This season we’re going crazy for prints and anything goes, from ditzy floral to novelty cartoon prints. An effortless way to nail this vintage inspired trend is with dresses. To create a more quirky, individual look wear vintage dresses with modern, on-trend accessories.
Here’s a look at the top prints for spring/summer:
Have fun with floral prints this season, there’s one to suit us all. For something girly opt for ditzy floral printed tea dresses or bold, vibrant fuchsia. On-trend dresses of the season include the skater dress and 50s shapes, both accentuating our curves by cinching in the waist. Accessorize with chunky jewellery to add a tougher edge, or keep it simple and leave the jewellery at home. Floral dresses can be worn in so many different ways, so put your own stamp on it.
A great on-trend alternative to floral print is paisley. This was all over the catwalks at Stella McCartney and Emilio Pucci amongst many others and it’s the perfect print for vintage finds. Popular in the 70s, you’ll be able to pick up any number of vintage dresses, particularly the maxi dress which looks great accessorised with leather gladiator sandals and big jewellery. A must-have for any summer wardrobe.
This trend has undoubtedly been inspired by Prada’s cartoon Cadillac prints, making novelty prints a huge hit this season. Look for everything from tropical fruit to cute animals. This isn’t the print for you if you want to blend in with the crowd. Look for vintage dresses from the 70s and 80s for the most fun, eye catching novelty prints. It’s definitely best to keep accessories to a minimum with this look.
