Spring Trends: Pretty Prints

Pretty prints in goregous, bold colors were on nearly every runway during New York's Fashion Week last September. Small florals, large Ikat patterns, and electric abstract prints made an impact in their every iteration from dresses to shorts.

Why We Adore It: Colorful prints will make you a stand-out at any Spring event, and since the bright pattern is the focus of the look, accessories can stay minimal, making these pieces awesome travel companions. They also make amazing versatile layering pieces early in the season, not to  mention the cool colors do wonders for your skin tone.

How To Wear It: When temps are still low but Spring is evident, wear floral or printed dresses and skirts with your favorite blazer or cardi, paired with tights and booties or pumps. The look will be on-trend but will keep you comfortable until it's warm enough to drop the layering pieces. Later in the season, rock the same colorful frocks and separates with simple nude or metallic accessories and a good tan.

Where To Get It: The abstract print shown pictured above came from Stanley Korshak's fashionable racks. Check out the video to see JCPenney's offering of adorable floral dress.
