There seems to be a novelty print love resurgence happening right now, and rightly so! I started getting into them..... well, when I realized they existed about a year ago, and I've been hooked ever since!
I love novelty prints because they're such an easy way to mix vintage with almost anything else you love, as long as there's a novelty print ever been made of it. For example, I, of course, love Egypt because I lived there. Which means I adore this hieroglyphic 40s dress for sale right now:
However, there are lots of options! This dress would be fabulous for the lady who loves to cook (or, heck, eat!):
Or someone looking to stereotypically celebrate their Dutch heritage (I love this one, I won't lie!):
Perhaps you are a princessy type. Express that with a royally themed skirt:
Did you grow up doing ballet and still love it? This skirt would be an excellent choice for wearing to a ballet one night:
Some people just love games. If you are a fan of board games, card games, etc., you can reflect that in a novelty print. Maybe you're even a poker champ, in which case you should definitely wear this skirt to your next tournament:
And music! There are so many novelty prints devoted to the wonderful thing, like this amazing blouse:
Basically, what I'm saying is: don't just buy any random novelty print just because it's a vintage fad. Buy the prints that you truly love and express yourself with them! You have the ability to visibly demonstrate something about yourself in a way that nothing but a novelty print can really offer. (Who says, "Wow, she must love music, look at the shape of that skirt!" No one.) Use this to express what is unique about you!
If you could find/have any novelty print in the whole world, what would it be and why?
