I wear prints, never the crazy ones, but I like florals( mostly roses), stripes, I also own 1 tiger print Calvin Kline top and 1 polka dot top.

I have two print dresses and several subtle print jackets but I'm trying to donate my print tops. In the last couple of months I have once again started wearing scarves under my jackets (primarily denim).  I bought probably 15 silk scarves from EBay (from $3 to $9 including shipping).  This is my Fall/Winter look for this season and beyond.

Rarely wear prints.  Have a print shirt that looks more like a jacket. Linen and silk, black, with 1-inch (more or less) red/gold (foil) hieroglyphics

Tansy, have you seen Susan Graver's TSV from Nov.3rd ? That is what is wrong with prints.

Prints are VERY tricky ... they can make a woman look much larger than she actually is.   Have you ever seen a woman wearing a loud print and realize she isn't wearing the outfit ... the outfit is wearing her?  That's what's wrong with a lot of prints.  JMO

Absolutely nothing! Rock them if you love them! It's all about personal preference.

I find in my own closet if it's not a plaid or stripe it still has a vertical or horizontal placement to it

I wear prints. They cheer me up and I enjoy them. I do stick to very subtle prints. I still remember the movie "Now Voyager" when Bette Davis was first shown in the movie and she was wearing a very small print...it aged her and spoke to the fact that you need to be careful in the placement. However, a good designer usually gets it right and I tend to stick to certain ones.

Yes, some.  I like painterly, camo, and animal prints.  Not too big or bold.    Most are in tops, a few ln pants.
