“When it comes to print, few love it and many fear it. So what intimidates most people about print? It’s bright, fun, and adds a little spice to your wardrobe. The scary thing about playing with print is that many fear that doing it wrong may lead to feeling uncomfortable, out of place, etc. So we are here to give you pointers on how to do it RIGHT. If you are a little intimidated by print, start small and work your way up. You can simply start with a printed accessory such as a belt, clutch, or even shoes! As you work your way up into more complicated prints, remember to have a common color that resonates throughout every piece. Below are some great examples of playing with print, from the kiddy pool to the deep end. And there’s no better person to show you how it’s done than one of our favorite fashionista – Solange

1. Take it Slow
If you’re on the beginner level, when it comes to playing with print, start out with something not too subtle. Solange gave us a cool way of playing with print without it being too bold by hiding it under a bright pastel pink jacket.

2. Ying and Yang
If you want to pack a little more punch but isn’t ready for the deep end, try a fun button up shirt with a little color that you can pair with some neutrals such as black, white, grey, or brown.

3. Power of Printed Pants
Feeling creative and want to switch it up? Try a pant with a nice pattern and even go all out with a nice printed pump or bag!

4. Head To Toe Print
Ok, so you’re not new to print but you’re ready to spice it up? Rock out with an entire printed ensemble just like Solange did in her performance on Jimmy Fallon. You know what they say, if you can’t take the heat…

5. Bold and Beautiful
You’re swimming in the deep end! What cooler way to have fun than to clash prints? Polka dots and chevron? Oh my!

6. Mix and Match
If you’re really a pro… you know how to perfectly put together an ensemble with a variety of prints and colors. #goals
