How To Wear Head-To-Toe Prints For Day, Work Or Night

Head-to-toe patterns can make one of the biggest style statements this season, and you can work this trend into any occasion from weekend daywear, to workweek office attire, to night-out evening looks. Prints are no longer just for accents on blouses, skirts or scarves, as we’ve been seeing them top-to-toe on stars from Gwyneth Paltrow to Rihanna for a few seasons. The look isn’t getting tired, as long as you update it with the right unique touches. With inspiration from the runway, here’s exactly how to work this rich trend into your fashion calendar for spring and summer 2013.

DAY: Inspired By Charlotte Ronson

For a casual day of summer fun or just a relaxing weekend activity, take hints from this effortless Charlotte Ronson look complete with graphic-print tee and matching slouchy trouser shorts. We love the sporty vibe of this outfit and can’t wait to recreate it for a sunny Saturday stroll or beach day. By pairing a printed short with a t-shirt baring a graphic of the same nature, you’ll keep this look fun, youthful and pared down for daytime.

OFFICE: Inspired By Mary Katrantzou

Disclaimer — inspired by means we don’t promote wearing this look as seen on the runway sans shirt. We’re just gaga over the tailored printed suit this season for the office, and you can take this runway look, add a simple pastel blouse or shell under it, and opt for closed-toe pumps if your office requires a bit more formality. The best part? These pieces can be worn on their own with fun separates like denim shorts or a cropped tank for playtime after work.

NIGHT: Inspired By Kenzo

Finally, for those warm evenings out for cocktails or patio parties, this print look has mojito-in-hand written all over. We love the combination of glam, sophisticated and super sexy with the corset detailed cut-out top. With skin up top, there’s no need for a mini-skirt with this look. Keep heels and accessories shimmering and unique, and get ready for the night of your life in this bold look.
