I scoped this Tetris dress on Fashion Week Daily's Chic Report and I thought, "My, everyone's wearing prints these days, even when they're inspired by early 90's video games!"
And it's true, poppy prints are just the right way to dress up an outfit, without having to fawn over accessories or the right shoes. And it's true, while futuristic space age sheen in definitely in style for Fall, so is dark floral, neon patterns and brushstroke designs.
Recently, I spied The Coveted's head style blogger Jennina Tamm Jacob interviewed for the blog of our favorite designer mix and match clothing store Shopbop and obsessed over her bluish water scenic patterned shift dress. But it wasn't until I saw massive prints on the likes celeb fashionistas from Charlize Theron to Jessica Alba that I thought, "Wow, this really IS in trend." And I wasn't wrong.
But I digress. I got caught up in prints, but forgot to mention the bruises. And we're not talking black eyes here. Black and blues are the poppy prints of choice for fall and more than one celeb wore them in the same week. Check it out.
The actress is a magnificent blue print wonder in a bold Balanciaga patterned dress, polka dot tights and black Manolo Blahnik peeptoes.
She's black and blue, but this actress looks far from bruised. A beautiful printed strapless Oscar de La Renta frock with patterned blue florals and ankle strap Jimmy Choos.
Another blue floral frock and this one just as exquisite. And we quite like the effect of the punchy print and the romantic ribbon-laced sandals.
