Pretty In Print

Amanda Ross

Stylist Amanda Ross (with JJ Martin and designer Maryam Malakpour) wearing a Burberry dress–this is a good print too. I had Amanda photographed recently for an updated KiC profile and will put it together in the next few days.

  • I’ve been sort of stalking this dress as it was sold out for awhile. Just went to NAP from your link and they had one left in my size which I ordered. I’m not a print fan either, but this one looks great and I love the fabric – hope it works out.

  • I used to think nothing of buying prints, and then I suddenly saw them as insubstantial, non-wardrobe builders. Strictly occasional wear. I still see them this way, but I love this dress and for the occasional print this is fabulous. It is business appropriate and still good for many dressy events.

  • This print reminds me a bit of the Diane VonFurstenberg print dresses of the 70’s, and I think that is why I like this dress. But I agree with April’s comments on buying prints and how they fit into the wardrobe. My preference for print in the form of silk scarves.

  • Yay more lovely print. Sorry, I’m being a bit cheeky I know, as many other readers seem averse to print. I’m a big print fan. I never knew others didn’t really like it so much, until recently. Well waddaya know! I’m not great at mixing prints, but admire others’ capacities to do that. I wear my printed clothing with solids ie a print silk dress and solid jacket or cardigan. Thanks again for showing a lovely printed dress Preston.

  • This looks modern and pretty. If it’s the right material I think it wild make an excellent dress for work.
