Trendspotting: Optical Prints

Do not adjust your computer screen! Those eye-popping, mind-altering optical art prints (aka Op Art) strutting down the runway are just as they should be:

It’s a heady mix and takes a brave soul to try to pull off this look, but eye-popping prints are hitting the streets.  Be bold and embrace the trend!

Just be sure to keep all other elements of your outfit simple so as not to overwhelm - simple black pumps are all you need to make it work.

Here are some similar styles so that you can make this look your own:
