Not so keen on wearing top to bottom print ? Well we totally get it… There are ways however of it looking less OTT. Kate Hudson wore a top to bottom printed Temperley jumpsuit to the GLSEN Respect Awards in Beverly Hills on October 21, 16. Somehow she didn’t look that over-the-top, CIIN breaks it down for you.
Symmetry is a good thing when wearing prints. It allows the eye to rest easily, there is a rhyme and reason to the outfit which really calms things down. Kate’s complete look was center aligned, including her hair part. Not a coincidence for sure, I am sure her seasoned stylist, Sophie Lopez had a well-thought out plan. The center part, the deep v neckline, and then the central part down the leg all worked together perfectly.
Secondly, although the jumpsuit is sequined top to bottom, it doesn’t look loud, thanks to the earth tones. They calm down the beading and the lime green substantially.
Another important element is the type of print, the Missoni style chevron is gentler on the eye than loud florals in primary colors. You may have assumed that the shiny beads and bright lime would trump any other colors scheme, but not here.
Lastly, there is nothing competing with the jumpsuit. A lot of the times the ‘noise’ is created by clashing prints or contrasting styles. The white clutch and nude pumps are meant to be invisible giving all the attention to the jumpsuit and it works !
