A lot of people are afraid of prints (especially when you favour black because it’s “slimming”) but I adore them. I am always on the lookout for a top or dress in a great print. This dress was an unexpected find just before I went on a trip to Hawaii.
I wore it to celebrate a friend’s birthday on that trip. I paired it with these kitten slingback heels, which I picked up on the same trip, and happened to match the blue in the print.
To accessorise I wore my favourite statement earrings – yellow crystal chandeliers. The yellow provides a nice contrast to all the blue and stops the look from being too matchy-matchy. The gold bracelet blends with the yellow earrings and is bold enough to stand out against the long sleeve. The simple clutch picks out the black in the print.
If a print dress is too much for you, start by pairing a print top with a plain black skirt. Let me know how you get on.
