Fashion is a fun and accessible way for people to express themselves. An outfit can communicate bold statements to people without having to say a single word. It is important to dress in ways that make you feel comfortable and confident no matter where you are or who’s watching. Whether you prefer black head-to-toe 365 days a year, or you can’t leave the house without the vintage jacket you found at the second hand shop 3 years ago — the choice is yours. People may say there are rules in fashion but here at Oz, we believe that confidence is everything.
Shopping for clothing with prints is a great way to showcase your personality and spice up the basic solids. You can complement different prints for extra flare or elevate a solid color outfit with a touch of detail. The possibilities are endless!
So, next time you go shopping, don’t overlook that polka dot blouse too fast. Make a statement and let that beautiful personality shine!
Here are a few of our favorite prints:
1.) Ombre Pattern
Ombre patterns has made a huge hit in fashion and not just in clothing but hair, as well! Ombre patterns create lovely gradients which is a great way to add multiple colors to your outfit without overdoing it. We especially love how the ombre pattern looks on A-line dresses. When the dress is flowing, the gradient creates movement in the color adding dimension to the look.
2.) Floral Print
Floral has and will always be a classic in fashion. Floral patterns, no matter the attire, flatters everybody making it a good choice when trying to add a pop of color or flare in an outfit. Floral dresses are great for any occasion, especially in the spring and summer time! You could either wear a fully floral printed dress or go for floral detailing for a more subtle pattern.
3.) Polka-Dot Prints
Polka dots are hands-down one of the most underrated prints in clothing! The beauty about polka dotted prints, especially in black and white, is that it is versatile and goes with every color. For example, if you are wearing a black and white polka dotted blouse, pairing it with a solid colored pant creates an elegant contrast.
4.) Striped Pattern
Who ever thought that Beetlejuice could be couture? We do! Striped patterns is another timeless look in fashion for both men and women. I mean, who doesn’t love a nicely tailored pinstripe suit? Vertical stripes can often create an elongated illusion making you look taller and slimmer.
5.) Geometric Grid Print
Geometric grid patterns add a sophisticated edge to any look. Grid prints in fashion made a huge comeback a few years ago and it seems like they’re here to stay. What we love most about this pattern is how geometric print adds dimension to a dress, giving it depth and volume. The grid could either be printed directly onto a fabric or embroidered on with beading and sequins- both of which create a voluminous illusion on any body type.
6.) Animal Print
Adding animal print to your wardrobe is a simple way to look effortlessly chic. Although it may seem a bit out there, animal prints are actually very easy to style. Similar to polka dots, pair your animal prints with complementary solid colors to create a runway look without the hassle. Incorporating some animal print to your outfit is a guaranteed attention grabber while still looking feminine and sexy!
