Intro to Prints: Inspired by Union Market DC

Intro to Prints: Featuring a midi length a-line skirt with a busy primary color print, a black cropped t-shirt and buckled strappy black stilettos

It’s official: the muted monochromatic look is dead. It’s not surprising considering the biggest Spring/Summer ’17 runway trends all showcased bolder and brighter looks. The days are getting longer, warmer, and full of a lot more fun. Suddenly, all those neutrals in your closet are looking kind of depressing. With Memorial Day weekend officially kicking off barbecue season, it’s the perfect time to dive into brighter and busier palettes! To that end, prints are your new best friend. read more
