IF nude hues are the fashion equivalent of a wallflower then bold prints are this season’s attention seeker.
Forget the megaphone if you want to scream and shout about your style, in fact you don’t have to utter a word because this season’s prints will do all the talking.
Celebrities like Kate Bosworth, Keira Knightley and Naomi Campbell have all recently brightened up the red carpet with uber-bold frocks.
Packing a double punch with loud patterns and bright colours, prints are this season’s crazy antidote to the calm sea of pretty pastels and non-offensive neutrals.
Designers dazzled the front rows at Fashion Week with eye-popping creations that virtually required 3D glasses to fully appreciate the special effects.
From bold geometrics to jazzy watercolours and animal prints, pick your print and cause a stir this summer.
Suppress that inner wallflower and indulge the exhibitionist in you with look-at-me prints.
For looks on the high street try Monsoon’s Bolivia maxi print dress, £160; Matalan Et Vous embellished maxi dress, £30 or F&F Couture at Tesco acid print silk jumpsuit, £80.
Ce Me London also has a figure-hugging Milan print dress for £30. Mix it up with oli Fusion by Olivia Rubin who has produced a mixed print dress for £100. If you prefer prints on pants then check out zebra print harem trousers from Wallis £35 or ASOS harem print trousers £40.
If it’s all too much for you then update your look with subtle flashes of prints by experimenting with accessories like shoes or bags to add some non-committal colour to your ensemble.
Print scarves like the bright Louis Vuitton numbers are a celebrity favourite for adding a feature to your look in an instant.
