Printed garments might sound like a great way to show off your personality, communicate a message, or raise awareness about an issue you care about. But to pull it off, you need to wear them in the right way. Get it wrong, and you’ll be lambasted for your lack of fashion sense, but do it right, and you’ll be the talk of the office, and other people might even think about joining you.

Pair Prints With Prints

You might think that the best approach to wearing prints is to keep them isolated or limit them to one item. But it turns out that prints tend to work really well with other prints and not so well with plain clothes. Think for a second how bad it would look to wear a plain shirt with a printed dress. Instead of trying to minimize prints, layer them on top of each other and really start experimenting.

Use Prints From The Same Color Palette

Prints are chaotic. This is one of the reasons they’re worn so infrequently. Prints ask a lot of the eyes and demand our full attention when we look at them. To make things easier on other people, trying sticking within the same color palette when choosing print items. If you’re wearing a patterned greeny-blue dress, for instance, stick with a greeny blue bag, shoes, and accessories. Pairing like colors will help bring the pattern together and stop visual overload.

Use Prints To Tell People About Yourself

Many people use printed items to tell other people more about themselves. You can get ideas from GeckShirts and other sites about how exactly to do this. Some people wear clothes with funny messages, while others use them as a platform to share their interests. When a piece of clothing actually says something about you, that gives you even more of a reason for wearing it. It doesn’t so much matter about the style of the item, so long as it fits your personality.

Combine Textures

While it’s best to keep the colors similar, combining textures is fine. Floral patterns often work well with polka dots and even text. Why not try mixing a jersey-style mesh dress with a polka dot silk blouse underneath. Not only will the combination of textures work well, but it will also give you a 70s vibe – if that’s something you’re going for.

Wearing different geometric patterns in the same outfit also works well. A striped blue and white top, for instance, will go well with a checked blazer.

Use Items From The Same Aesthetic

In interior design, designers often talk about the “design language” of a room. Business consultancies use the same language when talking about a company’s brand. What they mean by this term are the common features shared by particular designs that make them recognizably related.

If you wear prints, you need to adopt a similar approach. Every item you wear needs to come from the same family of designs, otherwise, things can get messy. Pair organic designs, like floral patterns, with other natural-looking patterns. Likewise, put grid-patterned clothes with other man-made designs.

You can’t pinpoint a stylist’s style. They may follow a fashion trend every so often, but most of the time, they come up with their own unique outfits and look ideas. One thing is for sure though; they always look amazing! Here’s your guide to dressing like a stylist so you can make sure all of your outfits are on point!

Experiment With Textures

One thing you’ll notice about pretty much every stylist, is that their outfits are full of amazing textures. This stops them from looking samey and boring, especially if they are wearing an outfit predominantly of one color. For example, an all black outfit could look boring if no texture is used. Experiment with all kinds of different materials and textures in your outfits to keep them looking interesting and full of style.

Practice Layering Your Outfits

Layering your outfits is another key to keeping it interesting. The great thing about layering, is that it’s great for transitional weather when you’re not sure what you should be wearing. You can easily add layers or take them away as the weather changes. It can take a little practice to get this right, but you will get the hang of it in no time. When layering, it’s a good idea to experiment with hem lengths and things like that too.

Always Accessorize

You should never dress without considering what accessories you’re going to wear. Accessories help to enhance your outfit. Make sure you have a selection of accessories to choose from, from evening bags to necklaces. You can then choose accessories that make your outfit pop.

The Trick To Making Any Outfit Look Great

Did you know that there’s a little trick to making any outfit look great? You could be wearing jeans and a t-shirt, or a plain dress, but this trick will always work. Choose a smart pair of shoes, a luxurious looking bag, and a pair of nice sunglasses. They can be any style and color of course, but black will go with anything. Try it and you won’t believe what a difference it can make to your outfits!

