Bright, Fun Prints For Summer

I admit, I'm sort of a Plain Jane dresser. I like wearing neutral colors (does beige count as a "color"?) and veer away from crazy patterns. But perhaps it's time to expand my fashionably dull horizons -- to inject some fun into my monotonous sea of greys. Whether you share my problem or not, here are five items that will help shake things up! Wear the Rain-Bows Tee, ModCloth ($28, pictured). Why limit yourself to wearing bows just in your hair? This adorable shirt with a bright, colorful bow print provides all the cuteness without the fuss of tying.

Ship Shape Dress, Nasty Gal ($58). Ahoy! The nautical trend takes on a literal meaning with this dress covered in whimsical sailboats. (Life preservers not necessary.)

Mod Floral Dress, Forever 21 ($22.80). It will be hard not to smile wearing this strapless dress covered in big pink and purple flowers.

Jenny Skirt, Delia*s ($34.50). This tribal-inspired print on a bubble skirt is the epitome of summer chic. Wear it with flip flops or wedges for a casual or dressy look.

Circle Game Classic Della Bag, Della ($48). Della offers a bunch of these hobo bags in different brightly colored prints, made from vegan, sustainable West African textiles. Proceeds from Della go toward helping the women of Hohoe, Ghana.
