If the dark mornings, storms, and cold winds are anything to go by, this winter is going to need a healthy dose of colour to brighten things up. The autumn/winter runways gave us plenty of new hues to work into our wardrobes for the season ahead (and baby blue, chocolate brown, and arctic whites are top of my list), but for those looking for something a little more exciting than head-to-toe tonal, it’s time to talk about some VIPs. That’s very important print trends.
Remember the year everyone was “hot for the spot” and that Zara dress became a worldwide sensation? Or how about the most quoted line in The Devil Wears Prada? (and yes florals for spring will always be groundbreaking). Such is the power of the perfect print that our wardrobes don’t feel complete without one, and while we patiently wait for Kate Moss to step out in another leopard print coat signalling the true start of winter, it’s well worth looking at the other print trends causing a stir right now.
More is more in 2023, and even the most minimalist brands are working printed pieces into their collections (see micro spots from Sacai, painted florals from Lanvin, and some very abstract moments from Victoria Beckham). So if you’ve already got your winter coat, stocked up on knits, and are looking for an exciting way elevate your wardrobe this winter, keep scrolling. Here are the 6 new print trends that you’re about to see a lot more of over the next few months, and there’s something for everyone.