Belt Up

The right belt can make an outfit look more pulled together. It can make even the plainest of outfits look amazing, and give you a bit of shape to boot. Skinny belts and thick belts work; it’s all down to what you prefer and suits your shape best.

Never Mix More Than 2 Prints Or 2 Clashing Colors

Stylists seem to be amazing at mixing prints and clashing colors. But there’s a rule if you want to start doing this. You shouldn’t mix more than 2 prints at once, or more than 2 clashing colors. By sticking to the rule of 2, you’ll be able to rock just about any look with ease!
Dressing like a stylist might take some practice, and you might even need to reassess your wardrobe to incorporate some better pieces, and get rid of those you don’t wear. However, it shouldn’t be long before your outfits are worthy of their own Instagram account!

During the winter, there’s often nothing that you want more than to be cozy. It’s not always an easy feeling to achieve, especially when it’s cold out. But, it is possible to transform your home into a comfortable and comforting paradise. You might need to invest a little bit of money and think outside of the box, but you can change the way your home looks and feels in very little time.

It might help to talk to friends and see what they recommend, or even pick up your favorite interiors magazine for their top tips, but you if you want an instant fix, there are seven main areas that help you can achieve a cozy home vibe before winter’s out.

Set The Ambiance

First up, you’re going to want to set the mood. Whether you choose to do it in one set room, or you cozy up to the whole house, you can make an instant difference by manipulating the atmosphere. When you’re looking to achieve a cozier home, you’re going to want to create a welcoming vibe – not only for yourself to enjoy, but your guests too. Lighting is an incredible aid in setting the right atmosphere, but music can help too. Ensure that your lighting is low and warm, and keep your music calm and relaxing.

Light A Fire

One of the easiest ways to create an immediate cozy effect is to light a fire. You may not have an open fire or a wood burner in your home, but it is likely that you have some working fire in your fireplace, even if it’s electric (and if not, it’s time to get one installed). So, crank it up and let the warming heat and roaring flames relax you and let your mind and body unwind.

Texture Up

Right next to atmosphere and warmth on the cozy scale is texture. If your decor is very minimal, with clean lines and straight edges, you might feel a little cool – even when the heating is on. So, you need to head out to your favorite home store and start shopping for the perfect soft furnishings to cozy up your home with. Have the perfect image of a cozy home in your head to guide you. Think thick wools, fluffy faux furs, decadent velvets and fun fleeces.

Scent The Space

Then, as your rooms are coming together, you’re going to want to add in the perfected finishing touches. You might have the ambience just right, thanks to your lighting and music, but there is another sense that we can cover off to keep your home as cozy as possible – smell. So far, your home looks, sounds and feels just right, but it can smell it too. Pick up some scented candles or home fragrances that put you in a relaxed mood and will set your mind at ease.

Run A Bath

Now that you’re home is pretty much finished, you’re going to want to get yourself ready to enjoy it. You could just lay on your couch and rest, but, there are a few more steps left to ensure your cozy experience is the best that it can be. By having a bath, you’re not only going to make your skin glow (which will make you feel incredible), but you can use bath oils that will relax you ready for the cozy night ahead.

Dress Up

After your bath, you’re going to want to get dressed for the occasion. Just like you’d get all dolled up for a night out, you’re going to need to get all dolled down for a night in! When you’re trying to relax and feel as cozy as possible, you need to be wearing the right thing. Invest in quality nightwear and lounge-wear products, like those by Vanilla underwear, that are not only comfortable but easy to cuddle up in too.

Snuggle Up

When you look and feel the part, it’s time to enjoy your surroundings – you’ve haven’t worked this hard to create your cozy corner of the world and not do it right. When you want to be comfortable and calm, some of the best ways to enjoy the space are to have a movie night or even a little date night. Now that you’re feeling soothed and stress-free, and you’re in you comfy casuals, you can pick the perfect movie, make your favorite food and lay back on the couch to enjoy it all. As long as the mood is right and you’re ready to unwind, your cozy paradise will do the rest.
