To achieve this look, pick a colour from your printed shirt and match it with a pair of trousers in the same colour but in a different shade, then layer a plain t-shirt underneath your shirt for an interesting contrast. Finish the look off with a pair of sandals for a casual holiday vibe.

A mix of different prints will always give you eye-catching results, and the easiest way to do this is to match whatever print you fancy with stripes. As bold as stripes can be, it functions more like a neutral, pairing easily with different looks no matter the thickness, direction or colour.
