Hello Darlings… I hope you had a great week and you’re excited for the weekend? My week was great but I had a very bad day yesterday. I gave my faulty tab to a repairer at computer village over a week and I finally decided to collect it from him yesterday after a week of him constantly telling me stories of not finding the right screen for the tab. I gave him N5000 the day I dropped the tab and reaching there yesterday, He gave me the tab the same way I gave him and refused to give me my N5000 back. We went back and forth on the issue and Mehn the struggle was real to get my money back. The issue is still pending as I involved other people and we finalized that I was going to get my money back on Monday. I hope I didn’t bore you with my plenty gist.
One thing I love about the fashion industry is the fact things that were considered wrong are now being embraced and people keep making major fashion statements without being judged.
I love the ankara print so much because it’s unique and so rich in culture that it makes me feel so close to home (thats such a weird statement right?). I’ve always wanted to mix two ankara prints and I’m happy I finally created my own look by pairing an Ankara cape from Hoola which was included in my goody bag at The Blogger Point Blogger’s Brunch with my Anakara pants I’ve paired Here
Mixing prints can look so easy but trust me it’s take creativity and professionalism to make it work without making the ensemble look too busy. I’ll be sharing basic rules you should consider before mixing prints.
- Mix based on colour: One way to avoid your ensemble looking too busy and confused is by making sure that the two prints are in the same colour family. Try picking a colour that is on both prints because it makes the look more unified and well put together.
- Mix prints based on numbers: I know that everyone wants to try out different things to make a statement but that shouldn’t mean you should mix all the ankara prints you have at once. Mixing two prints at a time is good for beginners and mixing three prints at the same time is great for people that are daring with fashion and know how to make it work. One thing you should consider is that if you over do it, you’ll look very confused and trust me nobody wants to look confused wearing a particular look.
- Mix prints based on size: Mixing bolder prints with smaller ones actually makes the look very attractive. In my own look my cape was more bolder in colour and size than the pants.
I hope I’ve been helpful with the above rules and if you have more rules or tips to share please do so in the comment section.
Have you ever mixed ankara prints? Was it hard or you just did it? I’ll love to hear from you.
