What exactly is a placed print? It’s the happy medium between all-over pattern and solid colors—prints strategically placed in order to create unexpected detailing, flattering illusions, or a bold style statement. Scroll on for a few of our favorite pieces featuring placed prints.
Next-level color blocking
What’s better than a pink bag? A color-blocked pink bag. Eyes are instantly drawn to the bottom half of this purse, which is accented with tonal stripes and edgy rivets, creating detailing that feels fresh and unexpected.
Pump up the volume
Your outfit doesn’t have to rely on bold colors in order to stand out. Look for tops that combine ruffles and strategically placed florals for the illusion of fully-bloomed tiers.
On the front line
Simplicity can still be bold when done right. A wide, single stripe in a contrasting color is not only fashion-forward, but also incredibly easy to wear.
