Spring is the season to make your mark, literally. Prints are in, from ditzy florals to bold graphics to tribal patterns and everything in between. Wear them head-to-toe, mix them, take a risk with them, we promise, almost anything goes for 2011. We're personally embracing floral maxi dresses with a bit of a bohemian vibe, especially since it's Coachella season. But don't be afraid to mix contrasting prints on the top and bottom, whether you're layering shirts or mixing a top with a skirt or pair of shorts. Look for common colors when mixing and matching, and try to pair big prints with smaller ones to keep from looking like a fashion disaster. Keep accessories neutral when clothing prints are wild, and you won't look like a kindergartner who was allowed to dress herself.
