Sunny days, refreshing cocktails, beach fun and lots of parties are some of the things that pop to mind when we think about summer, and they all scream colour. Vibrancy is all this summer is about as well, and it has also reflected on summer fashion collections. We’ve been seeing a plethora of prints and patterns just waiting for us to flaunt them and start radiating beauty and style. From florals and animalistic prints to tie-dye and fruity prints, you’ll love the following suggestions and learn exactly how to wear them so you don’t look too kitschy.
Fruits and veggies galore
Oranges, pineapples, tomatoes, avocadoes and cherries are just some of the many fruits that you can see on t-shirts, skirts, dresses and jumpsuits. These can look very loud on their own, which is why you should definitely not match them with other prints or patterns. Sticking to neutral footwear and toning down the entire outfit with simple accessories is the best way to wear this stunning summer pattern if you opt for the fruit-on-fruit ensemble. If, on the other hand, you don't want to put a tropical print front and centre, consider wearing a solid colour dress or a jumpsuit and top it off with a whimsical kimono or lightweight jacket in fruity print.
Tie-dye for a whimsical ensemble
Australian women are known for their simple yet effective styling, which is why they like to mix in some prints and patterns even during summer months. Stunning dresses with bold prints such as tie-dye are some of their favourite choices, especially the ones originating from latest women’s luxury fashion in Melbourne created by brands such as Mastani. A light blue dress with reddish hues will look stunning if paired up with white footwear, such as leather mules, or flat sandals. A lemon zesty tie-dye t-shirt tucked in a high-waisted pair of jeans and matched with patent pumps will give you an edgy look that will certainly turn heads.
Animal prints take centre stage
Whether you pick tiger stripes, leopard spots, snake or cow skin, animalistic prints will put you under the spotlight. From dresses to skirts, jackets, blouses and even swimwear, animalistic prints are one of the most popular choices this summer and can actually work great when mixed or when worn on their own. For example, a python dress will look fabulous if matched with a zebra bag and simple black sandals. On the other hand, feel free to embrace the prints from head to toe and match a cheetah-printed dress with python ballerina flats, or even mix together stripes of different shapes, colours and sizes.
Bring in liveliness with florals
This summer is all about happy colourful prints, such as florals. Go for the ones that are smaller, pastel-hued and less bold if you’d like a not-so-loud outfit to wear at the office. Top your floral jumpsuit with a solid coloured blazer, a pair of nude sandals and a bag to match. If, on the other hand, you’d like to embrace the summery vibe and dress like you’re about to hop on a plane to Maui, put on a lime green print shirt with bold floral print, match it with a pair of white trousers and a pair of white espadrilles. A pair of exotic linen trousers with floral prints will go perfectly with a neutral top and shoes to keep the attention solely on the pants.
Summer has never been more fun than with these vibrant prints. Therefore, if you’d like to rock them like a true fashion icon, consider some of the previously mentioned tips. From fruits and veggies to animal prints, tie-dye and florals, whichever you choose to wear, as long as you style them according to our tips, your summer ensembles will look flawless, leaving everyone in awe.
