Painterly Effects
Spring always brings a few new trends and first on my radar this year are the painterly looks that were seen on the runways of numerous design houses from Chanel to Celine. Finally in stores, they are a great way to infuse some color into a winter wardrobe; they feel new and fresh and perhaps a more modern choice over always available spring florals. At first glance they might seem a little daunting if you're not used to bold, graphic elements. But these prints have a wide variety of techniques to choose from and so the more restrained consumer might choose a print with more background and fewer colors, while the bolder of us would be drawn to a wild graffiti print. I like the versatility and that they can be worn easily to work when paired with some classic pieces. They can then do double duty on the weekend with your usual casual attire.
