Statement separates for spring

Paper Crown Karoo Top, $148 & Paper Crown Namib Shorts, $165

There’s something I love about pairing bold pieces together to show my personality on any given day. Whether I’m happy about beautiful weather on a Saturday afternoon, or celebrating a friend’s birthday, using color and mixing prints is one of the best ways to make your wardrobe reflect your mood. I have to admit that dresses are my go-to on most occasions. But lately, the more I’ve incorporated statement separates into my wardrobe, I’ve realized just how many ways I can mix and match these pieces with other items already in my closet.

With the matching set trend on the rise, wearing separates has never been easier. When designing my Spring collection for Paper Crown I wanted to make sure we offered a variety of separates in different fabrications that lend themselves well to making a matching set or print mixing. Keep reading to see some of my favorite matching sets and mixed prints of this season…
