Prints Primer: How To Wear A Little Or A Lot

There's nothing that can replace a crisp, white top or sleek, black blazer, but we like to think of prints as the spice of life style. They're interesting, they're fun, and this season, they're everywhere. Of course, rocking a stripe or a flowery pattern to perfection is easier said than done...until now. We've pieced together the ultimate guide to wearing prints for those testing the water as well as those not afraid to go wild.
Beginning with three perfectly on-trend graphics of the season — plaid, wide stripes, and flomo (a floral/camo hybrid, of course) — we're walking you though the must-try looks for every conform zone. Whether you're a minimalist who's taking it slow or the color-crazed eccentric who can never have enough, consider this your prints playbook that'll flavor things up no matter what your taste.
