How to Mix Prints + Statement Pieces

One of the most fun things about Fashion Week is pushing the boundaries of what you would normally wear, whether it’s playing with prints or stepping out in up-and-coming designers that many have never heard of. Which was the case with this new designer discovery.

Dora Abodi is a rising designer from Budapest and the moment I laid eyes on her unexpected prints I was hooked. When I wore this look out on the streets of New York I was stopped repeatedly and asked who I was wearing and told that it looked like a Matisse. Arty prints for the win!

The inclination when wearing statement prints is to veer towards neutral accessories, which is normally a safe bet. But why zig when you can zag? Fashion should be fun so why not experiment! Somehow adding gingham heels, a snakeskin clutch and leopard-print sunglasses works. The trick to all of this prints mixing is that all of the colors in the individual pieces relate to each other, which creates a cohesive look rather than a Mrs.-Roper-is-tripping-on-acid-again situation.
