The power of contrast
This season fashion proposes a bold change of perspective to the female universe. The game of contrast is the secret weapon of the trendiest fashion designers. On the catwalks we have seen matching of geometric and blooming prints, for example by Moschino, Missoni, Red Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana, shades that recall the color theory at Fausto Puglisi, Roberto Cavalli and Diane Von Furstenberg, the timeless dualism between white and black for Givenchy, Michael Kors, Comme des Garcons and Jimmy Choo.
For the law of opposites, this mix and match of sophisticated or classic patterns and vibrant or soft colors acquires more emphasis and reinforces the look with a hint of extravagance and a good dose of charm. Follow our tips to find out which are the strongest, most elegant or romantic combinations of this season.
To mix patterns in an uncoordinated but definitely stylish way, just choose a theme. Geometric designs and dark warm colors on one side, a delicate palette and romantic flowering of buds on the other. The comparison of different prints is nice, perfect for girls who just wants to have fun with fashion.

Stripes Vs Polka dots
Strictly in black and white, the contrast between stripes and dots is far from being old-fashioned, in fact remains a constant in the panorama of seasonal trends. The stripes this year become more audacious, of varying width and with a casual and sporty mood. The polka dots, on the contrary, remain the most classic among the patterns, always feminine, but this time they play with different textures and become really modern.
