This spring, printed fabrics are all the rage. They add plenty of personality to your look. You’ll love the wide variety of prints available. Suitable for any style, prints can be found in a wide array of patterns from bold and chunky to light and subtle. Here’s a look at a few of our favorite trends this spring that you’ll want to check out.
Florals celebrate the spring season. Bold, big flowers on a dark or light background certainly say that you’re here for those showers and flowers. We love knit dresses with a bold floral print. On cooler days, wear tights or leggings underneath and cute booties to keep your gams warm. For breezy spring days, choose a linen shirt that features subtle paisley flowers for an effortless vibe that’s ready for some sunshine. Mini floral patterns are also in vogue right now. You’ll love the options for lightweight sweaters with a light floral print. Or go for an asymmetrical look with a graphic flower tee that features your favorite blooms.
Global prints such as mandalas, inspiring patterns from the American Southwest, and more make for beautifully stunning prints to wear this spring. Grab a few comfy hoodies that feature unique designs from around the globe. Or go for a women’s blouse that showcases stunning, globally inspired prints such as an ikat pattern. Pair it with your favorite skinny jeans and flats for an effortless look that’s ready for the open road. These bohemian-flavored prints are still in style and create an aura of relaxation and a connection with nature. Choose a skirt or slacks that utilize neutral or complimentary colors. The result is an eye-catching outfit that truly turns heads.
Today’s fun animal print and camo designs are more subtle than the originals. Instead of bold, fierce prints, the color pallets are more subtle, which creates intrigue. So, pick up a few of your favorite women’s scoop neck tops with flirty prints. Subtle animal print can be dressed up, while camo gives a casual yet fashion-forward vibe. Pair any patterned top or bottom with a solid color. This not only provides balance in your outfit but also gives the eye a break. Choose a color that you can find in your patterned clothing. Alternatively, you can opt to use a neutral color — such as white, black, or tan — to go with your patterned piece.
For a more urban feel, use geometric prints and patterns. The great part about a geometric pattern is that it can be repeatable, such as tunic tops with a horizontal print, or as asymmetrical and free as it gets. Big, chunky geometrics create a bold statement, while more subdued colors and patterns are more subtle. Either way, aim for clean lines and sharp shapes to make the most of your geometric patterns. Bold designs work well with women’s tops, while more classic looks, like houndstooth, can be great for accents like scarves, handbags, and more.
Right now, vintage is back! Scenes, designs, and prints from the '80s and '90s are the hot new style. Really love an artist from the '80s? Don’t be shy — rock a women’s petite T-shirt that reflects your musical tastes. Or choose a punchy graphic of one of your favorite TV shows. The sky is the limit here. Patterns and prints from the fashions of yesterday lend a funky-fresh look to today’s hottest trends. Don’t be afraid to let your freak flag fly and celebrate your unique identity or the nostalgic crush you kept hidden until now.
Today's world is wild and unpredictable. Amazing ways to get involved in helping one another during these uncertain times abound. One great way to get involved is to choose a fun print that you love and rock it to support a cause you care about. From helping out hungry families to supporting your favorite local graphic artist, there is an endless amount of prints to choose from. If you follow your favorite artists, shops, or causes on social media, you can often find limited edition printed tank tops and other items. Search for small businesses and boutique outlets to show your support for your neighborhood shops.
No matter what your personality is, you can always find great pieces featuring beautiful prints and patterns to add to your wardrobe. From your favorite florals to nostalgic designs of yesterday, there’s something for everyone. Today’s style is all about showing off the unique sides of your life. So, don’t be shy, show off the inner you! You’ll find your clothing makes you feel happier, healthier, and more like your authentic self.
