Mixing Prints

When thinking about the Christmas holidays, your plaids and reds definitely come to mind. I’ve found that plaids can sometimes be a hit or miss. The wrong combination of plaid and add the wrong color, Lord here comes the circus 🎪😩😂. So a way to keep with traditions with a modern twist, is mixing prints.

My first suggestion is to make sure both prints have the same/ similar color combination, so that the look is cohesive. Generally there is a more dominant print  (which is the plaid in this look) and your added print should be either smaller or more exaggerated. This look is screaming Merry Christmas and I am ready for the holiday parties. I want to see some of your holiday looks, be sure to #editorialjames. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I can hear someone saying wait …. where is the deals ???  Well the pants are Zara, I got them from Out of the Closet for $15 🙌🏽🙌🏽

So here’s the break down

Listen…. I’m always trying to think of ways to take my look to the next level. Each element adds a little something different to achieve this editorial look. Can you say cmon vest …. 🙌🏽, we all need options depending on the occasion. Different textures and patterns just to give a little excitement to any look. The plaid, stripes, and prints give a little drama, whereas the solid pieces ground the whole look. I try and use the same color palette when mixing prints just to make sure it’s all cohesive.

So … you know I have to tell you about the deals I found thrifting 🙌🏽! Which includes the coat, (not including the collar) vest, shirt, and bag
