Have you ever bought a bold-coloured skirt or a floral-designed top and chickened out of wearing it at the last moment? Everyone has done that. We all have our share of fears about going out of the conventional way to style our outfits by pairing up the prints. However, there are some ways to add funk to your clothes with mismatched prints!
The pattern of the print lays the foundation for the desired style. Choosing patterns to match and pair requires some effort. Stripes have made a big name in the game. Stripes come in many shapes and sizes. The best part? They go with everything! Patterns like houndstooth and animal prints are also trendy among mixing and matching styles.
I started by mentioning patterns and prints since they are the most common kinds of mismatched pants both genders prefer. Apart from these, given below are a few tips that you can follow no matter what kind of mismatched pants you wear.
Utilizing the Power of Mismatched Pants!
Use Complementary Colors for a Bold Statement
For those of you who do not know, complementary colours include purple/yellow, green/red, orange/blue and many more. On the colour wheel, they are on opposite sides.
For example, if you have mismatched pants in orange colour, wear upper wear that is any shade of blue. This will help you stand out from the crowd.
Stick to the Same Pattern for Simplicity
If you have bought mismatched pants and are regretting your decision because you feel like they are too bold or extra for your fashion preferences, worry not. All you have to do is streamline everything and wear a top that is of a similar print to your pants.
Use Solids to Break Things Up
If the kind of mismatched pants that you have are not plain and are full of patterns or florals, try to wear upper wear that is plain or slightly dull in colour. This will not only give you a proper outfit but will also help break things up. This is also for those who want to go minimalistic, but at the same time do not want to look basic.
Finally, let me give you some advice on mixing up the colours. Make a bold statement at work or play safely in the next outing. When it comes to the outfit’s colour scheme, there’s only one rule – matching colours should share some kind of relation. For example, they could be in the same tonal range, or they could be contemporary. Pairing up the outfits with printed accessories is also a great way to style for the day.
