We all want to stretch our dollar, and clothing is no exception. Those spring prints that you couldn’t leave the fabric store without snatching are some of the same ones that will be trendy from this spring to the next. Keep reading to find out which prints to start wearing now, and you’ll take away some styling tips, too.
Checks are a staple print. For simplicity’s sake, it’s best to group checked varieties with gingham, tartan, houndstooth, and plaid. While plaid is traditionally known for its place in winter wardrobes, it’s become increasingly popular all year round, and this spring/summer will be no exception. Bring your fall wardrobe full circle through spring by pairing the same preppy plaid skirt with boots and layers in the fall and a tank top and sneakers in spring.
Argle gives me 90’s prep school chic vibes, but it’s more than that. Argyle is here to show up and show out for seasons to come. Sweater vests, cardigans, and more work in perfect harmony with this print for fall. Take argyle into warm weather by opting for short-sleeved varieties with thinner fabric or wear a sweater vest alone paired with a mini skirt for the ultimate preppy look or not (you choose).
The jungle print is one bursting with greenery and wildlife so fierce you’ll think the Amazon is your runway. Jungle prints are bold and statement-worthy no matter how it’s worn. Fashion a tiger-striped faux fur jacket for fall and a zebra minidress for spring, all while looking exotic in only the best way.
Floral prints take on many personalities, and I’m here for all of them. This fall, florals are looking quite vintage. Try a matching blazer set in a floral variety for fall and use the same blazer print to create bermuda shorts to complete the set for spring. What if you love florals but want to make them a bit more muted? Take the same blazer idea but in a solid color to cover a floral dress, and you’re ready to hit the town, or you can at least get ready as if you were.
Most of my tie-dye is in the form of comfy loungewear sets, but I’m excited to announce that it’s still going to be tie-dye throughout the fall and into the spring. For fall, consider pairing pastels like tie-dye t-shirts with mini dresses or shackets. When the heat starts to set in again, you can drop the layers and get back to the biker short/shirt combos or wear that same tie-dye shirt as a dress paired with barely there heels and jewelry to effortlessly take your look from fall to spring.
Prints for fall are some of my favorites— They’re even better when you get double the use out of them. Enjoy some of fall and spring’s best prints and take them from one season to the next with some simple styling and excellent results!
