Wearing colorful prints and patterns is also a means of looking creative and unique on your street style. Like Battaglia, opt for ones that showcase your mood and personality. Traditionally, prints like stripes, houndstooth, and checks are for classic fashion personality while geometric, abstract, and floral are the preferred prints of artistic women. Wearing mixed prints can be trendy nowadays, but Battaglia prefers wearing a matching set over them. So, when wearing colorful prints, always keep the rest of your outfit and accessories neutral to avoid looking flashy and over-the-top.
Whether it’s a printed scarf, a statement belt or stacks of jewelry, embroidery or hand-sewn crystals, a structured bag or another pair of to-die-for shoes, Battaglia always makes sure that she puts her own individual stamp on anything she wears. She loves jewelry and is not afraid to pile it on. In her way, is an example of high-end meets street. If you’re not a fan of bright colors, go for accessories in a muted color palette, but keep them interesting enough. For instance, a pair of fur boots, color blocked bag, studded boots, oxford shoes, and even printed clutch can spice up your simple outfits instantly.
