Printed dresses and playsuits for summer

It’s official - summer is nearly here! And with summer comes my favourite kind of fashion; printed dresses and playsuits. Prints have been witnessed all over the Spring/Summer ’12 catwalks, so whether you’re after something a little bit loud and crazy or subtle and understated there is definitely something on the high street for you this summer. Here’s a breakdown of my favourite prints for summer 2012.

Novelty prints
I first fell in love with novelty prints after seeing Prada’s cartoon Cadillac print, and since then I’ve seen lots of novelty prints online.  My favourite has to be the Boston Dog print dress from Brat & Suzie as it’s fun and a little bit quirky.

However, for something a little less in your face I like the Lipstick playsuit from Vero Moda.

Floral Prints
Florals are a summer time classic. No summer wardrobe would be complete without at least one floral piece. I love this ditzy floral playsuit by Vila Clothes - it would look great paired with subtle girly accessories and a tan!

Animal Prints
Forget about the usual animal prints like leopard and zebra for summer. This season it’s all about the bird print. There are many variations of this trend but for summer I particularly like the vintage inspired pigeon print dress from 18 and East.

So, out of these fantastic prints which one will you be wearing this summer?


  1. I love the top dress. Its super cute!

  2. Wow, that dog print dress looks really fun! Although I have to say that I am always a sucker for a floral print so, if I had to choose from any of the above, I would probably go for the ditzy floral print playsuit! I love looking at summery clothes... cheers me up and gets me excited for the sun!
