You can choose from prints and geometric patterns to polka dots, stripes and florals to get ready for the spring-summer season, says the Woman’s World Team, as they bring you put-together looks to welcome the season in style

Thanks to inspiring and interesting patterns, prints are all the rage in the fashion world. To make sure you are summer-ready, we bring to you a few print trends that you can add to your spring wardrobe this season. Choose from vintage ’60s florals and slogan prints or opt for the tried-and-tested polka dots. There’s a lot that you can do with prints this season.

Look 1: Summer days, drifting away

It’s time for long, leisurely walks in the soft, summer sun. Head over to the park with your favourite book in hand or gather your girls and spend an evening chattering over a pitcher of iced tea. Whatever your idea of a lazy day, this outfit will put you right in the mood.

We love ethnic styles, and light cotton kurtas adorned with pastel hues and bright prints are perfect for the smouldering heat of the summer. However, new fashion trends have unionised our traditional wear to suit western styles. Suitable for a lunch meeting, a coffee date or just about any casual occasion, this look is an Indo-western style suited for the summer.

Look 5: Dress in style

Summer doesn’t always need to be about florals and bright colours. A wine-coloured dress is a good way to beat the sun too. But, you’ll need to pay attention to the material, and pick a breezy and comfortable style. Whether it is for a casual work day or a coffee date with friends, this ensemble will keep you fashionable and cool in the hot weather.

Designers’ spring/summer collections are inspiring and interesting and there’s something for everyone. So, whether it’s beautiful shades or pastels that catch your fancy, here’s how to use breezy prints in your wardrobe.

Flaunt it with florals: Bring in the summer with pretty ’60s florals that are unique in shape, size and colour. This signature style is available in flower motifs and bright hues. This is what separates them from other floral prints.

Strike it with stripes: Stripes have been showing up at every fashion week recently. This style is a showstopper in whatever way it is styled — vertical, horizontal, diagonal, pinstripe and dashed. A few sheer striped options took the trend to the next level, such as the one at the Fendi runway, colored in a neutral palette.

Paint it with animal patterns: Animal prints have never fallen out of fashion, but are now making a mammoth impact with updated prints creating a flattering figure. From cow patterns to snakeskin prints, they set the fashion world turning on its heels. So, rock your look by instilling animal prints in your wardrobe this season.

Say it with slogan prints: Statement tops have become a fashion trend in the past few years. From T-shirts to sweaters and accessories, you’ll find them in every fashion wardrobe. Not only are slogan prints interesting and fun to look at, but they have gone viral. So there’s no reason to exclude them from your summer collection.

Play with polka dots: Polka dots have long been dominant in fashion, and are now resurgent in soft pastels, and even in bold black and white monochrome. And, nothing says you’re summer-ready like a splash of polka dots.
