The printed sundress is  summer wardrobe staple. We all want to be feminine and flirty, which automatically brings to mind florals. But your summer swagger should go beyond that. In vintage you'll find big, bold graphics from the 80's, the best in bohemian chic ethnic prints from the 70's, and slick, modernist color blocks from the 70's. I, for one, have a soft spot for loud 90's chain link prints. The type of thing typical in the track suit jackets of the day. This brings us to the subject of this post--how to wear vintage prints this summer. From the recycled tribal prints of contemporary designer, Novella Royale, to the out-all-night appeal of a vintage kimono jacket,  8 Ways to Wear Prints teaches vintage style, new tricks. Anymore ideas for vintage summertime print wearing? Tell us in the comments section below!
