How to Mix Summer Prints and Colors (like a pro)
Bright, bold, and summery; any outfit that fits this description during the blistering hot summer months is an instant favorite at Witt’s End boutique here in College Station. Certain that it will instantly add a “cool” factor, we adore punches of color and waves of pattern that seem so fitting for summer evenings.
Typically, we would style a brazen pattern against a simple solid to keep the outfit clean and sharp. But these days we absolutely love the concept of clashing prints and patterns. Done the right way, this look brings an instant bohemian chic appeal to the outfit. Our rule of thumb for dressing with two patterns: get out that color wheel! Keep the colors within the same color family or opposing (yet complimentary) color family. Our current inspiration is coming from the new arrivals of Ivy Jane items that we just received at our College Station boutique. Are you new to wearing patterns and want to ease yourself in to this trend? Go with the time-tested technique of the solid piece paired with a pattern. Another Ivy Jane favorite of ours right now is the white or chambray tunic. A small bit of detailing in this killer top makes it so easy to pair with a colored short and a wrist full of bangles.
