Still Going Strong: Stars, Stripes + Dots

by Jill Manoff

The easiest way to update your look for spring? Mix in a few key prints. These three will work wonders all season. The best part? You may already have them.

Forget saving star prints for the Fourth of July. This season, they work night and day, every day—and their effect is more edgy than festive or patriotic. To wear it just right, start with a star-dotted top, then anchor it with denim—avoiding red at all costs.

This season, stripes are everywhere—and we couldn’t be happier about it. They’re unexpected, yet perfect, when paired with trendy florals—and they’re surprisingly versatile, in every single combo. Our favorites include classic white-and-navy and a variety of brights, which can read ultra-preppy.

Polka Dots
Trend spotting? You’ll want to pay attention: Polka dots are set to be big (Only figuratively! Avoid any that are larger than Gobstopper-sized.) this spring, and they’re a must for your collection—if only for added whimsy. To get the look, score a dotted blouse for your rotation, or take the look more playful. A dotted dress is perfection!
