Pull Off Prints & Textures In One Look
We’re marching towards a charmed obsession for striking prints, unruly patterns, and a frenzy of colors. This season, relish in the prismatic trance as these look-at-me prints and fabrications are back in the fashion map.
No Holds Barred
Striped collared top, striped halter top, rings, Forever 21; striped pants, Sfera; brown suede heels, Promod
Trend: Statement Stripes
This season, uni-directional stripes just aren’t going to cut it. This figure-friendly print has tastefully learned the reckless route and has never looked so fearless. Go for ungoverned lines in fancy widths and colors for that playful contrast—be it in pinstripes, sailor, school, or jail stripes—because whoever said clashing stripes couldn’t be as exciting?

Trend: 70s Florals
Flowers in Spring are a no-brainer, but when you see the runway fully mantled in these delicate blooms, you know this trend is a hit in a flash. Wear it lavishly and in scalable layers for that unforgiving femininity and charm. Lady bees could use a little flair in their life.
Spot The Dot
Black and white polka dot dress, Warehouse; white tulle top, Basic Movement; black bow top, black tulle dress, dangling earrings, and rings, Forever21; Black heels, Charles & Keith
Trend: Polka Dots
Unearth those New Year polka pieces, ladies. Dresses are now literally spotted with the classic dots worthy of an overuse. The most popular ones come in the ever-reliable black and white, but expect to see pops of colors, too, just within arms reach for the more comical wearer.

Flash a bit of character in these high-voltage metallic pieces that are sure to fizzle your way through an equally charged day. Sparkling details and shiny finishes are all the rage and make for a rather resolute disposition. Thanks to Saint Laurent, Dior, and Versace, all things gold and silver can now be shamelessly worn on days other than the holidays.
