4 Summer Prints to Fall in Love With

Let’s face it, it’s been a hit-and-miss summer so far. Thankfully, the weather is heating up so we can finally make the most of our favourite summer 2021 trends, and this week our focus is firmly on prints. The perfect way to boost your staples or make a statement on a big night out, it’s time for feel-good fashion that lets your personality shine through.

​​​​​​​Whether you’re a shorts-and-a-nice-top kind of dresser or you’re looking for THAT perfect dress, you’ll find everything your post-lockdown heart desires with these warm-weather must haves. From subtle to statement, we’ve got the perfect summer prints right here. Welcome to your new wish list.

1. Summer In Bloom 

We know what you’re thinking. Florals for summer? Groundbreaking… But this season, the focus is firmly on colour. Soft tones with bold prints in bright hues, ditsy florals, and feminine silhouettes are top of our wish list – and would even make Miranda Priestly proud.

Think ruched blouses paired with your favourite denim, printed skirts with casual tees and head-turning dresses that take all the work out of planning your outfit.

​​​​​​​ The perfect antidote to loungewear, these pretty prints were made to spark joy.

2. The Right Stripes

If prints take you out of your comfort zone, there’s a subtle way to work the trend: that perennial style favourite, stripes.

We all own a nautical stripe or two, but for summer we’re mixing things up with ice cream shades, cool neutrals and chunky stripes. 

​​​​​​For easy styling, opt for a dress in contrasting stripes. For off-duty days, a sporty rugby top can’t be beaten, while an oversized shirt looks great paired with denim shorts or as a beach cover-up.

3. Picnic Perfect

Nothing says summer quite like gingham. It’s the print that was made for beach picnics and laid-back days in the park, all with a G&T in hand, of course.

Loved by everyone from Kendall to Taylor, it’s impossible to get wrong, working with everything from denim to white trainers and chunky gold jewellery.

​​​​​​​Cheerful and flirty, we’ll be wearing the print on relaxed midis, cute camis and playful minis as the perfect way to reflect our sunshine mood.

4. On The Dot

Spots and polka dots are the perfect playful, retro prints. They’re polished enough for a summer event but relaxed enough for an evening out with your mates.

We’re talking abstract, irregular, maxi and micro prints across tiered midi skirts, cropped jumpsuits and the sweetest mini dresses around.

​​​​​​​Perfect for a smouldering summer selfie with a pair of statement shades, this iconic print is one to wear on repeat.
