Mixed Print Fashion Trend

Posted by Administrator on 7/23/2013 to Style News

Mixed prints are on in fashion like the bright lights of New York when the sun goes into hiding for the day. Whether an outfit is one piece with separate prints or and two piece ensemble – the trend is exciting. It literally takes the dull moments out of an outfit because there is often a lot going on. The beauty about this style trend is any goes. You can mix prints that have absolutely nothing in common.

Mixed Prints and Fashion Designers 

Mix prints allows fashion designers to be really creative. Fashion labels such as Red Valentino, Tracy Reece, Milly, Magaschoni, Elle Tahari, M Missoni, Michael Kors, Tony Burch, Lafayette 148 New York, Diane von Furstenberg, Kate Spade New York, and Rebecca Taylor to name a few have included mixed print styles in their current collections. From a cost stand point, the cost of creating a mix print styles depends on if the print is combined into one print in terms of when it goes on the fabric or whether the two prints are separate fabrics being sewed together. Of course the last method is the most expensive. For new designers who are producing in small quantities this method can get really expensive because there is a certain minimum of fabric that has to be dyed.

Celebrities in Mixed Prints 

So we just learned a small sample of the fashion designers creating this hot mixed print look but who are the consumers? Well just about everyone is getting in on this fashion trend including many A-List celebrities from Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Beyonce, Heidi Klum, Emily Rosen, Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez, and Emma Watson to name a few. Big bold prints that are impactful always pump fun and excitement into getting dressed. Mixed prints can be worn in the day and easily translate into the after 7 and after 10 looks. Wearing a flirty dress with a two dazzling prints or more competing to see which one will steal the show for the night is an ongoing battle that the women who are wearing them love. Fight on these women say! In the end, each print deserves equal praise in most cases. Sure there are some misses but overall all prints are workable in some form or fashion. As they say, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Mixed prints whether it is a day or evening look is here to stay. So what do you think about this fashion trend? Do you own any mixed prints?
