Start putting your hats and gloves away; spring is on the horizon. While you might have a box full of warm weather clothes to pull out, you should also be looking into the newest and latest in fashion. This season, it’s all about the prints and patterns. Here are some ways to incorporate these styles into your spring wardrobe.
Try a patterned top with a solid bottom (or vice versa)
Oftentimes, women struggle with wearing patterns because they feel like they look too overdone. However, there’s balance when you combine a print top with a solid-colored bottom or the other way around. Offsetting a busy pattern can really pull your outfit together. For example, if you’re looking to rock a dazzling polka dot blouse, do so with a classic pair a jeans. The contrast will make your outfit look and feel prim and proper.
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, try a pair of printed bottoms instead. Black and white statement trouser pants are wide-leg so, they’re roomy and comfortable but still create a small waistline. To complete this getup, wear a solid-colored shirt. However, be sure that the fabric doesn’t have any ridges or lines. You’re going to want a blouse that is one full color and material so that both items look great together.
Dress it up
The great thing about patterned dresses is that a little goes a long way. For example, you could be wearing a long, black maxi dress that’s mostly one color. However, at the top and bottom of the dress there could be an eye-catching print. This a subtle and fun way to incorporate some pizzazz into your wardrobe.
But don’t just stop at dresses. There are plenty of skirt options, as well. Cotton, printed skirts are the perfect material to create a flattering shape. Plus, the fabric is easily breathable so you can move and sit comfortably in the warmer weather.
Put it on your feet
If you’re not too sure about patterned clothing, there’s another route you can go: shoes. The trick is to consider textures as well as patterns. You don’t want to wear an outfit that’s all one shade and fabric. Instead, try and mix and match materials with your patterned shoes so that your getup is innovative and fun.
In addition, try to ease into prints with neutral colors. That way, you won’t feel over the top.
Give them a shot
Some women tend to stray away from patterns because they don’t know where to start. For ladies that are fans of monochromatic outfits, fresh prints can be a little overwhelming. However, finding the perfect one for you is easier than you think. Just browse our online clothing catalog. If a shirt, dress, skirt or other garment with a print catches your eye, just give it a shot. Order the article of clothing in your size and commit to wearing it. Here are some possible patterns to try:
- Cheetah print.
- Polka dots.
Just go with your gut, and you will never go wrong.
