Spring is a time when we dare to be bold, as the sun shines a little longer a rainbow of prints spill out of our wardrobes. 2017 trends offer an array of vibrant prints that re-define feminity and present a confident look with vivid motifs and graphics. Designers build capsule collections around each trend, such as Paul Smith’s seventies inspired patterns, which re-connect to his original designs, and we see florals return, yet with more attitude, from Micahel Kors, Erdem and Balenciaga. We want to show-off some of our favourite print trends which are now available from Jules B, explore the new arrivals range and create your own individual look, with cutting edge designer prints.
Big or small, uniformed or arbitrary, polka dots cropped in our wardrobes for the new season. The seemingly simple print has a childish appeal to add character to your outfit, such as the Vivetta off the shoulder blouse, which uses polka dots to embody the playful nature of the brand. Don’t go dotty from head-to-toe, the very versatile pattern is ideal to style alongside various prints like stripes, florals and checks.
Our obsession with retro designs has not dwindled, to complement our sweater vests and flare jeans, 70’s inspired prints take pride on the catwalks once more. Paul Smith knows this decade all too well and brings us re-imagined looks from his fashion origins through vibrant flower and tropical impressions, the Cockatoo Shirt is a truly unique piece and sure to be a firm favourite this season.
It is a brave new era for fashion, in-your-face prints are re-defined with a strong feminine attitude. This eccentric trend is inherently wearable, through graphic motifs and statement stripes, the artistic movement on today’s catwalk empowers us to dress with more individuality. Isabel De Pedro is renowned for a modernised elegance, in her Spring/Summer collection, star-bursts and geometric spirals inject colour and drama to dresses and tops.
Florals cannot be missed in a Spring collection and this year we are dressing ourselves up and down in the dainty print. Although at first seemingly delicate, flowers are tough and strong, the perfect symbol for this new-wave of femininity. The contemporary designer brand, High, gives their structural designs a softness with artistic floral patterns, the layered cotton top has a beautiful waterfall drape and tie waist to suggest an ethereal look.
