What is your go to look for the summer? Summer for me is all about prints, be it stripes, checks or florals. Every year these are constantly on rotation, but it’s the different interpretations/takes on them that makes me sit up and take notice, year after year after year.
Last summer, it was all about the tie-dye. During summer 2020, at home tie-dye kits sold like hot cakes as people looked to busy themselves during lockdown. Whilst this Spring we have seen checkerboard patterns making a come back.
In my latest video above, I show you some of the prints that are out right now, but before you head off and watch here let me get you up to speed on other prints you may be seeing when you are out and about.
Summer Florals as always are in this time of year, but this summer we are going back to the late 60s and ’70s for a more retro feel, across everything from crop tops, capris to miniskirts, short shorts, sundresses, and even bikinis. So whilst we might not be taking a trip abroad we are very much dreaming of being somewhere else with this pattern.
Summer Gingham isn’t ground breaking as every year this print rolls back around. However because it does just that, it is worth the investment as you will continue to wear it for so many summers to come. This year what makes it super cool is that bold colours of green have been introduced with this pattern along with checked jumpsuits that makes it such fun to wear this time of year.
Brush Strokes Simply put is like going back in time to art class at school where you can just throw paint on paper. The difference here is the prints on these dresses and tops are so pretty, with muted tones for those who don’t do too bright, that I’m sure you’ll find a pattern that will work for you.
Psychedelic Swirls – So last year was tie dye this year its about the marble print and these playful, groovy patterns are a great way to inject some colour into your wardrobe. Also a perfect time if you are brave enough to mix and match them with other prints.
Checks – Slightly bigger than the gingham, they were introduced at the tail end of 2020. But from this Spring monochromatic options have now given way to brighter interpretations of this popular pattern.
Tip of the day: Summer is definitely about adding colour and patterns are a great way of experimenting and finding the right pattern that suits you, so don’t be afraid to try.
