Well, that was a rather complicated title. Anyways, if you haven’t figured out the cryptic title yet, this post is about PRINTS! I am a strong supporter of prints on prints, and the most recent presentation of this spasmodic visual, Miu Miu’s Fall 2012 ad campaign featuring Chloe Sevigny (a throwback to 1996) and a plethora of popping prints, sent me spinning in ecstasy.
Seeing as I’m a pro-mixed print person, I will highlight 3 reasons why everyone should mix it up!
1. Stand out
Stop traffic by distracting drivers and pedestrians alike. While they’re in a pile up judging you on how you’re wearing that leopard print dress with that houndstooth coat while calculating how much their insurance will cover, you’ll walk on by, head held high. But seriously, if you want to make an impact, try mixing bold patterns. Be the leader of the pack.
2. Give in to indecision
Can’t decide whether you want to wear that ikat print skirt or that checkered blouse? Just wear both! Rules are meant to be broken, and this is the one time where indecision doesn’t get on my nerves.
3. Distract enemies during an attack
You find yourself in a dark alley at 1:00 in the morning. Most of the streetlights are out, so it’s difficult to see where you’re going. Faint footsteps are heard, but you don’t know where from. All of a sudden, someone dressed in all black jumps out from behind a dumpster. What do you do? Whip open your coat and reveal your colourful, cropped zebra print sweater over a pair of high-waisted floral print shorts. The potential assailant is temporarily blinded, giving you the opportunity to hightail it out of there. They never saw it coming.
