Here’s what she thinks about the Spring/Summer 2012 trend, the printed dresses! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Thank you Sarah : )
Prints were seen all over the Spring/Summer catwalks and from the loud to the understated there’s something to suit everyone. A simple, effortless way to wear this trend is with Asos dresses. Introduce a bit of fun and color back into your wardrobes with these top three prints:
Inspired by Prada’s cartoon Cadillac print dresses, novelty prints are a huge hit this season. Favorites are fruit and tropical prints in vibrant, rainbow bright shades. For a more understated take on this trend, opt for navy or black with a small repeat pattern such as this pineapple print dress from Whistles. If you’re feeling brave, look out for eye-catching cartoon prints on t-shirt dresses.
This season there’s a floral print to suit every personality. Girly girls can choose between ditzy floral print and bold florals in pastel hues. Or for an edgier vibe, look for digital printed body con dresses in darker, more vibrant colors. Hot dress shapes of the season are the skater style, such as this girly number from ASOS, and the body con midi dress. Just remember to wear minimal accessories and let the dress do the talking.
This is a style classic, but this season animal print has a fresh new twist. For a subtle look stick to traditional leopard print in browns or greys. But if you’re looking for a more fashion forward look, designers mixed it up a bit this season by introducing big cat spots, zebra print and eye-popping color. Opt for the on-trend color of the season with this blue body con dress from ASOS, or try neon and even monochrome. Any color goes as long as it’s head turning.
So these are the top three prints for this season, which one will you be wearing?
