Shop the Trend: Blue China Print

My obsession with blue china prints started in childhood. My favorite book was Blue Willow and I had several blue china patterns in my bedroom. My love for this pattern was reignited recently when Kate Middleton wore a long-sleeve dress in a gorgeous blue and white floral pattern in Australia (see the photos on Vanity Fair’s website here). I’ve rounded up 19 equally pretty blue china-type pieces and all but two are under $100! Click through to shop!

    There are so many blue and white patterns out there to love, and these dresses are more of a traditional, muted way of doing a blue china print. From a dress with sleeves for a more formal event, to spaghetti straps for a backyard BBQ.

    If a dress feels like too much blue and white print, try an accessory first (or a skirt thrown in for good measure!). The blooms on this bag are perfectly spring and these shoes make a china print statement without overdoing it.
