If there is one trend that has stayed in vogue for quite some time, it’s “print on print” and we predict it’s here to stay. There is a fine line between going OTT and styling it well so we bring you all that you need to know about this one!

Tip #1

Easiest way to sport a print on print is to combine the same print, top to bottom. Sonam Kapoor recently wore an Anamika Khanna, “print on print” ensemble for a press meet at Cannes. We love how the pop of red broke the monotony of the print. Amy Jackson kept it crisp in a Plakinger suit at Cannes. Nude pumps to finish off the look and this one’s a winner.

Tip #2

You can never go wrong with pairing two prints in the same color family.

Nargis Fakhri shows us how you can sport the trend even in a saree. She looks gorgeous in an SVA ensemble. The print on her blouse is a smaller version of the print on her pleats while the black pallu with embroidery breaks the monotony of the print.

Aditi Rao Hydari looks resplendent in a Sabyasachi outfit combining stripes and florals, the base color of both being the same.

This modern minimalistic outfit from Reboot by Anuj Bhutani is a classic example of how you can always rely on a monochromatic print on print.

Tip #3

The idea is to make one print bolder. Mixing two bold prints is a complete no-no. Anushka Sharma gave us major style inspiration when she combined two of our favorite prints, polka dots and stripes. Notice how the polka dots are just slightly more overpowering than the stripes. The green shirt with the floral skirt by Sahil Kochhar also does the trick!

Tip #4

This trend is not restricted to only western wear. Taapsee Pannu donned a Neha Agarwal outfit showing off a brilliant combination of print on print. While the top was a bit more quirky, the skirt had a more subtle yet bigger print.

Anita Dongre’s latest collection is all about prints. This particular outfit is so gorgeous and subtle; you don’t even realize that there is a print on print happening! We also love Malini Ramani’s version of the saree.

Tip #5

Print on print does not only have to be with pieces of clothing. It can even be achieved through accessories like wearing a printed dress with a pair of different print shoes. All you have to worry about is keeping the two slightly away from each other.

For Instance, wear a shorter dress than a long one. Priyanka Chopra chose a floral dress by Ritika Bharwani with polka dot pumps, two completely polar opposite prints but she’s working the look.

You can even create a gap between your prints by wearing a solid color in between, a printed sweat shirt and separate print shoes with plain denims or trousers or even a skirt. Deepika Padukone shows us how to master this in a high waisted Pankaj and Nidhi leather skirt with a striped top and graphic pumps.
