Print blocking can be exhilarating or daunting, depending of course on personal style! However, in celebration of our epic PRINT FRENZY sale currently on, and the turn of seasons at our door, we encourage you to spruce up your wardrobe (or style) and have a go at print blocking like a pro.
Unsure where to start? We break it down for you with staff sale picks available at 40% to 50% off until the end of the week!
Pair loud with quiet! Like the age old saying of 'opposites attract', treat a more subtle print composed of different shades of one colour or with less variation, as a neutral. Then pair it with the flamboyant sister that has a lot more to say. This will help keep a balance and blend the two prints together into one cohesive look.
Colour, darling! Using colour theory as a reference, pinpoint the accent \colour that stands out the most (it may be two), and find a print that compliments or works in stark contrast with it. This is where words such as monotone, primary and complimentary colours come in handy.
Keep it in the family! If you can, work with the same style of print and see that there's less clashing between the two. Play with different prints of the same style such as florals, checks, stripes etc.
What's the scale? Treat a smaller scale print as a neutral, that can be easily placed next to a larger scale print, and lead the conversation.
