Ladies, it time to reignite the flame with one of the hottest spring and summer trends: Prints! The runways were peppered with floral, tribal, abstract, and polka dot prints. Shake it up from your boring blacks and solids and show some pizzazz! Many Lip Ladies and pleasantly plus women are afraid to try prints for fear it will make them appear larger! Yet, when done right with flattering shapes for your body and a print that speaks to your spirit, you too can rock one of the season’s hottest trends while showing your personality!
Lip ladies, here are the runway inspirations. Then, scroll down to see the looks I’ve chosen just for you (regular women!!)

Lip Ladies, check out how Queen Latifah rocked this trend in her beautiful beaded tribal/African print caftan. Now, her’s are sold out on HSN at the moment. So, we’ll have to use her as inspiration.
These are free flowing options I found that should fit most of us Lip ladies nicely. Pants and maxi skirts go great with a solid clean tee or tank. If you are arm conscious, throw on a draped open front cardigan. Pair any of these looks with a comfortable pair of sandals in a nude, brown, or black color to match your dress and some pretty gold accessories (don’t forget your compression stockings or leggings – they double as shapewear anyway for those hips).
Don’t be afraid of prints! These incredible prints work in your most flattering styles: Maxi skirts, Maxi dresses, Wide leg pants, Caftans, Soft Pants. I love these styles because it is fairly easy to conceal your compression stockings or leggings, look pretty/girly, and get the support you need at the same time!
