From playful prints seen at Markus Lupher to all-over stripes at Gryphon, graphic sweaters are the most outrageously fun trend Fashionistas have seen yet. Make like those in the know and team this Markus Lupher knit with a pair of solid color pants to make the illustration really pop. For Fashionistas that love the trend but want to tone it down a bit, Stella McCartney's Intarsia sweater is less of a cartoon graphic and more of a color infused optical illusion, making it easy to incorporate subtle pieces.
Today's Fashionista wears her heart anywhere but on her sleeve. The contrasting colors liven up any Fashionista's wardrobe while the graphic heart is playful and irreverent. These aren't the typical graphic T-shirts you see on the angsty teenagers perusing your local shopping mall. In fact, the new graphic sweater offers a touch of elegance into the mix and trust me, you'll love these youthful prints and the experimental color blocking so much that you just might try the trend for yourself. If I had to chose, I'd sport the Samantha sweater by Tory Burch.
Since quirky prints can catch onlookers attention easily, keep the rest of your look simple and clean cut. Opt for leggings if the graphic sweater is oversized for a relaxed fit during the day and throw on a fitted pencil skirt to stand out from the night crowd. Graphic sweaters can be worn with your favorite pair of jeans and loafers or a frilly mini skirt and heels. Keep in mind, the color and print may dictate the rest of your ensemble but will not fail to pump up your charm.
