We're wrapping up July with our last Pattern Adventures of the month! We showed you how to style a bedroom with novelty prints, and now I'm showing you how to bring them into your wardrobe. From dresses to t-shirts and fun accessories, here are three ways to wear them this summer…

Pattern Adventures: Oh Joy! Wears Novelty Prints

Shine Bright — I love pairing graphic tees with statement skirts. It makes the outfit instantly (and just slightly!) more casual while still fun and feminine. I went full sparkle with this outfit and paired this AMAZING skirt with a simple black and white novelty shirt and bright fuchsia heels.

Fruit Punch — A cherry top and a lemon purse? Why not! This outfit is super playful, great for warm summer days, and easy to wear pretty much anywhere. I kept it super casual with denim shorts, played off the yellow bag with matching yellow shoes, and topped it off with some fun sunnies.

Party Animal — I don't wear animal prints that often, but this all-over tiger print (with actual tigers!) is so fun. I love that it has a mix of colors and feels like a great piece to transition to fall. To punch up the color, I paired it with velvet green heels and a pale yellow purse.

  1. I love these looks, but one suggestion that I’ve been thinking about… I appreciate that you’re able to fit into kids clothing, but I’m sure the majority of readers do not have the body type to do that. I wish you could feature some options for women’s clothing that would work for more shapes and sizes! Thank you!

  2. Hi Emily,
    Thanks so much for your feedback! I completely agree with you. I think that’s the one downside to any fashion post is that pieces that compliment the person wearing them don’t always look good on every body type. It’s hard to find a one style fits all as I think every body type has pieces that work on them best. Which is why I started our Dressing the Team series which brings in my team and showing how we all style a similar piece differently:

    Everyone seems to love it, so hopefully you find some inspiration there!
    Joy
