Printed dresses and why everyone is wearing them this spring
Print, prints, prints! Prints are always in style but for Spring Summer 17, it’s one of the biggest trends of the season. Ranging from geometric and abstract prints to stripes and polka dots to florals and animal prints, there’s something for everyone. And because nothing says spring like a pretty little dress, it’s no wonder why we’re seeing so many printed dresses around lately! Everyone’s obsessed (including us) and here we tell you exactly why.
1. It adds interest and personality
A printed dress (and prints in general) is a great way to express your individuality and add a visual interest to an otherwise simple outfit. From hearts and stars to cats and birds, whatever your mood is, put it in print! Even if you’re not big on bold prints, you can still spice up your look with miniature prints or keep it classic with checks and stripes.
2. It makes the whole outfit
Whereas mix and matching prints can be tricky, a printed dress is a less risky option that everyone can easily pull off. Plus, unless you’re going for a statement look, there’s no need for extra bling – the printed dress is a true style hero. Just throw it on and voilà, you’re ready to go!
3. It works for work (and for after-work drinks too)
If you’re working in an office environment, look no further than the printed shirt dress. Classic, polished AND on-trend, the shirt dress is the perfect way to make an impact in front of your colleagues without going overboard. To keep the look professional, simply make sure the base colour of the dress is neutral (white, black or navy) and pair back with minimal heels.
4. It can be effortlessly dressed up or down
The best feature of the printed dress? It’s versatility. Pick the right accessories and it will seamlessly transition from a casual to a smart look. Style your printed dress with high heels and an embellished clutch for a chic evening ensemble or pair it with strappy sandals and a cross-body bag for an elegant daytime outfit. To give it a bit more edge, cover up with a leather jacket once the sun has set.
