Missoni-inspired prints represent everything thatâ€™s great about summer style: their graphic zigzags are bold, colorful and loud. Theyâ€™re a little risky, and thus a great when partnered with more subdued, easy-to-wear accessories like understated flats or a white bag. Best of all, the prints are funky and frenetic, a fashionable statement about the carefree energy of the season. Patterned pieces from the Italian designer, like the chic, billowy zigzag stripe dress ($435 @ Intermix), cost a pretty penny, but luckily, others are adapting the trend. Old Navy’s Trapeze Cami ($12.50) is a fun riff on the legendary print, and Sweet Pea’s chevron v-neck top ($54 @ Bluefly) is a great graphic mate for denim capris.
Take the look to the beach by using a bright Missoni Sport scarf ($168 @ SearleNYC) as a head wrap, and pair with oversized shades for a boho chic look. Or zig and zag with Paul Frank Swim Bikini ($90 @ YOOX.com) in notice-me colors.
