Liberty can keep their cutesy, ditsy, teeny weeny floral prints, hell yeah. This spring/summer we’re all about big prints. Big, bold, standout, big prints. Yeah!
Fashion is having a bit of a big prints moment, with everything from shoes to trousers, culottes,skirts,dresses and tops adorned with big prints – be they floral, tropical, or geometric or graphic.
This is not a moment for the faint of heart. This is a big prints = bold statements moment – are you brave enough? This week’s Weekly Wishlist is our fave big prints! Time to go big!
Of course you are. If you really aren’t feeling it, perhaps a pair of bold floral sandals will be enough (£25, Red Herring @ Debenhams). But we suggest a top – something bright, or monochrome, with a fab big pattern. Big prints in the shape of huge florals look great in green and blue on white in this J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams top (£35). Pair it with jeans for a fab effect, or tuck it into a voluminous midi skirt. The same designer uses such huge prints on a simple shift dress (bottom right, £65), it’s difficult to even recognise them as florals. The flowers are more subtle, but still big, on the lovely v-neck dress from French Connection (£110). H&M’s black and white floral top (£14.99) is more subtle as well.
Navy ankle length slightly boot cut trousers, with jade green big florals? Yep. They’re a thing. Get them at H&M (£29.99). Red Herrings black crop top (£32) at Debenhams with a great aqua floral is cute. Of course big prints don’t have to be florals. How fantastically tropically summery is New Look’s leaf print midi skirt (£22.99)? And there’s a top to match!
White Stuff’s cap sleeve top (£37.50) is heavy on the leaf print too, and the deep green and hints of yellow make a lovely print for spring. Finally Betty Jackson.Black @ Debenhams have taken a big red floral print, softened it, and made it summery beautiful with a cream background, on a slouchy half-sleeved top (£45).
Go big or go home!
