Mar 222011

Winter 2011 is by far the most charming, pretty and wearable winter so far.

Forget about hiding behind drab layers of grey, brown and black – this is the season to show your romantic, playful side.

How to wear prints

If you’re not comfortable with all over prints start small and choose one area of print (like a top or skirt), or keep prints to accessories only.

Team up a printed top with a bottom that is solid colour – like the  gorgeous Manning Cartel ‘Erik the Red’ top from Traffic – Driven by Style.

Plain leggings under a printed kaftan or a dress give the piece an instant casual feel. Look at the Alice McCall dress from Traffic – Driven by Style or the Shanti Butterfly Kaftan from Shugah.

A leather jacket toughens up a soft watercolour print. Go for a masculine cut like the Lucette Motorcross Bomber jacket from Traffic – Driven by Style.

Shoes! Choose solid blocks of colour or a high contrast monochrome look. Kylie Ryan‘s red Lillian boot, cream Top End Weldon pump or the white and black Veronella Vaccaro flats are the perfect match to any bold print (all from Kylie Ryan).

Most importantly make sure you have fun with colours and shapes. A bit of colour will go a long way once the weather cools.

Be adventurous and have fun!
