3 Ways To Pull Off Clashing Trends

Clash of the trends in Coach 1941 Spring 2017

These days, fashion seems to be favouring unlikely trends that actually complement each other – sending a mish-mash of colours, prints, and even cultures down the runway. It’s almost unexpected, but “more is more” is making a comeback and we’re considering this our cue to experiment. To help us show you how you can reconfigure your wardrobe with this styling trick, we’re turning our attention to Coach 1941’s Spring 2017 collection.

The Coach 1941 Spring 2017 collection is fearless when it comes to making a loud statement and having fun with fashion. Each piece is effortlessly versatile and undeniably expressive, daring the wearer to embrace her inner rockabilly rebel with confidence. Who says clashing trends is scary? Ahead, we share three ways you can pull off some serious eye-catching style clashing.

Gender Clash

Mixing and matching feminine details with masculine elements and vice versa – because why not, right? Dressing up is all about wearing your personality, and you do not have to sacrifice anything to achieve your desired look. Go ahead, put on a dainty floral Mix Print Circle Dress with a pair of chunky Roccasin Cut Out Sneaker. Pick up a Moto Prairie Jacket with delicate details of lace and florals contrasted against a ‘borrowed-from-the-boys’ ensemble.
Pattern Blocking

Styling mismatched prints is probably the trickiest clashing trend of all. What was once considered a fashion faux pas is now a welcoming and rejuvenating take on style. When pattern blocking, remember: look for a singular element. For instance, choose opposing prints – nostalgic florals (seen on the Reversible Satin Jacket) on leopard prints on stripes – that share a similar hue.

We know that mastering print-on-print can be overwhelming. If you’re still getting used to pattern blocking, why not accessorise with an embellished bag, such as the Double Dinky in Glovetanned Leather with Wild Tea Rose, instead?

Colour Surprise

This season is all about unexpected colour combos that will refresh our sartorial palate. An explosion of vibrancy has dominated the runways, on the streets and into our wardrobe, and for that we say: time to bring out the colours! Match your red Shark Crewneck with a pair of green culottes, or take on an orange-and-pink combo with the Rouge 25 bag. Let your individuality reign supreme.
