When I think of watercolor, I’m reminded of my painting class freshman year in college. I sucked at painting but I was great at making a mess. You mix and mix and mix, attempting to create the perfect blend of calming colors but really, it’s just a blurry blotch of ink. This is what I associate watercolor with: an abstract, beautiful mess.
I can’t say this is a trend I’m excited about. It’s a bit bland and…watered down. Perfect for this time of year, tho. Rainy, gloomy with a splash of peace and serenity.
Browsing through my friend Krystal’s blog, I came across this about watercolor shoes for spring. Like I said, this trend doesn’t blow me away but I could see myself rocking the four items above.
- Lela Rose Floral Print Silk Organza Dress ($1795)
- Forever 21 Water Color Sky Fit & Flare Dress ($24.80)
- Alice + Olivia Dina Watercolor Pumps ($295)
- Alexander Wang Walker Printed Canvas Backpack ($204.75)
I would suggest keeping it simple when considering what to pair with a watercolor printed piece. A simple white blouse to accentuate a printed skirt or jeans. Nude pumps to balance out a printed dress. What else?! How do you feel about watercolor prints?
