It’s a well-documented fact the fashion crowd loves an exciting print. While we’ve seen our fair share of kitschy patterns and overly saccharine florals, the latest print on the rise feels worthy of a full-fledged exhibition at the MoMA— we’re talking bold photographic and painted graphics that look like they belong on canvas.
Lately, I haven’t been able to make it through my feed without spotting one, and insider-y brands like With Jean, Ottolinger and Elliss have jumped headfirst into the pool churning out tops and dresses adorned with striking large-scale prints.
When your mood is calling for an outfit that goes beyond the scope of sterile basics, a visually stunning print may just be the solution. If it seems intimidating to pull off IRL, take a deep breath—it’s way easier to incorporate into your day-to-day looks than it seems. Just pair them with simple accessories and you have a ready-made outfit that’s just the right amount of extra.
