When life gives you lemons…style a cute outfit. No really though! If you follow me on Instagram then you already caught a glimpse of this darling lemon peplum top from Current Clothing (if you don’t follow me on Instagram, hop to it!). It is funny to see what fashions come and go, and food items have made their way to the top in recent months. I used to think graphic prints were not for me…apparently I did not do a good job styling them in the past. Here is how to transform graphic prints from kitschy to chic!
Do not over do it
You all know I am a fan of matching coordinates, but there is such thing as being too matchy! Maybe you own a pair of lemon shaped earrings, and a printed lemon tote. Congratulations, you’re up with the times, but this doesn’t mean you should wear them all together. The only way this works is if the colors are contrasting tones. A yellow top, with the same yellow earrings, and the same yellow bag is boring and a little bit tacky. That is why I incorporated a neon purse into the mix! Although also a lemon shape, it is not a carbon copy of printed top and the colors are fluorescent.
Elegance is key
Style your printed garments just as elegantly as you would a solid. I paired this lemon peplum top with sleek stonewash jeans. Can you imagine how different it would have looked had I rocked a pair of bright green shorts instead? I accessorized with classic stiletto pumps, and dainty jewelry including my brand new Kapten & Son watch. Creating a balance between playful and polished will keep your printed pieces fashionable and fabulous. Have any of you fallen in and out of love with a style of garment?!
