Give your wardrobe a jolt of excitement with a mood-boosting summer print …
Nothing spells summer like a mood-boosting, bright print. Whether it’s simple florals, vivid polka dots or eclectic bohemian patterns, there’s one to suit everyone, depending on your look – and your frame of mind. Summer’s outlook on all things printed has been fairly fail-safe: we’re leaning into old reliables that pair with existing wardrobe staples. You can’t beat a ditzy floral dress and espadrille combo, in our opinion. Hint: if prints scare you, stick to the classic ones (stripes, floral, and polka dots all spring to mind here), choose a palette with just one or two colours and keep the rest of your look neutral, for balance.
