Trend We Love: The Printed Dress. Find Out How To Pick The Perfect One & Style It!

By Elle · August 23, 2012

First, Pick Out a Printed Dress. So Cute!

If you're into graphic prints:

Love having all eyes on you at work? Go with these bold but polished dresses--then wear them out at night!

If you're into daring prints:

Trippy, right? Part artsy, part sci-fi, these vivid designs are great for formal nights out, like weddings. And if you upstage the bride? Oh, well!

If You're into romantic prints:

These darling styles can be worn sweetly with sandals, or ironically--bring on the biker jacket and boots!

</p>

Your Rules for Wearing Prints - Easy Tips For A Tricky Trend

1. DO wear big prints where your body is smaller, and smaller prints where you're bigger, to even out your curves.

2. DO mix your prints but not your type of print. Stick with one of the categories above, and make sure your pieces have at least one color in common.

3. DO pick solid accessories so you don't have to take an Excedrin just to look in the mirror.

With Fashion Week right around the corner, it’s time to start organizing a game plan for the always legendary Fashion’s Night Out! Now in its fourth year, the shopping and celebrity studded event is sure to be the best yet, so get out that planner and map your route to make the most of fashion’s biggest night on September 6th. Here are 10 Glam approved events which are not to be missed.

Chloe

It’s all about Alice this year at Chloe, as the luxury house chose the evening to launch their newest iconic handbag. With speciality Alice cocktails and celebratory window designs, Chloe’s Alice is set to take center stage.

Diane von Furstenberg

It’s no secret that a Girls obsession has taken over the twenty-something generation. This year, DVF is employing Allison Williams and Vogue’s Meredith Melling Burke as hosts for an evening of styling, fortune telling and tunes by Solange Knowles.

Henri Bendel

The iconic relator is getting theatrical this year, thanks to the talent of Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity! Swarovki goodies like encrusted FNO tshirts and special iPhone cases will be available for sale while famed fashion illustrator Izak Zenou signs prints of his famous Bendel girl prints!

Lanvin

Bag Savvy

You don't neccessarily need 20 Birkins, but having only one bag that you carry every day just won't cut it. We've narrowed it down to the five key handbags every women, on any budget, should own. How many of these essentials do you have in your closet?

 

1. Day Bag

Buy one in a neutral color and make sure it can hold everything you need from 8am to midnight.

 

 

Splurge: Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Stripe "Roma" Tote

 

 

Bargain: GUESS Dizzy Satchel

</p>

2. Chic Clutch

Sparkle works with jeans or for formal occasions.

Splurge: Anya Hindmarch Valorie Bells embellished glitter-finished leather clutch


Bargain: Moyna Beaded Fold-Over Clutch

3. Crossbody Bag

'Hands-free' isn't just for cellphones anymore. If it's going to be a busy day, don't let your handbag wear you down (so to speak)!

 

Splurge: BALENCIAGA Classic City Bag

 

 

Bargain: Kate Spade New York Cobble Hill-Tenley Cross Body

</p>

4. Classic Black Purse

It's the one your daughter will want to borrow a million years from now.

 

Splurge: Gucci Soft Stirrup Large Shoulder Bag

 

Bargain: Tory Burch Dena Tote

5. Travel Bag

No matter what your budget, make sure it's sturdy and wheeled.
