Now we love a good print, but we honestly couldn’t have predicted how much at the forefront they would be on the runway this year. From provocative slogans and geometric shapes to checkered prints and florals, fashion has been influenced by the variety of prints. And we’re loving it!
Here we will take a look at some of the hottest (and personal favorites) fashion prints of 2017.
#1: Stripes on duty
Stripes have never been so dynamic, pervasive and ubiquitous. And we’re totally okay with that! While stripes have always had that summery note about them, this time around their happy, summer flair gets a modern lift with bold color schemes and textures.
Where We Spotted the Look: Virtually all stripy pieces we’ve spotted on the runways are awesome stripe solutions, whether they are knitted flirty dresses at Proenza Schouler, poised, flirty and practical Faithfull clothing line or Adam Selman’s shimmering knitwear and a transparent maxi stunner in tangerine and coral.
#2: Floral maps everywhere
It’s obvious that floral prints continue to be a popular motif staple among designers. And this time around, floras are looking more like walking canvas art. With splashes of bright, colorful flowers in a variety of sizes gracing the runway.
Where We Spotted the Look: The Michael Kors collection was among some of the designers we saw using floral prints.
#3: Pop culture alarmed
It is no surprise that ready-to-wear fashion has been showing a kick-start on the fashion scene for a few years now, with pop culture elements and prints taking the lead.
Where We Spotted the Look: Pop culture prints and elements came paired with plenty of designers’ national background motifs, unusual shapes, splashing colors and shimmering vibes throughout the runway walk.
#4: Gingham and Prince of Wales… with plaid
These are the three prints that have always been the epitome of classic, and they’ve kept their status intact on the runways of some of the most popular fashion capitals of the world. Prada sported a range of Gingham prints in blazers and skirts both in muted and vibrant shades.
Where We Spotted the Look: Black and white classic gingham was incredibly dominant throughout. Carolina Herrera in particular, featured black and white classic gingham while Pringle of Scotland gave rise to gingham-patterned dresses and sweaters vs chocolate shaded plaid utilitarian dresses.
