Put your stripes and polka dots on pause, because prints are getting a revamp this season! From renaissance-inspired art decor prints to colour-blocked animal prints, it’s about thinking (and dressing) outside of the box! To get you started on this statement-making trend, we’ve rounded up the best printed pieces you definitely won’t be able to resist.


Art Decor Prints


If you think that pumps are only for the corporate hustlers, think again. This gold woven number, heavily influenced by Egyptian and Aztec styles, is truly the modern update we thought we’d never get from classic pumps. Besides its eclectic design, the jewels encrusted at the front add such a perfect statement detail to the shoe, bringing a vintage elegance and charm with you everywhere you go.


Sexy and incredibly chic, it’s safe to say that slip dresses will never go out of style. Blending traditional wallpaper print with black and white illustrated print, this dress offers a new and fresh perspective to the 90’s staple. You can layer it over a basic white tee and some kitten heels to give it a more feminine vibe or toughen up the look with a leather jacket and patent boots to bring out the inner rocker-chic in you.


Colour-blocked Animal Prints


Animal prints have been everywhere this year, ruling street and runway fashion since Spring! If you are just starting to experiment on this trend, incorporating a subtle streak of python to your shoes won’t hurt. Layered in accents of black, white and silver, these boots are definitely an upgrade from the basic black ankle boot, bringing the perfect amount of edge to your outfit.


If you are one for bolder and brighter outfits, this one’s for you. With its daring combination of semi-organic shapes abstractly laid in striking technicolour, this luxe dress takes a modern twist on the classic leopard printed dress! The best part? No animals were harmed in the making of this eye-catching piece.


Modern Geometric Prints


Along with the plaids and tartans, modern geometric motifs are also making a comeback this fall. With a bold fusion of red, green and purple geometric prints, this bold piece screams retro-fun — perfect for those who are down to have a good time be it in the day or at night.


Handbags are also getting the geometric print treatment this season. This mini velvet handbag expertly marries the symmetrical geometric cuts with its subtle snakeskin detailing, making it a super luxe and fashion-forward piece this season. With its vivid colours and contrasting textures, this standout bag will give your look the extra oomph it needs!
