Wear-It: Bold Prints

As Glamour so aptly put it, "There are prints, and then there are PRINTS." This Spring loud, head-to-to prints could be seen in full motion on the runways. Floral, native, geometric, and kitsch (Were those parrots?) printed garments by Cynthia Rowley, Derrek Lam, and Jason Altuzarra (to name a few) left us both intrigued and bewildered as we dared to ask the question everyone else was thinking: HOW COULD I WEAR THAT?

Fortunately for us, one of our favorite style blogs has been quick to the draw, breezily showing that even the loudest of prints need not be feared. Here's the photo evidence from Sydne Styles that this trend is as wearable as it is fun:

Wear-It: Coral

It's no secret that coral is one of this Spring's "it" colors, and we're more than happy to embrace the trend. After all, what's not to love about the friendly orange-red, statement making pop that this shade lends?

Believe it or not, coral is a very wearable color. The red undertone means it's flattering on nearly all skin tones, so there's no reason not to work this new staple color into your wardrobe! Below are a few tips for pulling it off in every way, from lipstick to pantyhose...

Wear-It: Coral Lipstick

  • The rules for wearing coral lipstick are actually quite easy: If you have a lighter skin tone, opt for a shade with more pink than red. If your skin tone is darker, embrace more of a deep reddish orange.
Wear-It: Coral Clothing 
 Whitney Port wears a coral blazer with tortoise shell sunglasses and summer neutrals.
  • Work coral into your wardrobe by starting with a key layering piece, such as a blazer. Throw it over cool basics like a white tee and your favorite denim to naturally transition into the piece. Nude shoes are great with this look as well.
  • If you're feeling color happy, try coral denim paired with a cool mint green blouse and/or shoes.
Wear-It: Coral Accessories
 Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears DKNY "Camilla Coral" tights with her LBD. 
  • A coral handbag or jewelry is an easy, non-committal way to try the color on for size. Of course, these same pieces can be used to add big impact as well. Feeling adventurous? Opt for coral stockings and turn heads this Easter! 

What ways do you plan on wearing coral?
