Spring 2013 Trend Flash: Blue and White Prints

Laurel Pinson

Prints have played a major role on the runways over the past few seasons — particularly over-the-top original patterns and graphic, eye-catching styles. For Spring 2013, however, we’ve noticed a more ladylike approach trending in a series of collections: chic blue and white prints at Prabal Gurung, Lela Rose, and more that seem more reminiscent of a Ming vase or a Chinese porcelain pattern than a modern art exhibit.

Perhaps these iterations signal a softer, more retail-friendly approach to graphic prints — either way, these seem like exactly the types of outfits we’d want to wear come spring.
