Someday My Prints Will Come

Prints are a tricky thing. There are fashion designers who have built an entire career based on their ability to master the art of the perfect print. (Think Diane Von Furstenberg or Anna Sui). For us mortals, finding a good print that avoids any couch-like comparisons is a bit harder.

Every Spring stores and glossies always push the floral print, which I happen to love year round. If you are in the market for a bit of print yourself, I have found a few really pretty and striking options for you. Yes, the same rules still apply here: minimize the rest of your look unless you are a true accessories afficianado. (My sister knows how to choose jewelry for even the busiest of print dresses. You go with your bad self!) I, on the other hand, tend to play it a bit safe and let the print do the talkin'. How about these three fetching options?

You'd look great in this easy to wear kimono style print dress by Nicole Miller. Find it here.

This top is a no-brainer. The satin belt is ultra-flattering and will look great with black leggings or tailored jeans. Go ahead. Order one.

For a very "now" Spring print recipe: try this Xhilaration for Target skirt with a tank and longer black blazer or, pair with an old jean jacket with a long necklace. No one will guess it was under $17.00! Look at you.

A well-chosen and beautiful print will give your entire outfit (and day) some pop. Get busy!
