Summer is undoubtedly the season of lace-up sandals and bikinis, trips to the beach and rooftop cocktails. Summer is also the season of prints. The dark, moody color palette of winter is replaced by vivid patterns like floral, polka dot, plaid and paisley. No matter your favorite, summer is the perfect time to embrace a multitude of different prints.
If you normally stick with a one-color wardrobe (read: Black), the thought of wearing any sort of pattern can be intimidating and a little confusing. That isn’t an excuse to skip the look. There are lots of ways to work patterns into your wardrobe. Our advice? Start off with one printed piece then gradually build up from there. In no time you’ll be mixing and matching prints and colors like the best Gucci girl. Click through the gallery above for inspiration on how to master wearing prints this summer.
