be bold and exercised in the mix & match, you will see what comes out.”
Try: “Avoid creating look monotonous, like the lines from head to toe. If you want to create a total look then use a t-shirt with small lines and a bag with great lines and make sure the colors do not make war. ”
- He also thinks socks
Now that you’re abandoning winter boots and ankle boots to wear more delicate and open models, use socks as an additional color detail.
Try: Add some color to your total black look with a pair of socks flash.
- Experiment with textures
“When I draw I love playing with textures of fabrics and materials, inspire me for putting together unusual look,” confides Holly.
Try: “Slips a wool sweater inside a silk embroidered skirt or jeans combined with a romantic chiffon printed top. Use the belt to merge. ”
- Match colors of the prints from head to toe
If you want to give a glance to look with the prints, the key is to wear a dress like you’re in the brush, where the prints do not lose shape your figure.
Try: Wears a coordinated look with shirt and skirt, or short pant with a print macro so that the skin crawl out as a break from press and another.
