Nothing marks the start of Summer, like arrival of florals and prints in as many variations as imaginable.

Floral and print is nothing new in terms of a Summer trend, but the choices this season seem endless; monochrome and slick, pastel and pretty or electric and hyper realistic, take your pick!

Matthew Williamson, king of print and color, filled silk chiffon with hand drawn flowers, dancing dragonflies and geometric prints, while other brands  such as Maison Scotch and Milly used playful tribal patterns or abstract motifs in muted colors for an easy everyday option. A swirling gown of silk chiffon or just a crop top or scarf; adding a pop of print can make a grand statement.

Prints are an easy way to add depth, flair and a sense of playfulness to any occasion. Which ever way you choose to wear them; garden party, black tie with a twist or  lounging at the beach, have fun playing with this season’s prints!
