A closer look: Tutti Frutti

Tutti FruttiThis new Summer color is extra special as part of Vera Bradley Baby (available tomorrow). Soothing hues make for a versatile offering that looks beautiful on ladies of every age. Liz shares the story of how Tutti Frutti came to be, and a few tips for wearing it well.

What inspired it …

Anticipating the arrival of Baby, we knew we wanted to incorporate pastel paisleys, simple florals, lacy scalloped edges and soft vintage tones. A combination of pretty pinks, teal and citrus hues on the mint green background lend a perfectly retro flavor.  Don’t worry, this confectionary treat is calorie free.

Tutti Frutti

How to wear it …

Mint green is so new for summer and it looks great in just about anything: swimwear, sheer tops, denim. Adding wardrobe pieces with a dash of pink and some spicier tones will help you carry this pattern right into fall.

Summer 2013 arrives online and in stores Thursday, March 21.

    I absolutely love this print! Will it be available for non-baby items? I’m a college student and I absolutely love mint, and to incorperate it with Vera Bradley is sheer bliss. Please please make this available for non-baby items!

      From the catalog it looks like you will be able to get the standard VB stuff (totes, handbags, etc) in Tutti Frutti. Oddly, I remember Tutti Frutti ice cream being pink, not mint green.
