One of the best things about summer is all the vibrant colors we get to play with when we get dressed. This summer is an especially joyful one as we all celebrate the re-entry into life outside. So don’t hold back! Go big, go bold, go beautiful! Here are 5 Fun Ways to Wear Summer Prints.
Juicy Fruit! Fruit Printed Clothes
Who said fashion can’t be juicy and sweet? A fun way to pay homage to color and the mood of the season is to wear fruits. We naturally gravitate to hydrating, tropical and fruity ways to cool down in the summer, when temperatures start rising. Incorporate fruit printed tops, leggings, dresses, crop tops and more into your closet. Wearing watermelons, kiwis, citrus fruits like lemons and oranges, pineapples and bananas is a super-cute trend for the unapologetically vibrant souls who want to exude the same joyful energy that summer gives us all.
An unexpected color in fashion this year is brown and every shade of it. Whether it’s a light caramel shade, a reddish paprika or a dark chocolate, it’s very on trend right at this moment. Traditionally, brown is a hue reserved for the later months of the year, for Fall and Winter, but it is currently trending as a summer color. If you find yourself attracted to this hue, try choosing some prints that have an overall sweep of brown. You can wear prints that feature matching brown on brown, a mixture of adjacent shades, or you can choose prints that incorporate a pops of other colors, like dashes of neon yellows, greens, oranges or pinks.
If you’re really into prints and love taking risks unapologetically, this idea is for you. Try mixing up your printed pieces in the same outfit. We’ve seen plenty of matching prints already and while this is still a hot trend, the next level is mixing. Coordinating a striped top with a leopard print legging; or a lava print skirt with a snakeskin crop top; or a palm frond printed dress and a floral-printed shawl may all seem like it breaks the rules, but that’s precisely why it works so well in fashion right now. The overarching feeling in fashion at the moment is all about expressing how you feel and who you are in whatever way you want - throwing away the rules and just being you! Be a trendsetter and try out the print mix look; you’ll be glad you did.
Prints and a Shacket
Like balance? Here’s a trend you’ll like. If you’re into contrast and balance, then pick your print and rock it head to toe. It can be a printed top + biker short, a printed top + skirt or a fully printed maxi dress - whatever you’re feeling. Then throw on a denim jacket, a solid colored shacket or an oversized linen shirt and tie the two sides together around your waist. Throw on a cross-body, some high socks and sneakers + shades and you have yourself a whole influencer-chic look for the summer.
Coordinated Printed Sets
Coordinated sets are HOT this year. The complete, head-to-toe print is a commitment to a look and there’s just no turning back. Owning your look means choosing a print you are wild about and wearing it all over. Whether it’s a printed sports-bra + printed biker short, a bold printed sundress, a printed crop top + a matching printed maxi skirt or any other combination, rock your prints throughout. Whether it’s an abstract lava print, an animal print, a tropical print or something else, just choose it then commit!
