Summer 2007 Fashion Trend: Bold Prints

Bold prints play up the season's vintage, deco, mod, floral, geometric, and folk aesthetics. Playfully positioned on feminine babydolls, easy swing tops, short dresses, empire waist and trapeze frocks, they're proof that fashion's fun side is here to stay. Wear this trend if you're feeling daring and a tad cheeky.
