chic prints.

This season, we’re making up for the neutrals that have been so prevalent lately — not just with bright colors, but also with patterns, patterns, and more patterns. From florals to animal prints and leafy greens to fruits, this summer we really are what we wear.

                                          leopard print lucca couture urban outfitters

As is typical, I spent my weekend on Boston’s Newbury Street. These high waisted leopard-print shorts, accented with sailor-like buttons, caught my eye immediately — if there’s a print you can wear year-round, it’s leopard print. Pair it with a neutral shade, otherwise you’ll go from fierce to just plain savage. Available at Urban Outfitters, $49.

                                         dsquared2 floral dress

Bring the vacation to you! If you’re not afraid to stand out (or possibly blend in with the foliage?), this DSQUARED2 Lauwren dress is definitely an attention-grabber. Available on shopbop.com, $835.

                                            Preen sunset silk blouse

The watercolor-like appearance of this silk Preen blouse captures all the colors of a summer sunset in one shirt. And with so many hues, this top goes with everything. Wear it with a nude skirt, white wide-legged pants or black skinny jeans. Available on net-a-porter.com, $1,310.

                                        jeffrey campbell fruit bowl shoes

Pinkberry’s not the only thing you can top off with fresh fruit! These Jeffrey Campbell Fruitbowl platforms complement those white sundresses that are trending this summer. Available on shopnastygal.com, $158.

review: jeffrey campbell brit wrap strap booties, $230

                                     jeffrey campbell brit wrap strap bootie

I’ve been looking for the perfect utilitarian boot for a long time. As much as I love the lace-up look, it just hasn’t worked for me, so when I discovered these slouchy strap booties on shopbop.com (fave!), I thought I had hit the jackpot.

Unfortunately, they weren’t what I was looking for, as hard as I tried to like them. The leather was too thick — enough so that there wasn’t sufficient slouch — and talk about heavy! These boots aren’t just utilitarian in appearance. In these, I felt like I ought to have been chopping wood, not walking around in my skinny jeans. 

Jeffrey Campbell, I love your shoes — they’re unique, made of high-quality materials, and super stylish. These boots? They just weren’t for me.
