Style Guide: Print vs Texture

Explore the endless labyrinth of elaborate prints, or defy the convention by experimenting with bold textures, to tell a story through your smart fashion sense, because they offer a layer of unexplored depth beyond colours, hues and tones.

Clever use of print can help to bring out your personality, but don’t stick to just a single motif as it can appear repetitive and dull. A plethora of motifs create striking juxtapositions and keep the base a neutral colour, so they don’t clash and compete for attention.

But if you think that is perhaps a tad too adventurous for your quietly confident nature, try a discreet-but-no-less-conservative approach. Texture can provide an instant lift to the tried-and-tested. A simple piece of ruff can do wonders to the flattest of straight stripes that no British collars can.
