This season, banish thoughts of overly fussy prints and patterns. For SS18, classic prints get a modern makeover in minimal monochrome. Read on for our roundup of the season’s top three.
Delicate brushstrokes are a key summer print this season. Intricate print breaks up the white background of the Summer Scribble print, adding an eye-catching finish to classic shapes. Wear the shirt dress with a flat sandal for easy daywear. Try the jumpsuit for an alternative formalwear option, the elegant neckline make it a great choice for summer weddings, just add eye catching jewellery and a heel.
Prefer separates? The fuss-free shape of the summer scribble top means the styling opportunities are endless. Pair with a slim fit black trouser for sleek smart-casual attire, or tuck into culottes for a more casual look.
Striped basics are a casualwear staple. This season add a point of difference to Breton classics by choosing pieces with interesting finishing touches. The Tessa Tie dress boasts a versatile midi length, comfortable stretch fabric, and flattering tie waist, making it the perfect weekend option. An essential piece of your holiday wardrobe, it lends itself to casual days in warm climates; finish with a simple slide and elegant tote bag.
Alternatively, nod to the monochrome colour trend via separates. The tie front top will quickly become a go-to piece. Jeans are a perennially fail-safe pairing, or for a lighter look try wearing with a cream pencil skirt.
The bold monochrome print of the Ink Wash print creates a striking impression. Large, brushstroke-like graphics stretch across the fabric, accentuated by movement. The 70s inspired halter maxi dress is cinched at the waist for a sleek silhouette that lets the print take centre stage. Simple styling is key, keep accessories neutral so as not to look overdone.
For a more relaxed take on the print, the kimono dress is an easy choice. It works perfectly as a beach cover-up; the loose silhouette and fluted sleeves offer enough coverage to take you seamlessly from poolside to beach bar (cocktail optional).
