There is no better print to wear in spring than blooms! A wardrobe bursting with florals is a great way to celebrate the season. Put on an off-shoulder maxi dress, wear it with your comfiest flats and tote a straw bag to complete the look. For casual days or quick errands, a shirred long sleeve blouse with a floral print will do the trick. You can wear it with a pair of straight pants and your preferred sandals. You can also wear flowers on your bottoms! Try it on a midi skirt for a pretty twirl then pair with a solid-colored top. At home, you can chill with a kimono jacket that will keep you warm and cozy since spring can still have a nip in the air. But for warmer days, put on a smocked long sleeve V-neck top with tie detail. It looks great with skinny jeans or a pair of tapered trousers as well as shorts for quick weekend getaways!
Aside from flowers, this season all calls for other nature’s prettiest patterns. There are various prints that could remind us of nature such as leaves, trees, and animal prints. A mix of flora and paisley is never a bad idea. It’s unique but isn’t over the top. A tie-front top looks great with a pair of shorts on a clear day when you go out for a stroll. Other leafy designs also work great, especially in cool tones such as blue. Dresses also look great when sporting a prominent nature print like large palm leaves. Nothing says, “Can’t wait for summer!” better than that! Another statement-making print is anything animal. Whether it’s tiger, cheetah, zebra, or snake, it shows off your wild side! Try this skirt with a snakeskin print. It will definitely grab attention wherever you go! Staying home? Loungewear doesn’t have to be boring. A pair of boho joggers will give you just the right touch of style while staying comfy.
Keeping it classic
Want to add a bit of interest to your classic silhouettes? Add something just as traditional - polka dots, stripes, plaid, houndstooth, and any good old pattern! They’re timeless and easy to style! If you’re just starting to add patterns to your wardrobe, what better time to introduce something new in your style than spring? Plaid is making a comeback this year and it’s perfect for work or on casual errand days. Geometric patterns also work wonders for any piece in your closet. Wear them in brighter colors for that spring feel. Your sweetheart dress is cuter if it has polka dots or hearts or stars. Look at this adorable polka-dot dress! It’s still a classic LBD with a quirky personality. Who says prints can only work on tops and dresses? You can wear any print on your pants and skirt, pair with a plain white collared shirt for a preppy OOTD. Lastly, don’t forget stripes! This classic pattern is also great for creating illusions. Vertical lines lengthen legs, horizontal lines can widen narrow shoulders and hips, while diagonal lines can add curves.
This season, the wilder your prints, the better! So don’t be afraid to show off bold and bright colors against the craziest patterns you can think of. Why not mix the best of both worlds—bright and floral—on a sheath dress? This combination is a party in itself and is perfect for spring. Reds and purples and everything in between, give your top an exciting flair with a mixed media design. Pair it with relaxed white pants to make the colors pop. Wear this long sleeve dress in this mesmerizing abstract design to your formal evening look. With a side slit, it’s just as sultry as it is chic. At home, you can still feel glamorous as you go about your day with geometric and floral patterns on your kaftan dress. It’s super comfy and breezy, too! Warmer days ahead only mean that we’re finally ready for tunics to make a comeback. In bold hues, your classic tunic can also be fun and stylish!
Prints are always in!
No matter the season, prints and patterns will always be in. You can wear it on a scarf, on a top or bottom, or go full out and don a loud print all over! However you wish, it’s best to put on a look that will make you feel confident and comfortable all season long. Remember: You wear the clothes, the clothes don’t wear you! Here’s to blooming days ahead of you!
