TRENDSPOTTING: comic book prints

Can anyone say "geek chic"?! This fall its time to go bold with comic print fashion!

This is one of our favorite trends this season. It has come and gone, but for right now, its definitely back again! You can find it in all aspects of fashion right now: boldly printed clothing, Marvel and comic themed accessories, and comic book / pastel colors in both clothing and make up.

When worn the right way, comic book printed items can definitely create a cool and eye catching outfit! This trend is also very comfy without looking sloppy. Comic book prints are bright, bold, and in your face which makes them a really fun fashion statement. If you're looking for something to make you stand out from the rest, this trend is the perfect choice for you.

This geek chic trend ranges from prints accented with the classic sound effects like “Ka-Pow!” and “Bam!” all the way to actual all-over comic strips. For those of you 80s & 90s kids, it is a very cool throwback to your childhood. Who didn’t wear clothing with superheroes on them at some point?! If not superheroes, you probably had a shirt with your favorite cartoon character on it.

Celeb Style: Beyonce has rocked a "Ka-Pow!" sweater, Lucy Hale wore a comic print dress on an episode of Pretty Little Liars, Jesy and Perrie from Little Mix wore some awesome Batman prints to an event, and there are several major designers with comic inspired designs in their new collections right now.
