Style blogger & media personality Sharon Ojong is all about pushing boundaries when it comes to her style, and that is why she created the “Style Overdose” series – where she shares how she rocks different style trends. See a few episodes here.
Today, she is sharing how she mixed and matched different prints including African prints in New York.
Check it out!
For her first look, she’s gone floral pairing a dark hued floral print jacket with a light pair of trousers. Mixing and matching is all about making sense of chaos and blending prints successfully. Her look is cool and comfy showing that when mixing and matching you can still keep warm in the New York weather.
Her 2nd look is all about underlying tones. She has toned down her print dress with a black coat and added more vibrancy to her look with an Ankara print bag. She also toned down her look even more with black stockings and shoes.
With this look it’s go big or go home!
Sharon has paired a vibrant pair of print shorts with a striped jacket and a head wrap. A key aspect to remember is when you have so many colours, you will want to look for a common colour that ties the prints together. In this case, that color is dark blue.
