If you’re not big on bold prints, wearing them for the first time can feel a little intimidating. Luckily, we’ve got some good news:
Anyone can look good in them!
The key to a standout look is to choose prints and patterns that compliment your unique features and style. Off to shop at PEP?
Keep this in mind before picking your next print:
KNOW YOUR BODY:
Bold prints can accentuate or minimise certain areas of your body. For example, bigger prints can make an area appear larger, while smaller patterns can make that area appear smaller. Decide which part of your body you’d like to highlight before you buy.
Now that you know what to shop for, let’s talk styling. Stand out from the crowd. Use these 3 tips to style your bold print and patterned items..
1. STRIKE A BALANCE:
Pair bold prints with neutral or monochrome pieces to balance the overall look. For example, pair a bold shirt with a pair of pants in a solid colour, or even some jeans. Similarly, pair a bold printed skirt with a neutral top.
2. MIX & MATCH:
Feeling experimental? Why don’t you mix different prints to create an eclectic look? Pair larger prints with smaller patterns to create an interesting, striking look.
3. ADD SOME BLING:
Accessories are the punctuation of an outfit. Choose simple, neutral-coloured items to complete your look. Shoes and handbags in beige, white, tan, and black look amazing. As does chunky jewellery in silver or gold.
Remember, when it comes to styling prints and patterns, the most important thing is to have fun. Ready to find what works for you? Head to PEP and shop our bold prints for the whole family and see what’s on offer on our website:
