How (and why) to embrace 2018's print clash trend


What if we told you there was a trend that would give you a more unique style, let you wear existing wardrobe favourites more often, and maybe even put the fun back into getting dressed?

You'll be seeing prints everywhere this year - from heritage checks to botanical florals to spots and stripes. But instead of pairing your prints with a plain - although that's a tried-and-tested formula that will always work - the new take is all about mixing it up.

If your beloved Breton stripes are starting to feel a bit tired, try layering a striped shirt over the top. Or if heritage checks feel a bit twee for you, add animal print for a distinctly contemporary feel.

For a more toned-down version, try two of the same but different-sized print: a spotted skirt paired with a small polka dot blouse, for example. Or - the easiest version - a printed silk scarf with a contrasting dress.

One tip for keeping the whole look the right side of eccentric is to keep your silhouette neat. Other than that? Let yourself loose in our print-clash edit and add as many options as you like to your box - then try them all at home to see what works for you.
