Must- have spring-inspired prints

Adding prints to your wardrobe is a great way to liven things up, especially for a brand new season. Start fresh this spring with our picks for five fun pieces in some of our all-time favorite fabric prints and patterns.
Striped dress

Stripes

Say yes to stripes this spring. Not only are they a style staple no matter the season, they do a great job of brightening up your look. Instead of last spring and summer’s nautical stripes, take a more sophisticated approach with a thinner, more muted stripe print. Think spring with this cute rugby stripe dress in bright blue with navy stripes (jcrew.com, $40).

Polka dots

Polka dot blouse

We can’t resist this perennially pretty polka dot print. It makes us smile no matter what it’s on – from umbrellas to sundresses to blouses. Why do we love it for spring? Polka dots manage to strike a perfect balance between playful and stylish. As the weather warms up, treat yourself to something dotty. We suggest this simple but chic boatneck polka dot blouse (loft.com, $55).

Tribal

Tribal Shirt

Tribal print showed up on more than a few spring runways and we can’t wait to make this eye-catching spring trend a part of our warmer weather wardrobe. As fun to wear as it is fashionable, tribal-inspired styles are also versatile – wear them to the office or for a night out. We can’t get enough of this fun, easy-wearing tribal print tank top (buckle.com, $25).

Safari

Safari shirt

The urban jungle can be an unforgiving place (fighting for a taxi or elbowing your way into line for a coffee are tough). Be prepared for anything with an outfit inspired by the safari. Take the contents of your closet up a few notches with this stylish piece, a short sleeve blouse with fresh, safari-inspired print (macys.com, $60).

Floral

Floral print

If the spring runways were any indication, it looks like we’re in for another season where florals figure prominently. We’re not complaining – we adore this flirty, feminine print. Add some serious spring-inspired style to your wardrobe with anything – from shoes to bags to blouses – in an on-trend floral print. We’re pretty sure you’ll love this flirty floral skirt in soft pastels (shopruche.com, $39).
