Prints Charming

prints. prints. prints.

Although the temperature is hovering below freezing and snow continues to line the streets, spring is in the air. No there is no sign of blossoming flowers or blue skies. Spring has revealed itself in the form of sleeveless tops, jewel tone fabrics, and cropped pants throughout retail stores. In addition to these, a big spring trend currently is prints. Paris Fashion Week showcased Stella McCartney and her beautiful bright and bold patterns ranging from dresses, blazers, tops and trousers. Models were draped in floral inspired prints in vibrant hues as well as neutral yet high-impact designs.

If your pockets are not deep enough to purchase ready-to-wear clothing off the runways, there are several wallet friendly retailers that are following the print trend. One in particular that incorporates high fashion at affordable prices is Aritzia. The designers Talua and Wilfred in particular utilize floral patterns in their collections, spanning from casual wear to nighttime looks. The designs have a consistent theme of striking patters on playful silhouettes. And with prices starting at $70, these patterns are not only appealing to the eye, but are also also pleasing to the pocket.
