There are prints, prints and more prints everywhere this season. Actually, since last season, prints of all sorts have been in focus. Florals, animal prints, geometricals, graphic prints, tribal prints -- big and small and in hosts of colours— are dominating the ramps as well as the shops.
From skirts to dresses; from pants to clutches and scarves—everything is looking cheerful in vibrant prints.

So if you have always been too conscious to wear a print, this is the time to embrace this trend.
Pair your patterned garment with a black, nude, khaki or colour-block skirt or trouser. Or get an uptown look with a short dress in an interesting print. In case of animal prints, wear either your top or bottom in a solid color, preferably black or beige.

Whether you fancy wide-legged pants or ankle-skimming skirts or tight trousers, you will find them in panoramic prints. If you are still not too sure, start with a printed clutch/tote or scarf.

Chuck your necklace and settle for a bracelet instead with a printed top. But then, if your style statement demands several necklaces around your dainty neck—go for the bling!
Fashion experts have always warned against wearing prints from head-to-toe and but to stick to one printed garment. But breaking all rules, fashionistas are wearing clashing prints all over this season. So if you can pull it off, go for it. Pair big prints with smaller ones for a polished look.
