June 1st, 2015 at 2:00am

Summer is in the air, and bold patterns are in for fashion. Wild patterns have been seen all over on skirts, dresses, shoes and any other summer wear. The variety of designs and colors can match anyone’s personality and style. Having a large printed piece can make putting together the rest of an outfit a breeze. The key is to keep the rest of the look basic by pairing a floral dress with a neutral shoe and simple necklace or a chevron top with denim shorts and sneakers.

A maxi skirt like this is a perfect pick for a warm summer day, because it is laid-back, comfortable and cute while keeping with the mood of summer. The neutral colors emphasize the pattern in the skirt which is the focus of this look while the simple tank top and beaded necklace only enhance the summer-boho feel.

With larger patterns, it’s best to keep the jewelry simple and similar to the rest of the outfit. In this outfit, pairing the neutral colors in the skirt with similar colors in the jewelry was an easy way to bring it all together while remaining easy and breezy. An ensemble like this proves you don’t have to go all out to pull off a perfect summer pattern.

How To: When choosing a pattern be sure to choose colors you like and a fit you could wear forever. When putting together your look, try to stick to the same color scheme so the variety of colors don’t overshadow your look. Overall, keep any footwear and jewelry simple, but not boring.
