1. How to Wear Bold Prints:
Bold prints are definitely in right now—but how do us petite gals wear them without letting them wear us instead? Says Elizabeth, “The general ‘rule’ regarding petites and prints is that it should be no larger than the size of your fist in order to keep things proportionate.” But that doesn’t mean that you have to stick to teeny tiny patterns! The petite style maven adds, “If you’re more of the ‘big or go home’ type, opt for a print using similar color tones, and one that has a consistent pattern throughout the item.” If you REALLY want to go wild, try a piece with thick, vertical stripes on for size. Most important of all, though, is attitude: As Elizabeth says, “Your confidence will help carry the boldest of prints!”
