If you’re not a fan of wearing statement accessories on your street style, simply pick a summer-inspired print that will do the tricks for you. Floral prints, palm patterns, and stripes are one of the most popular motifs this summer. Like Hallie, simply opt for a cobalt blue floral dress that will give some breezy and feminine vibe to your summer looks regardless of wearing accessories.

Bring the best of your prints by teaming them with neutrals.

Neutral shades of black, gray, white, brown, and camel are great backgrounds for your prints to shine. Like Hallie, simply team your leopard print skirt with a white blouse and black blazer that will make it looks classy, perfect for the office, or make your printed tube dress office-appropriate by teaming it with a black tee. Or, wear the nautical-chic style by going for a pair of striped culottes teamed with a cropped bandeau top like Hallie did, making her summer style trendy and season-appropriate.

Add some pop to your looks by wearing catchy colors with bold prints.

There might be saying that you must wear one statement piece at a time, but this season, fashion is all about making a bold statement like never before. Like Hallie, think of wearing a printed blouse with a pair of mustard pants, or a cobalt blue tank top with a graphic skirt to make your street style more fashion-forward and trendy.

Create a coordinating look by teaming your print with matching ensembles or accessories.

If you’re a fan of matching colors to create a cohesive look, team your prints with accessories or ensembles in the matching shade present in your pattern like Hallie did. For instance, think of teaming your floral print skirt with pink accents with a pastel pink top and a bag that will give some romantic and feminine vibe on your looks. Or, opt for cobalt blue shoes and clutch that matches your blouse for a coordinating yet subtle style.

Mix your prints for a modern and trendy style.

Mixing prints are so trendy right now, so learn the basics on wearing the skills to create a more fashion-forward look. Like Hallie, you may start by teaming neutral colored prints together for a more cohesive look before plunging into advanced mixing styles. Then, start pairing prints in the same hue but in a different shade for a cohesive yet daring style, and finally, feel free to wear your favorite printed pieces as long as they will give you a polished and sleek look. Indeed, summer is the perfect time to wear prints so pick yours and have fun in exploring your summer looks.
