As I was emptying my hard drive to give space for an upcoming trip this weekend, I stumbled upon an old #ootd of myself. You know from this post how I eagerly wanted to flaunt the print on print, but much to my surprise I’ve already worn the said style since last year. How forgetful of me.
Gone are the days when our trusted office slacks is in mandatory monochromatic style. As a uniformly old black transforms to two, three tones brighter, sometimes vividly boasts rainbow of prints. It is just amazing how fashion can be liberating these days.
In every Fashionista’s play book, a statement piece is a must have. It might be a designer bag or shoes, sinful glimmering jewelries, silk scarves; anything that instantly makes your own signature style.
If there’s a fashion era I would like to time warp on, that would be the 70’s.
Since January, I’ve been itching myself to try the print over print style. We all know this has been trending and hitting likes on all runway shows this year. You might have noticed the parade of animal prints paired with Victorian watercolor floral, highly contrasted colors bombed each other and not mention the bright comic rave prints that were artfully transformed into eye-candy pop tailored pieces. Honestly, I did scratched my head at one time on disbelief with some odd-pairing, but once you got it all right then it is definitely a beauty.
To further immerse myself with a specific look, I rolled down some me time in online window drooling via retail sites like One Stop Plus, Top Shop, Dorothy Perkins and Mod Cloth and I found interesting outfits which are totally to die for! So here are my top 7 pieces of this season’s print overload trend:

As confident as I am in most of the pictures here in my blog, there is one thing that I am not so sure in wearing.. the crop top.
