Going for the Prints

Prints have always been precarious for girls with curves, which is why so many of us tend to shy away from them. But I abide by two simple rules when it comes to pulling off patterns, be they tight geometrics or large-scale blooms. First, you can't go wrong pairing, say, a vibrant floral skirt with a solid sweater. What results is a chic and well-proportioned silhouette ideal for any size. Second, when mixing prints (you go, girl!), make sure both pieces come from the same color palette so the look is sophisticated, not blinding. On the prowl for even more fashion finds?
