Trend Report: Botanical & Photographic Prints
Spring has come early with this year’s most feminine trend, botanical and life like photographic prints that have taken a much more modern turn with unique colourways and vibrant colour contrasts.
When teamed with PU binding, paneling and contrast splicing you can add this chic and totally cool style to spice up your winter wardrobe and transition you seamlessly into spring.
From jungle inspired plants to exotic flowers and tropical varieties, maxi dresses, printed pants and jacket for women are worked into vibrant hues or teamed with printing mimicking real life shades of greenery.
Resort 2015 has seen high fashion brands like Stella McCartney and Gucci who picked dark night inspired botanicals for an edgier take on the feminine print showcasing sharp and bold life like prints contrasted against softer feminine variations. Similarly brands like SASS and FATE have centered a large part of their Spring 2014 collection around the trend, working photographic and botanical prints into spliced blouses, relaxed pants and structured blazers.
Photographic prints consisting of still life rivers or close ups of florals and greenery is a stylish way to integrate a unique touch to your style and looks fabulous when teamed with neutrals, blacks and crisp whites for the ultimate contrast.
Transition this print trend to the office with relaxed printed pants or a structured blazer, teamed with a pussy-tie blouse and heels. Wear a botanical or photographic printed skirt with black wedges and a black cami with chunky silver or gold accessories for date night.
Dress up darker prints with contrast bold shades of cobalt blues, orange and red and tone down with neutral accessories like black or nude heels for a statement look or stick to one printed piece and neutral accessories for a minimalist style.
Add a masculine edge by rocking with boyfriend jeans or a long line relaxed blazer and a tailored bowler bag or office tote.
