It's time to convert to prints. If up until now you swore you would never own a printed dress, think twice: you have no fashion choice.
This Spring take a walk on the print side. You don't need to turn your wardrobe into a gypsy festivity but you must own at least one of item with a print if you don't want to look washed out and so 90s next to your girlfriends.
Gone are the days of economy: we celebrate everything that is precious to welcome Spring with a full happy moodboard.
Flowers are the must-have print of the season, no doubt about that. The trick is to mix&match either with other flowers, colours, fabrics and statement accessories. The feminine side of your personality is about to flourish. Nonetheless, an edgy allure is recommended. Pointer: dramatic make-up and big flowers.
A floral turn for the maxi-dresses that play hide and seek. Gorgeous tropical colours and light precious fabrics. The overall effect is ever-flowing an extremely silhouette flattering. Pointer: choose the cleavage version if you are petite and leave the full-bloom ones to more statuesque figures.
Exotic prints scream jungle. Take a walk on the wild side with the glorious and lush prints. Recommended for mini-dresses in all shapes and cuts. From tropical fruits to African traditional prints, you can pick your own moment of adventurous travel. Pointer: wear it with very simple straight hair.
Stripes are not just for sailors: it's time to play. Stripes change and go optical, mix&match vertical against horizontal, combine different colours and shapes. Sharp tailoring cuts are needed. Pointer: accessorize.
You are not the feminine girlie type. This is your print: show off your character and decisiveness. Geometries are a bold print. The effect is created largely by the choice of colours: they need to have an impact. Pointer: the shoes should equal this effect.
