Prints are back this summer; in fact they've become a catwalk collection staple. Not only are we embracing the classic animal/tribal print but we also love floral print, bold prints and bird prints. With a broad choice in motifs and colours, it's up to you how far you take the trend. Go for this look in various accessories, or as a key piece in a pair of trousers, jeans (I love printed skinny jeans) or a top, or wear the whole look in a dress.
Printed jeans and trousers are hot right now. There is a massive choice available including ranges by Current Elliot, J Brand, Paige and Citizens of Humanity. From Grey Leopard Skinny Jeans to Mini Floral Crop Heaven, Skinny Cherry Print to Multi Arrow or Blue Leaf Meadow, whatever your mood, there are jeans that will match it. If you want to be smarter than denim, try Goldsign Vivien Flare jeans in Regal. These are silk palazzo pants in an eye-catching paisley print and they look stunning teamed with a gold or bold blue silk top. The look is so simple yet elegant.
If you want to go full-on prints in a dress, take a look at Stella McCartney’s bold Hawaiian print denim shift dress. This beautiful dress is a classic fit with a modern print and a Japanese cut. The dress can easily be dressed up or down with the right shoes and accessories so that it will work on holiday, at a party, at work or at a wedding. A key piece that will see you through many a summer event!
Printed tops are a more understated way to display the print trend. Worn well over this season’s other key trend, the pastel and bold coloured jeans, print tops and blouses are a brilliant summer look. Anna Sui has some stunning tunic tops and Tucker offer gorgeous floral and butterfly blouses. L’Agence have some beautiful geo print and scarf print blouses that work perfectly teamed with some smart office trousers, and they are elegant enough to wear after work for a refreshing summer drink!
