Prints have the power to make the person wearing them the centre of attention, as their eye-catching nature compels the bypassers to stop and look. No wonder that object prints are also called conversational, as they impel people to talk about them.
The variety of conversational textile designs is endless and the same motif done differently may have a diverse effect: from playful and whimsical, lively styles that uplift your mood and the mood of others, to those of more elegant and sophisticated quality, appropriate for office dress-code and cocktail hour.
With summer just around the corner see how you can work a little object print into your wardrobe.
Feminine charm is so perfectly encapsulated in a work-fitting combination of a blouse and a midi skirt. Try adding a contrasting geometric print to the equation. Don’t forget the accents, a little detail like a brooch chosen correctly will only enhance the composition.
Pyjama dressing trend of 2016 is evolving. Split your matchy-matchy sets and wear them with other separates. This soft silk blazer, complete with relaxed trousers, backless loafers and a headband for a true vintage flair will provide a chic daytime alternative to casual denim ensembles.
50s Riviera fashion is extra ladylike and graceful. Opt for lush summery prints on your focal piece – the dress. Accessorise with a straw boater, cat-eye shades and a pair of comfortable yet stylish wedges.
Object print on a pair of light summer pants is both cheerful and travel appropriate. Just add all the usual suspects of this spring-summer season: bare shoulders, ruffles, statement sunglasses, and quirky accents like a fish-shaped clutch bag.
