While florals communicate femininity and stripes more preppiness (neither of these bad things at all), graphic prints are more interesting...sometimes you just don't know what to make of it, except that the wearer is not just a solids type of gal. For the office, graphic prints can show up anywhere...on a skirt in the summer or a trench in the winter, or even on your desk (like my bulletin boards).

The great thing about graphic prints is that you can do them loud and proud or you can be more subtle about it. Most of my picks are on the subtle side, but if you want to really jump into the prints arena, look for something that has a variety of colors rather than just two or three.
