for Bold

It’s time to embrace prints and patterns

Wearing prints can sometime take on a negative connotation of attention-seeking or dressing obnoxiously, but that's not always the case. There are a crazy number of prints ranging from floral to camo, and of course the good old fashioned stripes, but there are subtle ways to be quiet about styling loud prints.

Prints are synonymous with warm weather, which we don't disagree with, but you can wear them year around. Floral and paisley are usually worn in summer and spring whereas camo and plaid can be worn in the cooler months. You can break these unwritten rules by wearing any print during any season—the key is how they're styled.

If you're wearing busy patterns, use the “less is more” approach and never under any circumstances mix prints—if you look at the big fits from Paris fashion week, you'll see that one statement piece stands on its own. For example, if you're wearing a floral print on top, pair it with some chinos or light-colored denim to offset the look. If you're wearing a pattern on the bottom, throw on a simple shoe so there's no clashing between the two. We've pulled together some of our current favorite prints. Whichever style you go with, we guarantee you'll be the most stylish person in the room.

The original camouflage patterns were hand painted by a team of fine artists who were enrolled as camoufleurs for the French army in WW1. They were enlisted as experts in concealment, and painted equipment and positions to blend in with the ground and sky.
