Because the rules were made to be broken.

What is more style-celebratory than a gorgeous print? Prints are an easy way to add a touch of intrigue to any ensemble – and with minimal effort too. They can be expressive, vibrant, attention-grabbing, and bold, soft, feminine, flirty, and fun. And with an endless and varied offering there’s certainly something for everyone.

Because the rules were made to be broken.

Some believe that great style is defined by a particular set of rules. We’re all familiar with them – they’ve been around for as long as any of us can remember. For the most part, these rules have passed as law, but a few brave women among us have begun to question them. As it turns out, under even the slightest interrogation these so-called pillars of fashion crack and crumble and are exposed for what they really are: basically bogus, absolutely arbitrary, sartorial silliness. read more
