As the summer season approaches (hopefully), you’ll find that there’s no swifter way to deliver instant warm-weather impact to your looks than adding prints. But rather than a little sliver of fun, right now it’s all about embracing the loud and wearing it abundantly head to toe.

3 WAYS TO WEAR HEAD-TO-TOE PRINTS

Clash of the titans
When you can’t decide on just one print? Throw out the rulebook and embrace the chaos. For your centerpiece, a co-ord that not only ranks high on the summery silhouette (a bandeau and straight-leg jean combo) but also the bright ceramic-style pattern. Here, it’s as much about the accessories as it is the main event: clash up the denim with a loud leopard-print shirt, tied across the body for true festival vibes. Then, a headscarf to dress up your ponytail (in retro polka dots, no less) and pearl-embellished sliders to finish with a fancy texture.

Color-phobe? Here’s your friendly reminder that just because you’re going printed doesn’t mean it has to be bright. The same impact can be achieved through subtle means, just like this newspaper-print midi shirt dress from Stüssy. The teensy all-over logo is a welcome twist on spring prints, while a brown geometric belt with gold hardware will break up the longline monochrome get-up. White technical sneaks carry on the fresh color palette, and, for a jolt of color, some rose-tinted perspex sunnies.
And what would spring prints be without some obligatory florals? But we don’t mind dipping into clichés for this ankle-grazing dress in silky baby-blues and blush tones. The perfect number to rock all your fancy warm-weather RSVPs this season, the flattering wrap shape, relaxed sleeves and fabric button detailing give it a truly $$$ feel. To finish, add red-hot vinyl bow heels to give a dash of edgy appeal to all this outfit prettiness. Win-win.
