You can’t shop any retailer who knows what’s up without seeing ikat zig across the shelves (or across the screen), but many shoppers zag when they’re unsure about getting pieces to match up. I conferred with our stylists and came up with a few suggestions that turn ikat into ‘I can’.
I can’t tell you how much I love Lila paired with a predominately navy ikat print. Here’s a suggestion: blur your eyes when staring down a pattern to see its fundamental color. Lila is fundamentally red, and pieces that are fundamentally deep blue complement her undertones like diamonds.
Can you see how Eye Full towers over busy prints like iIkat without being simply solid? Articles of any single color from a print can solidify a look, but they don’t have to be basic about it.
I can see you experimenting with Lenice; she keeps her ikat on the inside and lets you dabble in complementary colors like coral and rust. Oh wait– you left the house in a pairing you later decided you hate? NBD; Just fold her back up into a classic boot.
You can pair plenty with ikat, including more ikat. Just be sure the prints are color-coordinated and sized either super similarly or wildly different; no in-between.
