I always say that print on print fashion items should be paired with a solid piece so as to create a sense of balance. This has been a fashion rule but heck we can always break one as long as we stick true to fashion’s style. In addition, we do so when we feel bold, daring, and creative as prints always stand out from the crowd.

Here are some tips on how to wear print on print fashion this 2022.


Wear something with the same print or pattern but in a contrasting color. Just like this polka-dotted number in black and white. The inversed contrast will not look too busy but is easy and pleasing to the eyes.

Same Palette

Try something within the same color family. Simply look into the color and not at the print. With this, you are matching based on the hue. Use a floral print as your top with brown as the major color used then pair it with a checkered bottom with shades of yellow and red.

The safest way to go is still by going monochromatic. The blue and white paisley print on the skirt matches very well with the blue and white checkered top. All I can say is that the combination has been used in a tasteful manner.

Regardless of the print but having a single color that dominates the whole ensemble is very appealing. The harmony of colors is what makes the look chic and fashionable. Just take this animal-printed top and a polka-dotted pair of pants where red is the main color.

Complementary Colors

Similar to the color blocking trend, make use of the color wheel. You can never go wrong with pairing complementary colors such as this blue and orange number with a striped top and floral bottom. Also, take note of the size of the prints you are going to mix. Opt for thinner stripes on the top as opposed to the bigger florals printed on the pants.

Which style would you try? While the contrast is compelling, there is something harmonious to look forward to in each look. Hope these ideas have inspired you to wear the print on print trend.
