AFI Investigates: Prints – Killer Style for the petite Asian frame?
The Suspect: Prints – Tribal, Retro, Floral & Graphic
The Charge: Killer style for petite Asian frames.
- Knock ‘em dead with edgy, fashion-forward looks with graphic print t-shirts in monochrome tones or dig-up the past with retro designs in vintage hues.
- Seduce and charm in feminine prints like florals and polka dots. Sweeten the deal with flowy dresses in pretty petal prints or stand trial in the Juvenile court with cheeky printed shorts and animal print tops.
- Tip-off: Dare to mix and match your prints – try rockin’ printed pants with a grungy, motif t-shirt.
9am – Corporate Scam
1pm – Lunchtime Affair
7pm – Evening Heist
Weekend – Sunday Blues
The Verdict: Guilty as charged.
Prints, whether in pretty pastels, sharp graphics or quirky motifs, are making a killing on Asian as well as Western runways. They steal your heart with their versatility and cheeky, irreverent attitude. So, be prepared to surrender your wardrobe to the invasion of animal print, polka dots, tribal design, florals and retro geometry.
