A solid color top with black and white print pants would be awesome. However if your solid color blue top is lace it might be too much. Print pants and a lace top are both statement pieces and in most cases one statement item of clothing is enough in any outfit. However try your blue top with your black and white pants to see what you think, it depends on the printed pants. A tiny print or small polka dot print pant or thin stripe pant might work with a lace top. You can accessorize with black shoes and black purse or a more modern look would be to pair your outfit with blue colored shoes that work with your blue blouse. With blue shoes a black or white purse would be a modern way to pull your outfit together.
Wearing Prints and Patterns
When wearing prints and patterns or choosing anything to wear, we want to accentuate the positive. The first thing to think about when selecting prints or patterned clothing is the proportion or scale. Large prints will call attention to you and your size. Small women don’t look good in clothing with large prints or patterns. Large women are already noticeable and will just call attention to their size when wearing large prints or patterns. Scale the prints to your size and you’re “good to go.”
