Make a Statement: The 3 Fall Prints You Can’t Pass Up

Chunky knits in deeper hues are a given come fall. But this season, shake up that sweater rotation with these three statement prints. Trust us, your closet with thank you.

The print: Feather
How to wear it: A good feather print can be hard to find. Avoid lots of sparkle to keep from looking like a figure skater, and aim for minimal print coverage – think accents, not allover. Lastly, keep accessories sleek and modern to balance out the print’s whimsical nature.

The print: Chevron
How to wear it: This super-popular take on stripes has been booming since early 2012 – and it’s still going strong. This season, however, try a new take on chevron by trading in bright solids for alternating prints (like the dress above). Add a structured blazer and let this on-trend pattern carry you through fall.

The print: Tribal
How to wear it: Aim for monochromatic. A wild, tribal print speaks volumes on its own, so don’t overdo it with color. Pair your patterned piece with subtle, toned-down basics, like a solid V-neck sweater or tucked-in chambray shirt. Then, finish off your look with a classic black pump.
