Below: Saw this olive green floral patterend Gucci tote this weekend... love at first sight...
Prints are a definite must have for Spring Summer 2014. Not only for the girls but also for the boys. There has never been a better time to inject some flamboyance and colour to usher in the new warmer months. From florals to graphic patterns, prints appear on almost any aspect of the wardrobe... Shoes, shirts, trousers, bags and more. Wear them for vacations, hit the beaches... Injecting colours and pattern will excite any wardrobe and give new dimension to your style.
Here’s some great pieces I found to help kick start your summer prints adoption...
1) Nothing better than shoes to wear prints and florals. Footwear in patterned designs will always be fun and not an overkill. Sneakers and slip-ons are perfect for casual days outdoors enjoying the sun. While hitting the stores this weekend, I spotted 2 graphic and floral print sneakers from Zara which is visually appealing and easy on your pockets. One features a floral pattern in browns and taupe while the other is an exciting green hue geometric pattern. I love them! At SGD109... definitely worth considering for the new season. Besides Zara, Peter Pilotto for Target’s affordable and chic collection includes 2 interesting patterned slip-ons. Again, one in floral and one in a monotone geometric pattern. At USD40 on Net-a-porter, they are summertime’s best buys! Just buy a couple of sizes up if you are a guy, since the collection is for the fairer gender.
2) Canvas totes are summertime’s best companion. And with floral prints, they become summertime’s most appropriate and formidable style statement. I love Gucci’s olive green floral canvas tote (Euro695... and Singapore’s Gucci store has them in stock!). Using a olive tone background retains masculinity to the otherwise feminine pattern and tone them down jus right for the boys. And if budget allows, the tote cum backpack design in perforate floral print leather is functional and cool.
Time to welcome sunny days with patterns!
