Pretty in print

When we previewed the trends on their way for this autumn, prints in all guises were high on our list of what to look out for.

But there is no need to wait: our shops are brimming with beautiful patterns right now.

Here are just a few of our favourite pieces, with tips on how to style them for the months to come, whatever the occasion or the weather. 

Graphic florals

Daisies, but not as you know them, are to be found scattered across frocks and skirts, including this full skirted midi-dress with a flattering square-cut neckline.

Sugarhill Brighton Raquel dress £69

While this flowing, mid-length skirt with pockets (yes!) has a vintage feel and will see you through the autumn when teamed with boots and a cropped sweater.

Louche Edie skirt £48.99

Shorts for all, we say. Especially this pretty flowery printed pair.

Vero Moda Easy shorts £15


Delicate geometrics

Modern, and very sophisticated. If you’re not one for the boldest ‘out there’ prints, then this is the trend for you.

Graphic patterns are really on trend right now, and will be right through into 2023. So get a head start with this flattering A-line dress in a luxurious shiny fabric. 

Bruuns Bazaar Acacia dress £119.95


Nature reimagined

Sweeping, swirling oversized florals are everywhere. Come into one of our stores to delve into a wonderful range this spring: and to whet your appetite, we’ve picked out some of our favourites.

A shirt dress is always flattering and good with heels, flats or trainers for maximum versatility.

This gorgeous cover up in burnt orange, with a stylised leaf pattern, is a flexible piece that will be a holiday favourite.
