Statement Prints Spring 2018

It’s kind of difficult to summarize the statement prints spring 2018 as it much alike the eclecticism of the 1980s fashion, includes quite a lot of different prints and styles. So much that I can almost say that any style of print that makes a statement of some sort is a safe choice if you want to stay on the trendy side. Perhaps the animal prints as leo and zebra are a bit extra trendy due to the 1980s fashion. Stripes, florals, check patterns are all trendy, but perhaps not as statement as you can go with the trend if you consider the regular style of the prints. But with everything, find the prints with a fun twist and that statement is there! Prints with a more artsy motif, are also trendy and for sure an interesting one. The thing to consider when choosing a print is that you feel comfortable in it! Louis Vuitton, Dior, Diane Von Furstenberg, Gucci, Leonard Paris,  Emanuel Ungaro and Temperley London are some designers that went for the statement print in their resort collections!

How To Work The Prints

What I like about the statement prints is that they’re, believe it or not, fairly easy to style. As they often take much of the attention in an outfit, you can keep the rest of the styling low-key. Match with a neutral clothing piece sans details, or bold colors, and you’re pretty much there. You can also try this fashion hack I talked about last week. If you go for a dress or jumpsuit in a statement print, leave the accessories simple and let the print do it’s thing. With that said, when you’re in need of a fashionable outfit, but have no energy or time to create a fierce outfit by the actions of styling, choose a clothing piece in a fierce print. It’s kind of like having a denim and white t-shirt outfit to rely on, but even better as a statement print is a bit more elevated. The statement prints are also favorable to do monochromatic as they weirdly enough can be a bit neutralizing when done in a bigger scale.

Some Inspiration

Lastly, some inspiration! I love the first outfit with the artsy print of the pantsuit and how the light shade of the print is kept that way with the white shirt. The outfit with the stripes is also chic with the monochromatic style. The third outfit serves as great inspo for how the print can be done in the office style without getting to crazy! Just remember to find a print you enjoy and work it in a way you enjoy, either by matching it with neutral pieces or explore the statement style.

    • Yes! Hope you got some great ideas from the article then! Xx

  1. It is so difficult to make a quick recap about prints right? As you I have seen so many prints in the latest collections that it is impossible to choose just one! But in my opinion most of the prints presented are more or less guided by the Gucci vibe so I bet we will continue seeing similar prints with surrealistic flowers and nature ornaments. Do you think they will last for many seasons? Personally I like them, but I don’t know if we will ever get tired of them, eventually.
    Best!

    • Hahah right? I didn’t even know where to begin! Yes, Gucci definitely has a big part in the crazy print-mania atm and I adore it. I’m not too sure how long it’ll last though, trends that are quite distinct tend to fade out quickly. On the other hand, prints comes in so many different styles so it’s easy to switch and by doing so – experience new styles of prints! Xx

  2. Statement prints are so fun for spring! That last suit is to die for!
