It never fails, each year I always struggle with ideas of what to wear for Easter and Spring in general.
I am a Fall/Winter type of dresser and I naturally gravitate toward dark and vibrant colors so when “pastel season” comes around I’m always at a loss.
Luckily Spring 2021 has brought a whole new moody type of Spring palette in the form of watercolor prints. It’s a walk on the softer side (like pastels) but with an emo-esc fashion twist.
Think of the watercolor trend as the chic grown-up relative of tie-dye, but with the added effect of blotchy, almost diluted-like edges. While some designers’ takes on watercolor feature more uniform patterns like Dries Van Noten, others like Acne Studios and Kenzo used them in a dip-dye effect to create random delicate patterns.
Influenced by the work of master painters, watercolor prints bring a mood of romantic expressiveness to womenswear. You will see watercolor prints in both all-over patterns and in oversized placements against white and off-white bases which give a fresh “clothing as canvas” effect.
Soft, dreamy and totally perfect for Easter dressing it’s a great way to get that Spring vibe without sacrificing your “I hate pastels” mantra.
Chocolate eggs? Done! Easter Baskets? Assembled. What to wear for Easter? An easy no-brainer with soft watercolor prints!
