7 Über-Specific Print-Mixing Examples That Actually Work

COLLAGE VINTAGE

There's nothing quite so daunting as dipping into print-mixing. Do florals go with stripes? Maybe? Sometimes? But tackling the trend is surprisingly easy when you keep your patterns of choice specific, like very specific. So we're turning to the streets and looking to the fashion crowd for a few distinct ensembles where print mixing just works. These seven pattern combos are guaranteed to go together, so give them a spin!

Plaid and Polka Dots
Polka dots and plaid are both about as traditional as patterns come, but when combined they make for a fun contrast. Opt for simple colorways (no zany multi-color plaids) and keep the print sizes similar so neither overpowers the look.

Celebs Loooked Great Off The Red Carpet Last Week

MTM3NjY0NDk5OTIxNDYyOTQz
Lessons in styling from Rihanna, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid.   Last week, celebs looked particularly good on the streets of New York — and no, it wasn't because they were dressed in head-to-toe black. On Monday evening, professional badass Rihanna looked fresh and spring-y (sorry) in afloral, embroidered Gucci tracksuit, which she paired with Céline ankle boots. (You, dear readers, already know our verdict on this.) And on Wednesday, the singer made style headlines yet again with a black ensemble, which she accessorized with white wrap heels from Dior's spring 2016 collection. The "Kiss It Better" singer wasn't the only musician out and about in New York City however. Former One Direction member Zayn Malik walked broodily around town in an almost monochromatic look; the singer wore an...

As the presidential campaigns head into the April 19 New York primary, Hillary Clinton has expanded her fashion-focused Made for History program. Following the success of the designer tees by Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, and Public Schoolthat launched in February, team HRC is debuting new designs today from Joseph Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung, and Pamela Love. “Personally, I am supporting Hillary because I believe she represents the future—and has the experience and knowledge to carry out change on issues that matter to the country, such as equal pay for women, LGBT equality, climate change, and energy,” said Altuzarra. His design, a bold black-and-white stripe logo, calls to mind the monochrome details from his recent Spring show—in fact, we’d say this top would...

Introducing Fall’s Trickiest Trend: Head-to-Toe Yellow

00-holding-now-trending-marigold
Of all the colors of the rainbow, yellow isn’t exactly rolling in aesthetic goodwill. It’s tricky to wear, and, depending on your complexion can conjure up a jaundiced effect; gone wrong, the effect can be downright frowsy. All that aside, the shade’s having a hell of a moment, as countless designers proposed head-to-toe looks in the shade for Fall, in every possible permutation of mustard, ochre, goldenrod, and not one but two languid gowns in saffron velvet (courtesy of Valentino andArthur Arbesser). Take Demna Gvasalia’s velvet suiting, or an electric lemon knit maxi dress spotted on the runway at Proenza Schouler. If the prospect still has you quaking in trepidation, take heart—and bolster your spirits with the not-so-distant memories of...

The Best Vintage Labels To Hunt Down, According To 3 Star Dealers

19
Browsing vintage clothing online is easily one of my favorite pastimes—but, like strangers’ Instagram feeds and true crime articles on Wikipedia—it’s easy to get sucked in for hours on end. One reason is that it’s hard to figure out how to narrow down a search—”floral dress” will yield listings in the tens of thousands on eBay, and looking for a leather motorcycle jacket on there could occupy your time for days. Of course, sometimes Targeted searches often yield better results, but beyond the usual suspects—Levi’s denim, Chanel handbags—who really knows what to look for? Well, there are a few people who make it their business to do just that. Vintage dealers spend their days researching, hunting for, and curating pieces for their...

This Fashion Insider Builds Her Wardrobe Around an Epic Jewelry Collection

For Grayscale PR founder Fallon Nachmani, personal style is less about trends and more about investment pieces that can transform any look—particularly jewelry. Her agency specializes in lesser-known jewelers from around the world, including the U.S., Brazil, and Lebanon, so she knows a thing or two about upgrading a minimal outfit with avant-garde extras. Whether she’s spending a day in her Tribeca office or attending a black-tie event, she relies on statement earrings, a classic watch, or a cluster of bracelets to pack a punch—sometimes all of them at once. Her approach to her job is specialized, too. After a decade of working in the industry, she noticed that designers—particularly young and emerging designers—wanted a more intimate, hands-on PR experience. That means...
