If there’s one on-trend layering piece you need to transition into spring, it’s the print coat. What an effortless way to freshen up last year’s wardrobe. Simply toss on one of these beautiful and expressive works of art.
The Long and the Short of It
A print coat in any length will do, from cropped to maxi and everything in between. Throw a maxi coat over your mini for contrasting proportions. A knee-length coat over the same length dress is a ladies-that-lunch must-have. A cropped jacket over a long, voluminous skirt makes it office appropriate.
Prints, Prints and More Prints!
Spring/Summer 2015’s vivid prints are as varied as the personalities who wear them. Allover florals add a vintage feel, while oversized mod prints have a 60s vibe that screams peace and love. What colors are hot for your new print coat? We say, you can’t go wrong and the more, the merrier!
