LFW - The Streetstyle Inspirations

As swizz beatz rapped “onto the next one”…fashion week, that is.

#LFW has crept up and left us in such a flash that we’re left with the pictures, next season’s trends and some serious street style inspiration.

What we love about the Brits besides the obvious reasons is this amazing skill they have to make clean, classic, prep outfits look edgy and striking. This ability is one to hone, channel and handle with care.

Fashion “Faux Pas” Done Right

In fashion, there are always faux pas that are pretty much shunned by the rest of the fashion community. However, some of these faux pas that we have been turning our noses up to for as long as we can remember are becoming more and more acceptable each passing fashion season. We here at Shoppalu are now here to help you out with turning these faux pas into great outfits.

The faux pas that we’re looking at today is mixing different prints. Often enough, when prints are mixed, an outfit can look too busy and even tacky at times. However, when done right, mixing prints can look chic, and really bring a new sense of life to your outfit. Here are some pointers for when mixing prints:

1. It’s important that when choosing prints, you try and keep colours within the same family. This will tone down the outfit whilst still achieving the look that you want.
2. It’s important that you try and choose two different sized prints, preferable a smaller print mixed with a larger print. This keeps your outfit from looking too busy and overwhelming.
3.If wearing more than 2 articles of clothing, try and only mix prints of two (maximum 3) pieces. For example: top and bottoms, top and clutch, skirt and clutch. This is important because if mixing prints with every possibly article of clothing, the outfit will become very overwhelming and straining to any eye.

When dressing yourself in a “faux pas done right”, it’s important that you trust your instincts while working with your own personal style. Check out below for some great “mixed print” outfits.

Style Idol of the Week: Marina Munoz

A stylist who has made the blog rounds, we love Marina’s knack for putting together vintage pieces with designer duds and mixing them with affordable pieces. Marina was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, growing up in Buenos Aires and the Berkshire Mountains which is reflected in her own personal style.
