Style 1: Printed Totes

Spring and Summer are usually associated with sunshine, bright prints and loud colour. So, what better way to enter Spring than to incorporate prints into your style. Printed totes work great with plain dresses but even better with printed ones like in the image below. It can be paired with a pair of sandals and some jewellery to go with. Bold prints and loud colours scream Summer and make your outfit feel more fun.
