The Latest Prints Making a Comeback For Hot Girl Summer

Prints have made a major comeback in recent months and this summer will be no different. Animal prints, such as cow or zebra, have particularly dominated the scene.  I am going to explore this trend by looking at some of the best options from various fashion brands. 


Kicking it off with some cow print fashion, ASOS have hit all the right notes with some beautiful stylings of the cow print. First up are these stunning mid platform boots from Public Desire for €45.99. These quirky boots are perfect for some outdoor drinks with your pals this summer. I love these boots because they are a staple piece that can be worn during any season. They could be paired with some flares or a cute mini skirt depending on the occasion. If you want a full cow print look check out this sexy mini bodycon from Motel. This can also be bought from Asos for €52.99. 


For a 70s print look, why not check out some fabulous flares. Nasty Gal are where it’s at when it comes to print flares. They also have some amazing plus size options, such as these leopard print pants. The flares are currently reduced to just €14 and would look great paired with a coloured crop top and a denim jacket for the summer season. Adding a splash of colour to animal print works best so keep this in mind when choosing accessories or outerwear. 


Paisley is another print style which I haven’t seen as much of but is definitely deserving of its moment. The paisley print also gives off some serious 70s vibes and Nasty Gal have these beautiful high waisted flare trousers on offer for just €10.40 at the moment. The flares feature a high-waisted, flared silhouette and elasticized waist. For the ultimate look, these flares would look perfect teamed with a pastel bodysuit and cute Converse trainers. 


Of course, it wouldn’t be summer without floral prints and Vavavoom have a wide selection of gorgeous floral print dresses to give you that classy date night look or an outfit for a cute brunch with the girls. The Zorcha Floral Open Back Ruched Midi Dress  is a stunning dress for any occasion and is available in both lilac and blue. It features a wrap over v neck, short puff sleeve and high low hem and is €36. For the perfect night look, pair with some open toe heels and a clutch or shoulder bag. For a more casual vibe, some white trainers would be ideal. 


Another floral dress from Vavavoom also worth mentioning is the Viv Red Floral Milkmaid Midi Dress for €30. The slit front and sweetheart neckline make for a sleek sexy look. This could be worn with a leather jacket at night and paired with boots. 


For those seeking to make a big fashion statement this season, why not wear something different and eye-catching like this beige abstract print zip top from Pretty Little Thing. For maximum impact team this with a pair of cute cream or beige shorts or with a long flowing skirt for a more sophisticated styling. The top features a beige woven material, an abstract print, and a cross over design and is on sale for €19. 


Prints are so fun to play around with so don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone with a daring print and some vibrant colours. You won’t be the only one rocking the crazy trend this summer.
