Graphic prints – Weekly Wishlist

There’s a graphic prints trend coming this autumn/winter, so brace yourself, and be ready to adopt them.

Don’t be too scared – they’re not all huge, bright, bold 1960s style graphic prints. But there are some like that. This trend is probably one that will fly mostly under the radar, and you should be selective with your prints – don’t just bung on any old printed thing.

To help you decipher the graphic prints trend early in the season, we’ve chose it as our Weekly Wishlist, because we are here to help!

So, start, perhaps with a lovely geometric print dress (£45, JOY) in an acidic bright. Ora bright, bold psychedelic style print in berries and reds like the super shift from Principles @ Debenhams (£35).

Also at Principles, there’s a block patchwork graphic prints style sweater (£35). New Look’s suede-look 1970s style patchwork skirt isn’t strictly a graphic print, but this patchwork look is one to embrace this season.

Weekly Wishlist graphic printsBHS’s long-line midi skirt (£25) has a geometric graphic feel to it. H&M’s tube skirt (£7.99) has a linear graphic design. Betty Jackson Black’s monochrome graphic prints coat (£75) is a winter musthave from Debenhams. Bring the 80s back with this fantastic coat!

Another 80s classic, and a fashion classic, and essentially could be classed as a graphic print is dogtooth check. We love French Connection’s red and black check and dogtooth check sweater (£80).

H&M’s triangular graphic prints dress (£12.99) is a cute late summer to autumn transitional piece – just add leggings when it’s cold. Graphic prints look great on shift dresses. New Look’s blue based shift (£29.99) has a great design, and Principles @ Debenhams’ pink and black print dress (£50) has a great Art Deco vibe to it.

Finally, French Connection’s bright abstract digital graphic prints trousers (£80) will brighten up any autumn day.

The Great Gatsby Style

The most talked about movie for months, The Great Gatsby, finally hits cinemas this month. The Baz Luhrman version of F Scott Fitzgerald’s 1920s set novel, promises to be bold, bright and beautifully Art Deco – the style of the time.

The 1920 flapper style is easy to tap into for an everyday look – don’t go wearing a flapper dress, a sequin headband and doing the Charleston, however – that’s not stylish, that’s fancy dress.

But do think sequins, beads, and floaty simple shapes, and you’ll be Great Gatsby-ready!

So, take elements of the 1920s style with angular, Art Deco shapes for jewellery, and simple sequinned shift dresses, or tops.
