SS '12 Trends: Prints

As always the fashion shows and catwalks have provided us with incredible inspirations and designs for what we will be wearing in the coming months. With numerous iconic shows and sets, including Louis Vuitton's Merry-Go-Round and Burberry's Hyde Park show, the Spring/Summer '12 line-up did not disappoint.



There are so many different prints to choose from nowadays. From spots to stripes, florals to flamingos, they come in all shapes and sizes and are a hot trend for the coming season. Seen on a lot of runways it seems prints will be injecting some fun and frolics into the wardrobes of the fashionable for the coming months.

One print that seemed to crop up at the Spring/Summer '12 shows is the geometric print, with bold lines and a clean aesthetic. Topshop Unique displayed this at their LFW show with absract knitted jumpers and dresses. Holly Fulton was another designer who embraced the geometric designs and prints and her bold designs were a stand-out on the SS catwalks this year. The accessories from Next this season are embracing this trend and make it easy to add a fashion-forward edge to an otherwise simple outfit. The black and white cuff or the Geo Super Wedge Sandals (pictured below) will instantly boost your fashion points.

As a slightly more subtle way to embrace the geometric trend, you could try Next's tapered trousers, featured below, which have a gorgeous, soft check print which would look fabulous with a bright, floaty shirt or a soft, slouchy jumper and strong, gold accessories.

Mary Katrantzou has also been making head-waves into the print trend, with many of her pieces featuring multiple prints on one piece (such as the dress above). Next's Scarf Print Shirt (featured in the March edition of British Elle magazine) is a sure-fire way to tap into this trend and would look effortlessly stylish paired with some simple trousers or a dark-wash jean. At just £30 it's a no-brainer to achieve the designer look without the designer price tag. 


Prints @Next
Let me know if you will be incorporating prints into your wardrobe this season. I definitely have my eye on the print shirt from Next - it's such a statement piece and a real talking point!

Hope you're having a delightful day!
