Do's And Don'ts of Wearing Printed Clothes

Although certain prints are in trend this season, you need to follow certain rules while sporting a particular print. Some prints look good only on particular body shape and only when teamed correctly. Mentioned below are some dos and don’ts of wearing printed clothes.

Use Prints to Your Benefit

Always remember that the print that you are wearing should complement your body shape and your style and you should not feel intimidated by it. Fashion is afterall , being comfortable in your own skin and you should never pick or wear a fashionable garment if it does not suit your body structure. There are certain prints which can make you look taller and certain prints to make you look slimmer. Similarly, certain prints, if placed correctly, can make you look fuller in certain areas of your body.

Do Not Overdo Your Print

Loving prints does not mean that you wear them from head to toe! This will make you look like a total fashion disaster. Make your prints stand out by placing them correctly on your body. If you have a pear-shaped body, don a solid coloured top and a printed calf-length skirt to give the illusion of slender waist and hips. If you want to mix and match prints, you need to do it carefully as not all prints gel well with each other.

Pick the Right Design And Pattern According to Your Body

Prints, when placed correctly, can help you camouflage your fat and create an illusion of slenderness. Do not wear big prints if you are on the plumper side too, choose small prints which create an illusion of a slender body. Similarly, avoid horizontal stripes or designs if you are curvy. Look for vertical patterns to given a slim look

Animal Print Rules

When it comes to prints, less is definitely more. Animal prints are very hard to do them right and if not worn correctly, you may make a fashion faux pas. Which animal print would suit you and which won’t be decided only after you wear the garment but remember never to match similar printed accessories or shoes with the dress. An animal printed dress looks best when teamed with plain shoes or minimal accessories

Stripes Rules

Striped prints never go out of fashion. Wearing vertical stripes will make you look taller, but if you are a little on the heavier side, wearing horizontal striped print will make you look broader and heavier.

Printed Accessories

Printed accessories look best with solid coloured kurtis. You cannot team up a printed dress with printed shoes as these might steal the focus from your dress and create a messy and mixed up effect. While wearing prints, you need to keep the focus on the print only by keeping other accessories and shoes minimal and plain. If you want to wear printed shoes, ensure that your dress is plain.

#Idea 4 - Kurti Print Designs to Make You Look Fuller in Certain Areas of Your Body

Avoid prints on your bosom if you have an apple shaped body and avoid prints on your bottom if you have a pear-shaped body. This basic print rule will make you slay any print in style. Whether a print complements your body shape or not depends on what print you choose and how you place it on your body. If you have a heavy upper body, you should opt for dark coloured outfits with small prints or solid hues. Trick the onlooker by wearing vibrant prints on the lower body to shift the focus. Similarly, if you have a heavier bottom, opt for dark coloured fabrics for your bottom in either solid tones or small prints. You can opt for vibrant hues or larger prints for your upper body to create an illusion of fullness there.

Is Print a Focal Point or Camouflage?

Well, this can be really tricky to ascertain. But one thing is sure: wearing an ensemble with florals, geometric patterns or Aztec patterns make your eyes go to the print. It is like creating an optical illusion. You can place these prints on areas of your body which you want to highlight. Camouflage does help in hiding your fat but if you use it along with prints, you can easily confuse people about your weight!
