Spring and summer 2018 are shaping up to be a print lover’s heaven! Stripes, black and white polka dots, pop culture prints, florals, logos, bold abstracts, they’re all dominating style trends this year. But, where do you begin when choosing the perfect prints for yourself?
What I’m wearing:
Old DVF dress (love this) | Kate Spade clutch (old) | 14K gold chevron earrings |
Red lip | Nails: OPI Lavendurable
I could tell you that you should consider your shape, size, and height when choosing prints. And, there’s some sound advice there. Ultimately, however, you should choose prints that inspire, flatter, and suit your style sensibilities. Any trendy print that fails to do just that should be a pass.
This might come as a surprise to you, but I’m short. Ha. Seriously, I’m only 5’4.” Fashion convention would warn me stay away from bold, all-over prints because they overwhelm my smaller frame. What do I do? I spot a DVF dress in the boldest, all-over, red twirl print, and I buy it. Why? Because the print inspires me, flatters me, and suits my style sensibilities.
