Get Used To The Palm Tree Trend–Celebs Are Going To Be Wearing It ‘Til Summer
Nothing screams summer like a perfect row of palm trees. (Don't you always double tap photos of these beauties on Instagram, too?) And while we still have a whole season to get through until our anticipated tropical getaways, you can still celebrate your favorite season by taking a style tip from Molly Sims, Beyonce, Anne Hathaway, and Heidi Klum. Each celebrity has recently been seen in palm tree prints, which seems to be equally as festive as wearing an ugly sweater during Christmas or sporting red, white, and blue on the Fourth of July. And it just so turns out that this print looks just at home on a knitted sweater-and-skirt set (a nod to this season's two-piece matching sets trend) as on a red carpet-worthy gown. From accessories to silky blouses, check out our slideshow of palm tree-printed pieces that you're bound to put on no matter how cold (or warm) it is outside.

We Don’t See A Baby Bump Under Beyonce’s Printed Pants–Do You?
With Beyonce's world tour going on, it can be hard to keep track of the megastar. Recently, she took a break from her tour to promote her new animated movie, Epic, in London. Beyonce must have been inspired by the movie (she voices the queen of the forest--would you expect anything less?), because she arrived at the press junket wearing a green blazer and chinos featuring a nature-inspired print. And as far as we can tell, there's no baby bump to be found under the green and blue pants. Either the rumors aren't true, or the pants are super flattering. Either way, Beyonce's Barbara Bui Printed Chino Pants ($290, down from $485) are kind of amazing--they are right on trend with this season's photoreal designs. And if Beyonce gives something her seal of approval, you know it's good. Shop Queen Bey's outfit below: Barbara Bui Shawl Collar Blazer ($1,114.23) Barbara Bui Printed Chino Pants ($290, down from $485) For more celebrity looks, be sure to check out Khole K's striped tube dress, Nikki Reed’s blazer and Kerry Washington’s leather dress.
Spring’s Toile Resurgence Will Have Your Closet Looking Just Like Grandma’s China
Believe it or not, one of this spring's hottest patterns looks like it came right out of your grandma's china closet--toile! Fortunately, there's nothing ancient about the way designers like Zara, Duro Olowu and Paul & Joe are working it. Sure, the blue and white color combo may resemble Nana's old plates and cups, but when scattered across fitted dresses, peplum tops and structured blazers, the pattern looks surprisingly new and stylish. We recommend pairing it with your most daring, of-the-moment accessories--think chrome heels or a bright crossbody bag. Shop our favorite toile print in the slideshow. Plus, check out other unexpected prints we love: tie-dye, pineapple print and galaxy print! [Photo: Paul & Joe]
Who Needs A Seaside View When You’ve Got Spring’s Beach Scene Clothing Trend?
While it's not exactly beach weather yet (come on, summer), we don't think we can wait another few months to relax with sun, sand, and palm trees. Our solution? Fake it! While we wait for it to warm up a bit, we're planning on pretending we're oceanside with fun, beach scene clothing and accessories. From sunset-printed bathing suits to wave-adorned jeans, if we can't force 80 degrees and sunny upon us now, we sure as heck are going to pretend.

Why Play It Safe In Stripes When You Can Stand Out This Season In Aztec Print?
Tribal prints have been trendy for a while now, but this season it's all about Aztec inspiration. Done in bright, bold colors with a mix of straight stripes and zigzag designs, it's hard to miss. But that's kind of the beauty of it--it's in your face without being offensive. Plus, they're so easy to wear. A bold Aztec print does all the work--you just need to pair it with something solid and plain for a cute outfit in a flash. And if you think about it, all these Aztec-inspired prints are really just stripes with the volume turned way up. So if you love yourself a good nautical stripe, you have to try Aztec stripes this spring. From skirts to handbags, click through the slideshow to shop our faves.

Love The Look Of Lace, But Hate That It Snags? Filigree Print Is The Next Best Thing
We're obsessed with patterns for spring--along with just about every designer known to man--so we couldn't be more thrilled that there's another popular print to add to our repertoire: filigree. Now upon first glance, it may look like lace, but it's not. And that's the beauty of it. Filigree print has all the beautiful, feminine intricacy of a lacy pattern, but zero threat of snagging on your bracelet or earring and really anything even remotely sharp. Designers like Chloe, Clover Canyon, and Robert Rodriguez have all embraced the trend and it's time you did, too. Browse our favorite filigree print pieces in the slideshow. Be sure to check out more prints we love for spring--honeycombs, stars, and super-saturated florals! [Photo: Extra Petite]
Can’t Afford To Go On A Rainforest Safari? Fake It ‘Til You Make It In Jungle Print

This spring's jungle prints are wild enough to transport you with just one look. Patterns are everywhere this season--from printed pants sets to printed bomber jackets--but jungle prints are arguably the standout. Whether it's a tropical foliage print dress, a pair of pants scattered with bright green leaves and animal print, or fierce jungle accessories, we can't get enough imagining how great this trend will look paired with crisp white on tan skin.

Not Ready For This Season’s Wild And Crazy Patterns? Play It Safe In A Star Print
To our great delight, prints are everywhere this season. There are printed short suits, printed pant sets, wild printed denim and even cool printed PJ pants. The prints range from subdued animal inspired patterns to bold graphic designs, but one of our faves (and one of the easiest to pull off) is star print. Just look at all the celebs who've rocked it: Kim Kardashian, Miranda Kerr and Reese Witherspoon to name a few. Whether it's a scattering of tiny stars on a dress, or larger stars on a top or pants, the print is an interesting, playful alternative to polka dots. This season we recommend you wear it with solids, or even with another print, because anything goes during the prints craze. Browse our favorite star print pieces in the slideshow.

5 Fall Prints You Need To Know (And Own)
Every season, prints come in so many choices that it might be hard to keep track. And for those patterns that occur to be on trend every season (stripes, florals, animal print), it's tough to decipher which is the latest look. Lucky for you, we've come up with five prints for fall that you should be adding to your closet—and a slideshow of our favorite products so you can easily get started. You're welcome! Blanket Stripes: Unlike the usual Breton stripe, this print is found on cozy textures, like sweaters and ponchos, in a variety of colors and sizes. The thicker the stripe, the better. Dark Florals: While florals are always affiliated with spring and summer, this feminine print takes a turn for the dark side in dramatic hues and lush tones. Colorful Lace: Like florals, colored lace, such as a chartreuse yellow, can also electrify a regularly ladylike material into something more eye-catching. Python: Every season, there's also an animal-print-of-the-moment, this fall, stock up on python or snakeskin-style prints, a slithery chic motif. Digital: We mentioned this kaleidoscopic, abstract print before as a staple for fall, and we'll say it again—psychedelic patterns are easy statement pieces to add to your wardrobe. Check out the only 5 handbags every woman should own, 30 things to own before 30, and seven types of shoes you need in your closet.
