Styling Tip: Wear Bright Floral Prints

One-Minute Makeover: Punch It Up With Bold Prints

What better way to keep your outfits fresh than a quick peek to the back of your closet? No shopping spree necessary. Chances are, you've been harboring some hidden wardrobe treasures, just begging to be added to your Spring '12 lineup. To kick-start the reinvention process, we've called upon our savvy community and expert fashion editors to breathe new life into the stylish wares we already own. This one-minute makeover is quick, budget-friendly, and packs a bold punch: boast your brightest prints.

  • Rule of thumb this Spring? The bolder, the better. After seeing wildly fun versions on the runways of Erdem, Prabal Gurung, Peter Som, and Jason Wu, we know that a great graphic print is versatile. Style a colorful floral blouse paired with a slick leather skirt for a more evening feel or go daytime polish in cropped kaleidoscope-hued pants with a casual button-up.
  • Because these prints are louder than most, feel free to play around with the pattern dynamic. Translation: mix-and-match. Try florals with stripes, bright graphics with polka dots, or all of the above — we think the vibrancy effect gives ample opportunity for experimentation in the more off-the-cuff style combination department.
  • For the girlie girl fashionista, pair Peter Pan-collared blouses, lace texture, and sweet accessories for a feminine juxtaposition. For the tougher style setter, try a leather moto-inspired jacket, a leopard-print skinny belt, and retro Converse for an edgier approach.
