• How Do You Wear It? Fall 2012’s Print on Print Trend

    We’re continuing our How Do You Wear It? feature with Fall 2012’s print on print trend.
    Take a gander at how a handful of Bombshells made the look their own:

    Trisha from FashionAccordingtotheMenu.com types, “One of my favorite trends this fall is print mixing. For this outfit, I took two fabulous vintage pieces with similar color schemes to create a fun yet cohesive look. I also added a pair of animal print pumps–although they are printed, they’re muted enough to let the other prints stand out. I finished the look with gold accessories.

    Kansas native Jacque from www.shoplioness.com writes, “I love floral print and I think mixing prints from the same family but different colors/textures is a safe way to take part in the trend!”

    AJ from My African Closet offers, ” My trick to wearing this season’s print on print is to go for similar colours in different patterns, or similar patterns in the different colours. It’s a fun and quirky alternative to wearing the same print all over.”

    Dionne says, “I am submitting my pic for your spotlight on reader’s trends.”

    And lastly, Naisy Tiny from Afro Vaidosas offered her own interpretation by pairing a snake print shirt with cheetah peep toes.
    Which is more your style?
