How to put together an outfit with one printed piece

Top: H&M, Skirt: Miss Selfridge, Shoes: Steve Madden, Bangle & Necklace: Gifted.

I get asked a lot on how to match colours in an outfit. Especially when you have a piece with busy prints, like this top. This is what I usually do: first I pick something neutral to offset the colours of the printed piece. Here it's the black skirt and stockings. It would have worked without the stockings too, but they add drama and balance the amount of skin shown on top. {Plus the weather's becoming chilly!} With the clothes done, I add on accessories. I like them to match the clothes, but not too obviously. The violet colour in the top is subtle so I decided to make it pop using the accessories and shoes, which is why everything has violet very obviously in it- violet heels, a violet stone necklace and a bangle with violet-red gems. And viola! {typo intended}, the ensemble's done!
I hope this was helpful! I'll do a few more posts on this topic whenever I can. Until then, ciao!
