The ocean has served as quite the inspiration for our founder Ala’s art. Making for stunning prints, these paintings have found their way onto AvA fabrics. The finished products have graced the closets of women all over the world. To celebrate these prints and their muse, the ocean, we rounded up a few of our favorite ocean themed prints and how to style them.

Ocean Brush

Differing hues of blue come together to make this print a spectacular one. When paired with our translucent mesh styles like the Rachel Sheer Mesh Poncho the look becomes an elegant masterpiece. We love color blocking this print with light lilacs and rosy peach accessories. Think a lilac baguette bag and pale purple floral earrings or bright rosy peach sandals and a pop of pink bangles.


The bright blues and creamy white brush strokes bring new life to the frothy waves of the ocean. We’re opting for the Aia Mesh Turtleneck worn over our Elaine Stretch Knit Pants in Ocean Brush. The two prints were made for each other, each uniquely their own but when overlapped they transform into an even bolder and brighter look.

Blue Coral

This bold yet tasteful print pulls inspiration from the bright blue coral of the sea. Just as the corals wave back and forth with the tides so does the print as the breeze catches the light as air fabric. The Diane Sheer Mesh Top is a great introduction to the print allowing you to pair it over a Caterina Stretch Knit Tank Top or with your favorite pair of jeans. Opt for the blue accessories this time, oversized earrings, a blue handbag, and a blue pair of heels. Match the whole look in one shade of blue or have some fun and mix up the ensemble with varying shades.

Live Coral

It wouldn’t be AvA if we just stayed in the blue family, our Live Coral print brings a delicious purple accent. Like the corals in the sea, the colors are vibrant and varying. The blues are bright but also muted and the purples are clear but also deep, making for a one-of-a-kind print that’s sure to rake in the compliments. An instant boost of confidence, the Loren Sheer Mesh Wrap Dress is flattering on every body shape. It snitches in the waist, offers sultry sheer coverage, and can be dressed down or up.
