We're pretty sure it would be the end of fashion as we know it if the print were, in fact, dead. That's kind of like saying that pants are dead or shoes are dead. Last time we checked, no one was trying to make this world a monochromatic one. We kid, sort of. So another trend gallery has been made (we love how fast it is for online publications to whip these us when the glossies take an entire month and by then you're like, "Uh, yeah. I'm completely aware that harem pants are in style") declaring the print officially not dead. It's a revelation people. Listen, there are ways to make this more specific (and thereby meaningful). First we could articulate which prints are still alive and which are 'dead'. We could also articulate just where the prints are living, because this is not the same season after season.
That said, one thing we've noticed, after organizing our wardrobe this weekend (It was a true nightmare--arms were nearly lost.), is that on the side of the closet where delicate tanks, skirts, and frocks live; the prints are in abundance. One the other side of the closet, where the jeans are stacked and long sleeve blouses hung, the palette is almost entirely a solid one. Say what? How did this happen? We're hoping we're not the only one's who tend to veer towards the solids when it comes to winter separates and get kind of print-astic when it's warm outside. Below, some print options for those of us who subconsciously print on a bias (hehe).
