To print or not to print? That's the question!


It's been a while since my last fashion blog, but I have recently seen a lot of something which sparked me up to write a new blog!

There seems to be a 'print invasion' happening in the fashion world for both women's and men's fashion. I personally love print, especially on summer dresses to make a statement piece. However, has the print design gone too far?

We have become used to seeing print a lot more, especially since the summer started, but I have noticed that with men's fashion, the print has now 'invaded' the trousers! Printed shirts are a thing of the norm for men now, with various bright styles available (see image below).


For men, the statement pieces that make them stand out from the crowd are definitely now the print trousers. This has been displayed across all the fashion weeks across the world this year with floral prints for men being showcased by designer such as Tom Ford, Valentino and Gucci (see below for Ami and Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2014 prints).

It's certainly a bold statement and in 2012 The Guardian newspaper even had an article called 'Are British Men Ready To Wear Prints?' which shows how different and risky it was seen as at the time. Two years on and these print trousers are one of the highlights of fashion week around the globe! 

I think it's safe to say that these prints will definitely trend in men's fashion over the next few months. It's not a style for everyone, however it's good to try it and see if it fits in with your current wardrobe. The question you have to ask yourself is: will you print, or not print?
