Enhance your Instagram’s visual interest with Prints and Patterns!

I’m always trying to enhance the visual appearance of my photos, whether it’s creating a certain theme or filter, I love the idea of adding some artistic taste to my feed. I find that when you take a bold pattern or print and apply it properly to your outfit, it draws more attention to a photo. And as prints and patterns are becoming more and more popular, having that ability to style some of your outfits with a distinct pattern creates a more interesting and engaging platform for your viewers.

You don’t have to be a style genius to be able to incorporate a stand-out print into your outfit. Just remember one thing when playing with prints and patterns: DO NOT OVER-DO IT!

If you are new to the world of prints and patterns (like me) my best suggestion would be to stick with ONE patterned piece and have the rest of your outfit fairly neutral to avoid clashing.

For this outfit, I paired these bold geometric-print, high-waist, wide-leg pants with a neutral navy blue spaghetti strap bodysuit and plain black leather booties. To finish off the look I added my cream Etnia Barcelona geometric frames with Sapphire Transitions Style coloured lenses, which matched the navy tones in the top and pants and really pulled the whole outfit together.

Cooler weather won’t stop me from bringing on the heat

his year Vancouver missed that one week of crisp sunny Autumn and instead got bombarded with a month’s worth of rain for the first two weeks of September. Luckily, I spent my last few days of summer in some fall inspired outfits!

I found this beautiful 100% wool hat at Aritzia on Granville and thought it would be the perfect POP of color to brighten any neutral outfit.

And OF COURSE I had to pull out my favorite Fall frame from last year by Andy Wolf Eyewear with Transitions Lenses that tint into the perfect Emerald shade every time.

Keeping my outfits a bit on the spicy side this
year. Rainfalls have definitely been a barrier for my outfits in previous years, so pairing my outfit with something that can cover me up without taking away from the whole look is ideal.

I love having the cardigan and my frames be the
same shade, because if I chose to take off one or the other I would still have color somewhere in my outfit.

PS: How gorgeous are the sunset amber style color lenses by Transitions Lenses?!?

This final outfit I have been DYING to take photos in. I’ve
owned this slip dress FOREVER now and was always too shy to wear it by itself.
Until finally I found some inspo while browsing through the gram and decided it
would be perfect with a white mock-neck sweater underneath!
