April 14th, 2015 at 2:10am

Mother Nature has been a tad bit temperamental these past few weeks, so when the weather is drop dead gorgeous, you can bet all the Fashionistas are breaking out their skirts and dresses. So what kind of outfit can you wear to make an immediate statement? Go for prints—tribal prints to be exact. The patterns on dresses especially are statement-making and interesting, but they are effortless and comfortable at the same time.

This Fashionista decided to pull out all the stops when she dressed for the gorgeous spring weather. For an effortless look, she wears a beautiful maxi dress. The loud tribal print pattern is definitely the focus and immediately catches your eye. It is a loud print but at the same time grounds the outfit with its earthy coloring and natural fit. Adding a light denim shirt to the mix does not detract from the dress and adds an extra layer for that unexpected wind.

Her accessories contribute a lot of personality to her ensemble and add an eclectic edge. Her straw cowboy hat pairs nicely with the print, adding a slight western touch. In addition, her jelly shoes are simple and neutral yet are unique. Though not everyone’s cup of tea, the shoes are extremely comfortable, I promise! For on-the-go, she sports a beautiful vintage bucket bag with a printed map on the leather. The size and shape of the bag make it ideal for running around campus and the print again adds to the eclectic vibe this Fashionista is putting out.

How To: When it comes to loud prints, you cannot go wrong with one-pieces—whether it is a dress or a romper. The large quantity of the print makes the look cohesive. If you think it’s too much then try breaking up the look with accessories or light layers to draw away from the patterned print.
