We’re Seeing Spots!

September 28, 2011 by Unique Vintage | Prom

From runways to the real world, the trend of mixing prints has taken another level. As a lover of all things printed, you can imagine my excitement when it became “on trend” to mix my favorites! The key to a successful print mixture is making sure that the color scheme is cohesive. In other words, both prints should have a common color throughout. This way your outfit doesn’t look like you just rolled out of bed and got dressed in the dark. Another way to hit the mark with pattern mixing is keeping your prints super subtle, like a pinstripe or a polka dot. I have always had an obsession with Disney, Minnie Mouse in particular.

Polka dots, whether they be large or teeny tiny, make a fabulous fashion statement. They are an easy way to bring a feminine touch to even the simplest outfit. During the fall runways of the Gucci, Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs, these babies were everywhere!
