Summer Prints: 5 Fresh Ways to Wear Them Well

From gingham to polka dots to florals galore, there is nothing like summer to try out some new prints and experiment with your perennial favorites in new ways as well.

Here are 5 fresh perspectives on how to wear new (and classic!) summer prints well. Enjoy!

#1 Make a Statement
Bold colors and dramatic silhouettes aren’t the only way to make a statement this summer. Colorful gingham, checkerboard prints in a wide array of colors outside their signature black and white squares, punchy florals, super bright stripes and even rainbows are all having a moment.

 

 

#2 Mix and Match Them
We love outfits that mix prints in just the right way. To do it with ease, start with prints with a unifying color. Repeating colors in this way can help bring instant summer harmony to your prints and outfits.

 

 

#3 Get Trendy
Take conservative prints to new heights by wearing them on a jumpsuit or romper and/or pairing them with edgier, more fashion-forward accent pieces such as square-toe sandals, structured bags and bold jewelry.

 

 

#4 Brand Yourself
There are many designers known for their eclectic summer prints. Lily Pulitzer, Tommy Bahama and Tory Burch to name a few. Connect to a brand you love and use it to enhance your style in a way that is uniquely you!

 

 

#5 Accessorize!
If you like a seasonal print but don’t want to commit to it long term, add a shoe, bag, belt, scarf or jewelry to give your wardrobe an easy (and often affordable!) boost.

 

 

Last word: Summer style should be anything but boring! Adding some fresh prints to your base neutrals is a way to expand on your summer style while maximining what is already in your closet.

Unless you want it to, your style doesn’t have to go on vacation this summer.
