Prints vs. solids? We are talking about adding interest to your Spring/Summer looks with prints. This dress is actually a throw back from two years ago, this is my 50th birthday frock. Black was my first choice but black can be boring for a milestone occasion so I opted for this print maxi in my favorite silhouette, off the shoulder, take a peek.
Prints can be tricky to rock, I mean who wants to look like drapes or a bedspread? But you can rock prints, here are a few tips:
How To Rock Prints
1. Prints in a lighter color are an easy way to ease into this trend
2. A geometric print makes the body look more lean by sending the eye in one direction
3. Details like a cape or an overlay with a print cover up a tummy and slims the thigh area
This dress is perfect for showing off the curves, while hiding those trouble areas. And off the shoulder styles are a must have for when you want a sexy but subtle look. Find a similar option here and similar options for the sandals here. For the first time that I recall, I did not add any accessories to this OOTD, just let the dress do the work. This dress will be in heavy rotation!
Do you wear more prints or more solids?
