Think Pink in Milan

Hello beautiful people! Who's excited for Friday? You know I am!

Today I'm sharing another look from Milan, it's a check on check outfit. I shared in the past my wish to mix patterns and I thought it would be fun to start with a check on check one. As you can see the coat is checked with a petrol thread through it, which adds an interesting feature to the look. While the checks are more subtle in the coat it still looks chic with the pink checked pants. The pants are a bolder pattern being pink and also featuring a bigger pattern. The weather was rainy and a bit cold so I added a baby pink turtleneck jumper for warmth, but also because I wanted an almost whole pink outfit. The green of the heeled ankle boots compliments well the coat and the whole look. 

Here are a few tips for mixing prints and patterns:
1. Choose a main print/pattern as the focus of the look making the second one an accent. This will help keep the outfit visually appealing and it won't feel overwhelming. 

2. Play with the scale of the prints to add dimension and an interesting touch to the look.

3. When using the same print, mix up the colors while choosing shades that compliment each other. Going for the same pattern creates a chic cool look. If you don't wanna go for a suit vibe with the same print all over choose colors that style well together, which is easy on the eyes and fashionable. 

Have a pink-tastic day!
