A foolproof guide to wearing power prints this season

It’s the season of the print, as both menswear and womenswear labels seem to be shedding the monochromatic tones of winter for something a little more vivid. An aesthetic championed on the runways of Gucci, Prada, Dior and Louis Vuitton (among others), the industry-wide call to pick up something printed does not mean that it’s an easy trend to nail down. For the cautious, we recommend starting with something subtle, for the fearless, a head-to-toe approach will pay off provided you know what you’re doing.

Endeavouring to help you harness the power of the print this season, we’ve rounded up some pieces to fold into your spring wardrobe. From loud florals to cool monochrome to basic, printed tees, there are a number of ways to buy into this trend.
