trend report - bold prints

Get set to blossom this spring and summer with freshly picked florals and big, bold graphic prints. Design houses like Chloe have been brewing this trend for a year or so, and it has finally trickled down to the masses with retailers like Patrick Robinson for Target and Forever21 jumping on board. Mod and pretty, these prints are feminine without being over-the-top girly, and their bright, bold feel can liven up any basic design. Updated from printed and woven patterns last seen in the sixties and seventies, a graphic babydoll top or monochrome floral shift can add an element of vintage or a decidedly futuristic feel, depending on how its paired. Dress up with red lips and heels like Rachel or follow Sienna's lead with sandals and shades and rule the sidewalks with these cool and pretty patterns.
