While spring is not officially here, we have been having quite a few warm spring-like days. When I wake up with the sun shining brightly, I can't help but bust out the bright prints and breezy fabrics. I love to give my wardrobe a little refresh at the start of the season, so I usually head to Marshalls to get some spring essentials. For spring especially, I gravitate towards bright prints; whether it's geometrics patterns, florals, or soft water colors- I'm sold! The nights tend to stay cool, so I want something that can transition easily into summer, but can still be worn in the cooler months. I have always been a fan of anything and everything printed. Jeans, blazers, dresses, kimonos- you name it! Prints are a great transition items for when it's time to shed those winter layers And don't be intimidated by bold prints- there's a print for everyone! Sometimes these can be outside of our comfort zone, but I'm sharing a few ways to try this trend for spring.
Tips for wearing spring prints
Printed Dresses - Most dresses come in pretty prints, so look for unique fits and cuts. The dress I'm wearing has a great off the shoulder top (one of my favorite solliuettes) paired with a cinched waist and flirty length. This dress is another clearance find- it was only $5.00. I was drawn to the pastel paisley print(perfect for spring)...and who am I kidding- I loved that it was only $5.00. One great thing about Marshalls is that I can buy trendy dresses, like the one above, but also some of my favorite investment ones! People are always surprised when they find out Marshalls carries amazing designer brands like Free People, Parker, and Joie. When wearing printed dresses the possibilities are truly endless; you can mix prints with a fun scarf or patterned sweater, add a simple blazer, or dress up your look with some chic lace-up heels. And you can score all those items in one stop at Marshalls.
Printed Pants - I know these can be super intimidating, but I believe theres a style for everyone! If you're new to this trend, try a neutral print or a light polka dot. Both of these are great ways to try out the trend without wearing something too bold. My favorite is printed denim, because they still have the denim wash we all love, but with subtle accent. I like to keep the rest of my outfit very simple when I wear printed pants, like the killer pair I'm wearing above! The tuxedo strip was essential for breaking up the scarf print, while adding a little length to my leg. They look like a trouser, but they're actually white jeans with a print on top. These Joe's jeans fit like a glove and were only $39.99. Score! There are a ton of great options at Marshalls for all shapes and sizes. And who knows, you may be reaching for those bright floral pants soon!
Spring Printed Blouses - If printed pants, dresses or rompers are still too bold, a blouse is the perfect way to refresh your look and add some color and dimension to your closet. The best part is that you can pair it with your favorite jeans and flats, or dress it up with a textured lace skirt and sandals. Just like dresses, printed blouses are incredibly versatile! Try to step outside of your comfort zone with a bold blouse or by mixing prints.
Adding prints is a great way to bring some color to your wardrobe and get ready for the warmer months to come. All the outfits I posted feature great spring prints and together cost under $50. Insane! I hope you got a little inspiration for spring and are ready to head over to your local Marshalls to score some of the items I shared about. They get new items every single day, so you never know what you will find when you go. It's like a treasure hunt!
