How to wear prints

If you think you might end up looking like a fancy teapot or a mural with prints, here’s some tips for wearing prints from Kanika Kapoor, a fashionista associated with Emilio Pucci (a brand known for its prints).

  • It’s not difficult to carry off prints, though you need to complement the prints or tone down the print with plain colour footwear. And oh, avoid over-accessorizing.
  • At present I’m really into accessorising what I wear with printed scarves and shawls. Also, I like “printed” shoes with a plain dress or relaxed day wear.
  • You can also tie a printed scarf around your bag to add a touch of print to your attire.
