LOOKBOOK | Stripes and anchors
Wearing prints with a different set of prints can be tricky, which is why it's best to pair them with something in a plain and solid color. But then what's left to enjoy of summer when the majority of beach and swimwear come in prints of all colors and patterns?
For one, you can choose a bright-colored top with printed swim shorts so both pieces stand out without clashing. Go for neon if you may. Conversely, if your top is quite busy, tone it down with something solid but in a color that still stands out, like I did before with an Aztec print tank top and plain green swim shorts.
But then you can always experiment with print on print. Try on different combinations and see what works, and then just own it. Wearing pieces with confidence spells a lot of difference.
In my case here I whipped out two old pieces from my closet, both from Regatta. First off, green and blue are complementing colors. Next, the stripes and anchor prints don't seem to clash with each other, so I stuck with the combo.
And then it's just enjoying the afternoon by the beach. Ah, life.
