I often have clients that fear prints. Whether they are big and bold or artistic swipes, prints can be scary or simply unpreferred. Details and embellished can make up for the lack of panache prints brings to one's look, but nothing beats the perfect print.
The best way to start with prints or keep prints to a minimum is in your accessories. A printed scarf or heel is a fantastic topper to a solid colored outfit and I recently discovered some new printed bracelets from Chamak by Priya Kakkar. These patterned bangles make a sigh inspiring difference to a simpler ensemble.
There is also the option of a subtle print. Minimal contrast, tiny images or light pops of color can sooth and entertain even the most anti-print client.
