The Power of Prints

Posted on

We all love solids - there's something about wearing one color that's so chic and classic. But a stripe here or a leopard there can add an exciting energy to your closet. Read all about how to wear some our favorite Shelby Jewel prints for spring! 

The ultimate staple: stripes. It's a print that's so ingrained in fashion, it almost behaves like a neutral - you can pretty much wear it with anything! With all the different colors, sizes, and movements, it's no wonder stripes are so easy to match. SJ's coveted striped piece for the season is our Seine Striped Sweater. Pairing a classic sweet cream with clean black stripes and adding a high-neck detail + oversized sleeves makes this a must-have for spring! Complete a lovely nighttime look with a pretty pink pleated skirt and black booties.


A fun yet timeless print? Polka dots! Iconic dotted looks worn by the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Princess Diana have now been revitalized - polka dots are now sophisticated yet playful but versatile enough to wear for every occasion. The key is to modernize the retro-cool pattern whilst adding your own personal flare. A gorgeous jewel-tone sprinkled with mini white dots - our Evelyn Pleated Dress is the essence of femininity! This dress is ultra flattering, from the flowy pleated silhouette to the matching belt to accentuate the waist. For an elegant spring wedding look, add a nude heel and delicate jewelry like our White Rose Necklace.  


Animal print has been a trademark all year long - so why not add it to your spring wardrobe! While wild spots and stripes have become more and more of a trend, incorporating the bold print into classic styles is a great way to make this look endure the test of time. The browns and blacks found so heavily in nature are basically a neutral - so pair it with anything in your closet! A fave is our Olive Leopard Mini Dress. The olive color is a fun twist on the daring print, and the smocked waist is a subtle yet girly touch. Pair with a matching olive shoulder bag and strappy heeled sandals for a cute look on a day out. 


Shapes weren't all that interesting in geometry, but they make for a bold way to liven up your look! From necklines to hems to patterns - geometry is a huge part of fashion in ways you might have never though of! And geometric prints in particular are a visually interesting way to give an edge to an otherwise simple garment. Channel your boss babe vibes in our Miranda Dress! The sophisticated midi length and round neck are effortlessly elevated with a striking pattern. Make this dress stand out even more by adding some accents that are less busy but just as bold - try a red trench coat or multi-colored hexagon clutch


If you want to embrace the true spirit of spring, of course look no further than florals! This iconic print has been in full bloom in every spring wardrobe since the beginning of time. (No pun intended, haha!) The joy of moving on from the chilly weather of winter to fragrant flowers and warm sunshine is perfectly embodied by a sweet floral print. Our Eileen Floral Swing Dress is just the floral every gal needs! This piece is a perfect mix of the dainty pattern with soft hues, and a flattering silhouette with a high neck detail. Pair clear + neutral heels for any occasion. Don't let the floral fun stop there - add a floral-inspired statement earring like our Open Floral Studs


Bold. Fun. Girly. Whatever statement you want to make this spring, SJ has plenty of print pieces to make you stand out!
