When it comes to this season’s wardrobe, more is definitely more. Whether you’re a pattern-clashing aficionado or someone who tends to err on the side of subtlety, allow our edit to guide you through the wonderful world of print – from paisley to leopard, and beyond.
Those who take an all-or-nothing approach to print are sure to appreciate this striking Loewe shirt, which makes a case against minimalism in typically sophisticated style. Contrasting patches of paisley slot asymmetrically together in a way that nods to traditional craftsmanship, while still maintaining a contemporary feel. Best served with jeans and a pair of sneakers.
Because you can’t talk about prints without mentioning Versace. Go all-in on the Italian house’s instantly recognisable aesthetic with a retro-inspired bomber jacket.
Magic In Monochrome
If you and your wardrobe tend to gravitate towards a neutral palette, have no fear; a striking monochrome print will still pack a punch.
Once the quintessential backpacker’s uniform, the paisley trouser has undergone a slick renaissance; look to Etudes for a pair perfect for weekends in the city.
One cardigan, two trends: a nostalgic print that borrows from the house’s archives, and a nod to contemporary logo mania. Ideal for tricky transeasonal months, Gucci’s preppy knit will play a starring role in any off-duty wardrobe; simply throw over a shirt and some classic denim for an effortlessly sophisticated finish.
Flora & Fauna
Whether it’s summer in the city or a seaside getaway, a tropical shirt is a warm-weather staple. Blooming with flowers, Rhude’s bright iteration offers a modern take on the traditional Aloha shirt.
Never forget fashion’s fun factor. A quirky print, such as the one that covers this Paul Smith tee, offers a super-simple way of adding some charm to your everyday look.
When all else fails, there’s the universally accepted method of incorporating print into an ensemble with minimal effort – an eccentric tie. Pineapple, anyone?
