Trend Alert! Clash of the Prints!

This season I’ve been reliably informed it’s all about clashing prints, the more outrageous the colours and designs, the better. For instance, you could take a pair of aztec printed leggings and team them up with a floral blouse, or suit together a coloured leopard mini dress with a pair of skinny striped contrasting jeans.

Sounds horrific? I think that’s the point. Catwalks from Milan to Paris are chock full at the moment of designers playing around with statement pieces and literally throwing away the rule book to create a totally new look. And if you don’t feel quite brave enough to follow or lead this new trend, then how about making up your own take on the new look by using accessories instead?

You can always match (or miss-match) a funky printed dress with a contrasting handbag or scarf? Try taking a flower printed dress and accessorising it with a striped or animal print bag, or wrapping a geometric scarf around a dotty or floral top or playsuit? The combinations are literally endless! And what a way to revamp your wardrobe at the same time! Have a look at what items we’ve picked out to start off your print clashing frenzy:
