From a bounty of fanciful fruit and vegetables to fantastical fauna, whimsical prints and statement pieces are unabashedly loud this season as quirky, playful products create standout summer style.
Think Dolce & Gabbana’s lovable Spring/Summer 2012 bow-tie pasta earrings or take cues from the bold look-at-me patterns in the latest collections of Marc Jacobs, Marni and Prada. Whether in small doses, or head to toe, these whimsical looks pack all the personality and require little styling or accessorizing – simply let the imaginative whimsy speak for itself! All you will need to pull off this statement trend? One hundred percent confidence!
