I want to give a special shout out to Target for teaming up with the amazing design house Marimekko!! Thank you so much for all this Spring goodness! Hats, bathing suits, beach wraps, kids clothes, on and on!! I mean how adorable are these prints, and you can even get away with mixing and matching!! I totally got a little carried away here, and typically shy away from prints but in this case, it just all seems to work so well! Which prints work and which prints don’t? How can you pull off the perfect print? I’ve put together 5 easy tips to keep in mind when shopping prints:

Keep everything else simple

Let the print be the statement. How easy is that? Just sit back and let the print do all the work for you! If you have too much going on, the impact will be lost and everything will seem too cluttered. Try simple, clean accessories and color accents. 

Go for bold

Choose a strong bold pattern. Go big or go home. Right now it’s about having fun and making a statement, small prints aren’t going to have the drama or the fun flair that makes for an epic look

Color is key

Make sure that you first choose a color that is flattering, then a pretty print. If the color doesn’t work for your complexion there is not a whole lot a cool print can do to rescue you!

Keep it in the family

If you have a top/blouse/jacket in a print try to find a skirt/pant/ short in the same print motif. This will make you look pulled together and committing to the look makes more of a statement.

Have fun

This is always my favorite style tip. Wear something that makes you smile, something that makes you feel good. If you are happy, you will be beautiful. 

Rush over to Target for unbelievable prices on this designer collaboration. The prints are fool proof, and look very designer, I’ve been wearing my outfit on constant repeat and have had so many compliments! If there were more looks I think I would have bought everything in my size and for my girls (yes I’ve hooked them up too!!)- Sizes run a little big. Happy shopping!
