Live Loud! Printed Jackets for Spring 2013

Loud prints aren’t showing any signs of slowing down this season, and if it were up to us, we’d want it to stay that way forever!

Just like Mother Nature intended spring to be colorful, our fave designers are sprouting all kinds of goodies in patterns from paisley to floral to batik. Here are some of our favorites so far.

Personally, I’m not “vogue” enough to go out in head-to-toe prints like the outfit below, but I will take that jacket and pair it with skinny jeans and a black top:

Printed Cropped by Patterson J. Kincaid

Varsity jackets were popular last season, and they continue on in spring in this track jacket. This is definitely my favorite in the bunch — mostly because it’ll look great with my Chuck Taylors.
