Trend We Loved: The Printed Dress. Find Out How To Pick The Perfect One For You & Style It!

First, Pick Out a Printed Dress. So Cute!

If you're into graphic prints:

Love having all eyes on you at work? Go with these bold but polished dresses--then wear them out at night!

If you're into daring prints:

Trippy, right? Part artsy, part sci-fi, these vivid designs are great for formal nights out, like weddings. And if you upstage the bride? Oh, well!

If You're into romantic prints:

These darling styles can be worn sweetly with sandals, or ironically--bring on the biker jacket and boots!


Your Rules for Wearing Prints - Easy Tips For A Tricky Trend

1. DO wear big prints where your body is smaller, and smaller prints where you're bigger, to even out your curves.

2. DO mix your prints but not your type of print. Stick with one of the categories above, and make sure your pieces have at least one color in common.

3. DO pick solid accessories so you don't have to take an Excedrin just to look in the mirror.


Add a Solid Accessory

A structured purse


A box-heeled platform sandal

  *On SALE - $425 for $99!!


A strappy tote


A two-tone pump


A chic envelope clutch
