    Has anyone mastered the mixed prints trend this season? Whether you have or not, love it or hate…its an extremely hard trend to get right. If you need help definitely check out my article THE ART OF MIXING PRINTS on www.etcblogmag.com! But for a mini lesson let’s check out Solange who is the Queen of Mixing Prints! She recently was spotted in NYC at the Alexander Wang after party rocking this look- embellished palazzo pants, a printed top, denim jacket, a bright messenger bag, and a Babatunde hat. The hat is from an African designer…Solange recently shot a video there and must have come across the designer.

    I haven’t found their official website but here’s their facebook in case you’re interested in their hats. When looking at Solange’s outfit there is really no method to her madness…and that’s what I love about her. But to master this trend keep this in mind…for the look for less I first started with this navy printed palazzo pants, added a stripped shirt that has both navy and white which I pulled from the pants. That is the key to mixing prints…you can mix any print you want but make sure the colors are similar. I then pulled the pink print from the pants to find this amazing bright messenger bag. Finally, I added a brown hat, brown & navy wedges, and simple jewelry. So we are definitely mixing prints but for some reason it just flows. What do you think of mixing prints? Did we nail it?

    Beyoncé looks killer in this fit! It's a very simple look. Instead of rocking all white from head to toe she added nudes to warm it up. If you're feeling Bey's trench coat just know that it's a Barneys exclusive brand design and it can be yours for $1395. Are you inspired by Mrs. Carter look?
