Some of the most exciting and downright fun labels show during London Fashion Week, from Charles Jeffrey to Richard Quinn. So it’s no surprise that the street style in the mostly overcast city is equally as striking. Among the many bright colors—there were plenty of orange dresses and colorful handbags to be had—fashion week attendees in London showed up in statement-making prints. Captured by Acielle of Style Du Monde, these Brits gave us a lesson, seven in fact, on how to properly wear the boldest of prints—from poppy florals, monochromatic graphics, to oversized polka dots.
When it comes to expressing yourself through clothing, try doing it the London way—keep calm and print on!
Strike a Balance
Pull together a pair of loud pants with polished basics such as a tailored blazer and simple undershirt.
Connect the Dots
A playful spotted shirt makes a serious statement when paired with tapered trousers and a chic day bag.
A bright, ’80s print top feels modern when paired with relaxed denim and timeless accessories.
What to pair with a patterned skirt? Choose a shade from the print and stick to it.
An eye-catching top deserves equally eye-catching accessories—note the full monochromatic color palette.
Check It Twice
You know what pairs wonderfully with monochrome checkers? More checks! Tie in the rest of your look by keeping things simple, i.e. a pair of black trousers and sneakers.
Take a cue from the main part of your ensemble, in this case, a striped crochet dress, and opt for accessories with similar aesthetics.
