Inspiration- Prints

 

Prints, after many years, are coming back.  Thank goodness.   I have always loved prints.  I used to have this amazing polkadot dress in 2007 that was not really fashionable but I wore it anyway.  It was navy blue with white dots.  It was cut into sections going down about every six inches the dots would change sizes.  I still miss that dress 5 years later.  As I sit in a coffee shop right now four people are wearing prints, an abstract watercolor inspired print, a pasily, a plad and I have on a cartoon skirt.

I can’t stand the slogan teeshirt, so many of them are something along the lines of look how smart I am, or look how good looking I am, which will only be worn by the dumbest and least attractive people.  Then again if an increadibly good looking genius wore them that would probably be worse.  But so long slogan tees and hello prints.   Not every print works on every person.  Andy Reid, when he was the coach of the Eagles, used to wear this shirt that was vertical strips and that was never a good look.  But that could be more of an Andy Reid problem then a stripes problem.  There are so many new and inventive ways to use prints that solids just aren’t fun enough to use.
