In the latest installment of “everything old is new again” comes the ultra feminine pattern that dominated the ’90s: the butterfly print. Any grunge-era girl worth her salt owned something with the fluttery fauna back in the day, and with retro redux reaching fever pitch right now, it’s no surprise the trend has made a comeback. Even Margot Robbie, currently making the awards season rounds for her portrayal of ‘90s antihero Tonya Harding, rocked the revival in a vintage 1995 Versace butterfly-print gown at the Goodbye Christopher Robin screening. Suffice it to say, you’re going to want to get in on the fluttery fashion action. Ahead, nine modern ways to shop the butterfly (print) effect.
1. Mango Butterfly Print Dress ($40): Wear this fun frock with over-the-knee boots and a blazer now, then swap in sandals when the weather warms up.
2. Oasis Butterfly Flute Sleeve Top ($58): Maybe it is easy being green, after all. Mix flora and fauna for a garden party take on the trend that’s office-appropriate too.
3. Zara Butterfly Crossbody Bag ($40): Bag the trend, literally. This crossbody will make a playfully cool addition to any outfit.
5. Nordstrom Print Silk Scarf ($35): Go pretty in pink with a scarf you can wear around your neck, on your bag strap, or in your hair. A girl’s gotta have options.
6. Henri Bendel Butterfly Printed Bag Strap ($88): Not ready to commit? This removable strap lets you test out the trend on your old standby fave bag(s).
7. Joie Peterson Butterfly Blouse ($258): Meet your new favorite work blouse. Who says nine-to-five clothes can’t be trendy?
8. Ted Baker London Bethzy Butterfly Printed Makeup Bag ($23): With transparent plastic at the top of the spring 2018 trend list, you can score two must-haves in one here. You may even want to carry it as a clutch!
9. Modcloth Work Button-Up Shirt Dress in Butterflies ($45): Ground the airborne animalia print in classic stripes for the perfect, polished balance.
