Spice it up with a bright and colorful clutch. Patterns are all the craze this season. Be daring in a print prom dress and match it with a solid color handbag. Here’s a helpful fashion hint: pick a color from the pattern to match with your handbag.

For example, with this patterned dress, you can pair it with a gold or silver clutch.

SPRING 2013 – IT’S TIME FOR PRINT!

Written by: Connie Bravo

This spring, one hot trend featured in all the magazines is PRINT!  From cute floral print to bold tribal print, it’s making headway in all the major fashion houses.  Traffic Shoe is bringing print to our customers with our new line Tribal Inspired crossbody’s, messengers and backpacks exclusively at Traffic Shoe.

TRIBAL AZTEC PRINT BAGS

What’s great about these prints is that you can match it up with a very simple style, like jeans and a t-shirt, or you can make a fashion statement by matching it with other floral prints like this DKNY Blazer or you can pair it up with a cute dress.
