It’s been an exciting time on the runways and catwalks of the world. Designers really had a lot of fun creating some wonderful looks for fashionistas to mull over. Lots of stripes and neons were seen elegantly gliding down escalators and flouncing up and down runways – but joy of joys, graphic prints made a bold appearance too. This fun, sassy look is so cool, it’s hot! Worn with flat summer sandals to finish it all off makes for the perfect spring look.
There are some great graphic print outfits around from silk dresses to black and white bold prints that make a girl stand out in the crowd. When it comes to accessories, the fun really begins. A graphic print silk dress can look so heavenly sexy when worn with glitzy, studded summer sandals with slight heels or wedges. The perfect complement is to add some light and airy jewellery to your outfit – something with a little vibrant colour. Graphic print silk dresses are the perfect choice of outfits to wear for a cocktail party or for a lunch date.
Things to Remember
When wearing anything with a graphic print, it’s important to keep everything in proportion to your frame as well as the size of the garment. Bigger girls can get away with wearing bigger prints, but if you have a small frame, stick to smaller prints so you achieve a cool look.
When it comes to make-up – keep it simple and the same goes for hairstyles – too many statements can ruin an overall look – go for simple summer shoes too!
Graphic Black & White
When it comes to black and white graphic prints, there’s something very clean and simple looking about them. If well chosen, logical stripes and grids work really well together and can be extremely figure flattering. It’s such a modern look that’s both assertive yet cool at the same time. It’s a look that’s never over the top in your face either and it looks great with flat summer sandals – think gladiator sandals!
When it comes to footwear – think black sandals or maybe consider black and white ones. As for make-up all you have to do is highlight brows and your bone structure and that’s enough to set off your look.
Look to the Designers
One designer who said it all in his Op Art collection was Marc Jacobs – for inspiration, it does not get much better than this but then so were the pieces by Moschino and Michael Kors with their geometric prints and graphic black and white prints.
Graphic Prints: Easy to Incorporate in a Wardrobe
You may think that graphic prints would be hard to incorporate into your wardrobe and look – but you’d be wrong because surprisingly, they are not! The prints on the runways showed that many have loads of colours in them which makes it easier to coordinate an outfit. Take the predominant colour and run with it! Then to finish the look choose your footwear with care – think stylish summer sandals.
