Prints charming - how to wear and love prints for summer

Summer prints... whether you love a bold tropical print, or prefer a pretty floral, we've got a beautiful edit of patterned pieces for your summer wardrobe. In our style blog this week we'll show you how to style them with wardrobe staples to get the most out of their bold designs.

Summer Print Dresses

We have converted many a customer to a summer print dress - there's a style and shape to suit everyone. The micro floral shirt dress from Ichi is right on-trend this season, worn with crisp white trainers and a denim jacket it's a not too girly floral, for the tom boy dresser. The jungle print Adriana shirt dress from Vilagallo is unapologetically bold with its tropical botanical print. The navy background however makes it really wearable, a great easy shape to wear in the heat - simply pick out one of the accent tones in your accessories and you're holiday ready. Finally, for even the most print adverse - a stripe dress still counts! This cornflower blue shirt dress from MbyM is such a summery hue, great with white wedge espadrilles and gold accessories. print shirt dress ichifloral print shirt dressblue shirt dress Left to right: Grace micro floral dress, £65, Ichi Adriana dress, £189, Vilagallo Ellia Dress, £99, MbyM

Summer Print Skirts

If you're unsure about prints, add in a pattern to one element of your outfit as a good easy introduction. Pair this beautiful red print maxi from Ichi with a simple black vest and thong sandals for a relaxed, boho look. This frill, wrap skirt, also by Ichi is THE shape of the summer - great paired with a crisp white tee. If you're looking for something that will see you into autumn, this jersey maxi from Baum und Pferdgarten is great right now with a colour block cami, then with a Rosemunde vest, cardi and boots come autumn.

Animal Print Separates

Our favourite print this season is the cleo print from MbyM - wear their two separates together for a jumpsuit dupe - the nude background is super flattering and it's infinitely more practical to wear than a one-piece! You've also got the flexibility to wear the trousers with a chambray shirt and the top with black capri pants - the combinations are endless!

Animal print tops

The summer print trend for animal, from leopard to feather, is going nowhere - the white Sugarhill Brighton tee is a light, bright twist on the classic print for summer, while the bold Jasbir blouse from Baum und Pferdgarten is a great summer pop of colour, paired with black capri pants or a maxi skirt. The Vilagallo feather shirt is great for summer workwear, lightweight, cool and equally perfect at the weekend with denim cut offs and espadrilles.

Tie-dye Scarves

The print of the summer is tie-dye, seen on the catwalks earlier this year and gradually filtering down to us mere mortals. These cotton Pranella scarves are a great buy for summer holidays; big enough to double as a sarong and finished with tassels, they're a great way of adding an on-trend summer print update to your wardrobe. tie dye scarves tie dye sarong tie dye cotton sarong scarf Pranella Scarves, £39
