I’ve always been a big fan of prints. Whether it’s floral, geometric, abstract or conversational. Now you’re probably wondering what a “conversational” print is… I bet you’ve worn them more than you would think. By definition, conversational prints are classified as any print with a recognizable picture in it, such as cats, birds, stars or even pies! It can be anything. In the case of the Bow Sleeve Dress I designed for my LC Lauren Conrad line, I went with butterflies!

Butterflies and birds are a common theme in my newest collection. When put in print, they feel soft but still fun and flirty.

The dress is an update to one of my favorite tops we did a few seasons ago for my LC Lauren Conrad collection with Kohl’s. I’m especially fond of the Bow Sleeve Dress because I love the tiny slits and bow detailing along the sleeves. As most of you know, I have a minor obsession with bows… Aside from the bow-factor, I like the black and white. Since most of the prints in the collection are softer, I felt black and white made the most sense for the stronger butterfly print. The bold contrasting color scheme works because it’s tempered by the feminine shape and bow details.


To be honest, I can’t stop wearing this dress. The nice thing about it is that it doesn’t require a lot of thought. You can just throw it on and the styling possibilities are endless. Because it’s black and white, you can wear it with a pop color shoe, or you can opt for something more neutral. It also looks great alone, with a cardigan or even smart blazer. As far as accessories, I think that when you have a lot of embellishment–whether it’s a bow, a rosette, or sequins–you should keep your trimmings simple. In this case, I prefer to let the conversational print of the dress do the talking (no pun intended)!
