3 Ways to Wear Prints This Spring 2018

Spring is definitely in the air, signaling the season of exuberance and frivolity. Patterns, colors and silhouettes are in full bloom, bursting with life and infectious energy. Also apparent, is a flirty and feminine undercurrent running through flamboyant ruffled sleeves, tiered skirts and asymmetrical lines, further highlighting the eye-catching florals, leaf prints and graphic patterns –almost silently daring everyone to go big or go home. Here are three ways to inject a pop of print to your spring outfits.

Catchy Coordinates

More versatile than a tailored office blazer and skirt set, more functional than pantsuits and less corporate than a button down top and trousers combo, coordinates are fabulous go-to, throw on ensembles, and are a fun way of addressing the everyday dilemma of “what do I wear?” –because these already matching sets are great for building different looks, and are effortless ways to inject bright colors and prints to your outfits. For spring, look for coordinates with leaf, palm and floral prints. Not only do they look bright and fresh, but they’re easy to dress up and down as well. Wear with sneakers during the day, and switch to strappy heels with a leather jacket draped over your shoulders for evenings.

Tiered Off-Shoulder Dress

Ultra-feminine and romantic, off-shoulder dresses sporting the most spellbinding colors and prints will be the reason for having sun-kissed shoulders all-season long. Brunch with the ladies, outdoor soirées, and poolside gatherings will call for these ode-to-spring frocks. And along with off-shoulder cuts, are just as statement-making details in the form of ruffles, tiers, ruched fabric, flowy skirts and of course, bold prints –all paying homage to the coveted boho-chic look. And because these scene-stealing pieces already scream spring, accessorizing can be kept to a minimum. Tassel earrings, nude sandals and a rattan bag easily complement a sunny, floral off-shoulder dress.

Asymmetrical Dress with Front Slit

Did someone say happy hour? A printed dress featuring unexpected cuts and detailing would be perfect. Prints and patterns can still be proudly worn even after the sun has set and when the cityscape is already bright and pulsating with neon lights and party-ready beats. A black and white floral print for instance, becomes the perfect mix of sweet and sultry, with a silhouette that features a sexy and modern asymmetrical top with a front slit at the skirt. Complete the look with a sleek leather jacket and sky-high stilettos that will take you from cocktails to late-night dancing with the girls.
