STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Printed Panache

The summer sun and sticky heat can often make layering look like a Fashionista’s worst friend on warm days. With this season’s stylish standalone pieces, it is more tempting than ever to slip into a sundress and dash out the door. However, this Fashionista demonstrates how to tackle summer layer trouble in the most stylish of ways.

This week’s Fashionista combines comfort and color to create an ensemble of many multitudes. She layers light fabrics with breezy basics to mix and match prints without clashing colors. Her multi-colored tuxedo vest and coordinating fedora paired with a slouchy boyfriend tank and distressed pale denim strike the perfect balance between sophisticated and stress-free style. Finished with a peach printed circle scarf and suede moccasin flats, this Fashionista’s diverse collection of cuts and colors paints the ultimate summer palette.

Careful not to clutter her ensemble with incompatible prints, this week’s Fashionista uses plain basics underneath patterned pieces of similar palettes. When mixing prints, try pairing similar palettes by focusing on one or two common colors while keeping the remainder of the ensemble neutral.
