Prints on Prints

I love the idea of wearing prints on prints this season. It shows how creative and fashionable one can be with choosing different prints to make an ensemble.  Close patterns, colors and shape should come into consideration when choosing two different types of prints that are going to be worn together. This duo is perfect with pants and top, midi-skirt, pencil skirt, maxi skirt and a top.

With this hot weather, in most parts of Africa and summer coming outside Africa, owning a flowing, boob-tube, short sleeve African print summer is a must. Choose vibrant colors to go with the season.
