Don't Be Shy: How to Pull Off Bold Prints For Spring '13

View in slideshow

Bold, punchy prints ruled the Spring 2013 collections, with designers like Mary Katrantzou, Peter Pilotto, and Proenza Schouler all sending gorgeous, eye-catching patterns down their runways. And while it's not the easiest trend to pull off, when done correctly, it's a look that will strike gold.

Ease into the trend by sticking to one key piece (like a bold printed blouse or knee-length dress) and keeping your accessories simple, like with nude or black heels. The trick is to keep all eyes on the print, so balancing it with a crisp, solid hue is the way to go. If you're feeling even more brave, then try mixing your patterns: a striped top tucked into floral skinnies looks fresh and fun, and as long as you keep everything in the same color family, you can't fail.
