Marble Print, It's More Than Art
What a cool print!
Birthed by the collision of interior decor and fashion, marble the not so new kid on the block is having a moment and I don’t mean in the kitchen but on notebooks, cell phone cases and very commonly on laptop skin. This print has branched off counter tops, gone fashion and has been a player in clothing giving florals a run for their money. Style setters have been embracing and it and omg, it totally dominated summer fashion and majorly ‘trumped’ florals and other familiar prints in recent summers.
How To Style
Looking Chic in Marble Print is no rocket science. It’s naturally a very fun print and that’s what to have in mind with you think marble. Bear in mind that less is more with this print.
- Update your style in a flash by adding marble pieces styled with simple and clean staples.
- Let your marble piece take center stage or be the star of the look by toning down everything else.
- Finish a look with some marble accessories like a bag or even shoes and sunnies.
- Print on print using marble and stripes for instance looks so chic and fashion forward. Break the print with a belt to create interest while cinching your waist.
A good old pleated skirt is given an update in a marble print and offset by the frills of this button down dainty peplum lace top. I paired it with pink velvet sneakers that I discovered at my local TJ Maxx to make it Spring appropriate. This look packs a pretty punch and will ensure that brunch dates will never be the same, ;).
Has marble been on your radar too?
Taking the sartorial plunge will be so worth your while. Me? I’m smitten, totally! I embrace every aspect of this trend. Clothing - check! Shoes - check! Phone case - check!
The word marble originated from the Greek work ‘Marmaros’ meaning something very beautiful and shiny.
Drifting Sand is a marbling technique that involves blowing ink through a bamboo straw and was was first referenced in a Chinese book.
