The Moodboard: Summer Prints
A change of season is the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe with statement pieces that convey a sense of optimism. For Spring/Summer 2020 we look to sophisticated prints that champion the new mood of the season with animal prints, feminine florals, and large-scale graphic checks leading the charge.
Read on to discover how our buying team have styled their key pieces for the season as part of The Forme’s Spring 2020 campaign.
This season designers re-imagine animal print, looking to muted tones and graphic spliced patterns to add a fresh new spin to the ongoing print trend
VERGE’s ‘Feline’ print cleverly combines zebra, cheetah, tiger, and snake prints with geometric checks, florals and polka dots–a considered, refined approach to the trend that lends it a seasonless edge.
Rather than head-to-toe bold animal prints, pare it back by setting yours against monochrome separates to temper the severity of an all-black look or the humdrum of an all-white ensemble. Keep your outfit recipe simple by styling a Rosemunde silk tank under VERGE’s Feline Jacket or Feline Shirt, and pair with white denim and simple accessories. If you’re feeling confident, the brown-tones work perfectly with gold jewellery.
Not one for animal prints? Graphic check prints add a distinctly modern edge to your Spring wardrobe.
VERGE’s ‘Tangent’ print is a large scaled diagonal check with beige and black tones, spliced with cross hatch panels.
The easiest way to style graphic prints? Pick a tone from the print and use it to guide your selection of separates. Keep accessory choices minimal–strappy sandals and fine gold jewellery hit the mark.
Florals for spring? It might not be ground-breaking but there's no better new season boost. For 2020, flowers are more girly than gothic, with muted colours, and pastel tones reigning supreme.
Match floating silhouettes from womenswear labels like MISA Los Angeles and LUXE DELUXE with pared back accessories to let your movements embody a romantic tone.
Looking for florals that pack more of a punch? VERGE’s ‘Shadowbox’ print is a maximalist’s dream with two-toned large-scale florals adorning a classic bomber silhouette. The colour-ways in the Shadowbox Jacket cleverly incorporate the hues of the label’s new season Acrobat offering making styling a no-brainer: pair like-with-like.
