Prints Trends for Spring

When it comes to summer, it is almost impossible not to see any floral prints. This is a trend that seems to make a comeback each year. All of the major designers managed to incorporate the prints into their collections, and one of the most interesting ones were present in the collection of Carolina Herrera, because they were based on the floral prints. Some other collections to consider include the ones of Iceberg, Alberta Ferretti, Proenza Schouler, Kevork Kiledjian, Mary Katrantzou and Blumarine.

Nature

Although you may say that the flower prints also are part of the nature prints, still these refer more to the other elements of nature, such as trees, leaves, sea and sun. The animal prints also belong among the nature prints and it looks like the hottest ones of this kind include leopard, zebra and snakeskin but we can also see prints of birds, tigers, lizards, cats and sea creatures.

If you find these prints tempting, make sure to take a look at the collections of Versace, Dsquared2 and Mary Katrantzou.

Ethnic prints

These prints are just perfect for the women who don’t mind people staring at their outfit. There are a lot of women who like these, but only a few are brave enough to pull them off. Are you one of them? Consider the collections of Etro and Just Cavalli.

The daring fashionistas just love these prints because they make them stand out in a crowd. You have the option to have only one item with these prints or to have an entire outfit covered with them. The trend has been the main focus of the collections of Roccobarocco, Matthew Williamson, Julien Mcdonald and Emilio Pucci.

Stripes

Don’t think about the retro stripes. The ones we are referring to are more than modern and they are just perfect if you are working at an office. You have the option to choose from horizontal, vertical and diagonal stripes. Try to make the best of the collections of Vivienne Westwood, Daks and Fendi.

Geometrical prints

The stripes aren’t the only hot trend this season, but also think about the other geometrical prints. The best thing about them is that they come in numerous different variations, including zigzags, dots, checks, triangles and others. Consider the collections of Holly Fulton, Etro and Bottega Veneta.

Combined prints

If you just don’t seem to be able to make up your mind, here is a great option for you: combined prints. During this season, you can see flower prints matched with checks, geometrical prints with leopard and the hearts are also matched with kaleidoscopic prints. Look for the collections of D&G, Preen and Michael van der Ham to find the best pieces that the market has.
