With a whole new selection of spring arrivals to choose from, THIS trend is becoming increasingly clear - or unclear, depending on how you look at it! We knew there would be new and interesting prints to choose from, many of them mixed prints, but fresh abstract prints are now starting to take shape, and should definitely be included when building up your new spring wardrobe!
Abstract comes in many shapes and sizes - it can be smudged floral, an assortment of random geomteric patterns, or just a pattern that you can't quite define (tough to put your finger on - not quite striped, or floral, or anything else really!). The prints are mostly oversized, making a stronger statement than normal, so keep your accessories to a minimum.

Some of the items below are perfect for the office (you can wear a black boyfriend jacket over the dress if you feel the print is a little loud), or a smart print top would look great with a chic pencil skirt and statement nude pumps. And by all means, if you feel the need for colour, match your handbag to a colour in the print - it's totally in again!
Evening is where this trend really shines - there are some really lovely bold shift dresses that would look great with strappy gold sandals, or for the winter months, opaque black tights and ankle boots will show off a pop of print that will look fresh and forward!
