Meet Charlotte Groeneveld of one our all-time favourite fashion blogs The Fashion Guitar. After growing up in The Netherlands, and spending four years in London, Charlotte is now based in New York where she lives with her husband and two children. With her chic and polished approach to dressing, who better to style our exclusive Art Atelier pieces and share her tips on how to wear print?
“This look is super feminine and even a little sexy, but in a very proper way. The breton skirt dresses down the fitted printed top, and the heels add a little extra femininity. The clutch adds a subtle hint of colour, which is particularly beautiful in spring time.”
“I love the embellishment on this top, which compliments the graphic pattern of the skirt. Not to mention the mix of COLOUR, which is absolutely stunning in summer.”
“Draping a jacket on my shoulders is MY signature. I love the way the jacket works with the top – which has another retro feel to it – in combination with the flared jeans. it’s a very wearable, yet very feminine look.”
5 MINUTES WITH THE FASHION GUITAR
How would you describe your style?
In terms of style I can be feminine or very casual, it really depends on the occasion, the time of day, or the trend I’m loving at that moment. Right now I’m obsessed with the 60s and 70s so I wear lots of double denim looks, with high waists, flares, and retro jackets.
How do you incorporate print into your everyday wardrobe?
With my obsession for the retro and bohemian that’s going on right now I’m finding florals and stripes very interesting.
What are your tips for wearing head to toe print?
I believe prints work – even mixing prints – when the balance between colours is good. When you work that out well, you can add multiple prints into a look. One rule is: Fabrics and good cuts. Make sure the style you wear compliments your body, and you are free to go with any print. A style like this looks a million dollars because the fabrics are of a high quality.
How do you accessorise a printed look?
Simple, subtle, and not drawing too much attention away from the print.
