Anna Sui, designer, is known for her beautiful prints. She suggests avoiding geometric prints in form fitting pieces and choosing looser shift styles in dresses and blouses. She also feels that a dark background like navy or black make geometric prints more flattering. Bold geometric prints might be easier to wear on top instead of on skirts or dresses. When wearing print pants you can wear a dark top, like a tunic, that covers up your behind and hips.
