Fresh Prints of Summer

Punctuate your seasonal ensembles with prints — polka dots, plaids, florals and geometrics.



Miyoshi wears a graphic-print dress ($30) by Fashion Love from A Woman’s Touch Fashions.

 

As the dog days of summer set in and unrelenting heat leaves you panting for sartorial relief, punctuate your ensembles with an exclamation point. Whether light or bright, colors can struggle to stand out against the season’s visual landscape dominated by green and gray. To boost the impact, add a print piece. From polka dots, plaids and paisleys to animal skins, florals and geometrics, prints charming and debonair are easy to find in pants, tops, dresses and accessories. Prints are fun and functional, sometimes slimming and trimming the body and always energizing outfits with an instant injection of drama.
