Printed dresses are bold, stand-alone pieces that can be extremely versatile for day or night, and not as difficult to wear as you think. Here are a couple of tips to get you started:

Keep it simple with accessories. Patterned dresses don’t require much dressing up, they’re busy on their own.

Balance out a bold print with solids. For example, black tights or a navy blue sweater can help neutralize an over-the-top print.

If you’re going to add an accessory, match it up with the most prominent color in the pattern.
