Graphic Prints are a Huge Trend for Spring and Summer — How to Style It

I suggest that you make sure some (or most) of the colors are your flattering colors and the scale of the print is right for your features.  We don’t want to overwhelm you with a graphic print.

That said, there are so many ways to style and wear a graphic print:

1. Wear one bold graphic print on top and wear a smaller scaled version of the same print on the bottom. Consider prints in checkerboards, polka dots, or stripes.

2. A big bold floral print in a mid-calf full skirt goes well with the simplest of tops, such as a tank or T-shirt. However, I like to balance the visual weight of the skirt with a fun, bold necklace on top.

3. Loose harem pants in polka dots are unexpected and fun. Pair with a simple oxford white blouse.

4. Don’t be afraid to mix prints. If the colors are harmonious, this works and you won’t have to worry about graphic overload. I have a cream-colored skirt with navy stripes that I pair with a navy and cream all-over textured, fine printed jacket and it looks terrific. For another option, try a long plaid tunic with a floral legging in similar hues.

5. Prints can be mighty in small doses. A photomontage print top gets plenty of attention when paired with your favorite solid-colored pantsuit.
