SAN ANTONIO - This week’s “STYLE IN SECONDS,” sponsored by The shops at La Cantera
is all about prints! Prints are definitely on trend right now. They’re everywhere and they’re bigger and bolder than ever!
On the runways, we saw lots of prints on prints. If you want to try head to toe prints, I suggest trying all one print… think monochromatic, but with prints.
For the style novice, it’s probably easiest to start with one printed piece.
For example, you can try a printed blouse like the one on our model from Free People.
I love the Peter Pan collar on this top. It gives the look a 60’s spin.
Keep in mind when wearing prints, though, they draw attention… so if you are busty or thicker in the middle, you should probably avoid prints on your upper body. You can opt for a hip pair of printed trousers or skinny jeans instead. The uber trendy, printed pants work really well on women with the inverted triangle body type. These are the ladies that are busty on top, and super slim on the bottom.
Back to our pictured look, if you don’t do sleeveless tops … you can always throw a cardigan or jacket over the blouse. You can also find a printed option with sleeves instead.
Okay, so I paired the blouse with these solid, mustard colored pair of skinny jeans
. Again I would pick a solid to offset the print.
On her feet, some fabulous, black wedge sandals
. These add height and polish.
This look is fresh and fun, but also sophisticated and grown up…so women of all ages can wear this.
If you liked the outfit, you can find it at Free People at The Shops of La Cantera.
