Prints are all the rage this season, as demonstrated by several of this spring’s RTW collections. This season’s hottest prints are an abstract/floral/geometric fusion, which encompasses a little bit of everything. And lucky for us, this means that retailers are putting out a variety of prints, so you’re sure to find the perfect print for you.

Here are three outfits (all under $100 total) that will show you how to rock prints all spring and summer long!
Outfit 1: Girly With a Hint of Pizazz
This outfit is for those of you who like to incorporate a single bright, spring element into an otherwise-neutral ensemble. The coral color is definitely a hit this spring, while the black motif keeps this outfit relatively “neutral.” The print, in my opinion, isn’t too loud, and is a great choice if you want to try the trend without going over-the-top.
Outfit 2: (500) Days of Summer
This outfit is an indie movie-meets-summer day outfit. I played on a floral print and offset it with simple, earth-toned accessories. This look is great if you are the type that likes to retain a feminine look year round, but still love a little practicality in an ensemble.
Outfit 3: Print n’ Edge is The New Rock n’ Roll
This outfit has a little bit more edge to it than the others – a patterned top mixes well with simple black shorts, suede sandals, an Alexander Wang-esque drawstring bag, and rocker-chic stud earrings. If you are feeling more edgy, try adding black nail polish or a studded bracelet. I love the idea of juxtaposing prints with a rocker-esque look. Let me know if you agree!
