Patterns and prints, the words often used interchangeably, have different meanings. While a pattern is a repeated design, a print is a design that’s printed onto the fabric (not woven or embroidered). And, playing with patterns or prints into your look is one of the best ways to show that you’ve put real thought into getting dressed. Watch this video or read on if you need help in understanding how to play with prints and patterns. Then head to JCPenney and start shopping for the latest women’s clothing now!
Pattern on Pattern
Adding pattern on pattern is an easy way to be bold with fashion. When you mix patterns together, try to keep one pattern bigger than the other, such as this smaller stripe with a larger floral pattern. And if you don’t want to be super bold, match the colors in your prints.
A great way to ease prints and patterns into your look is with accessories like handbags with tropical prints, stripes, or floral designs. Use these patterns as an outfit inspiration to create a simple look with white jeans and a solid top.
Play with Colors
An adorable, ruffled dress with floral prints will do the mixing and matching for you. The colorful print will give you a fun fashion moment, and the tiered ruffled bottom is a great silhouette. Plus, it’s easy to move in! Just add a white denim jacket to break up the pattern and your look is complete.
