It's a print thing

Every new season there's always one trend that I get really excited about and this spring summer 2012 is no exception. After wrapping up in knitwear for what feels like forever I cannot wait to invest in scarf prints which I will be wearing from head to toe.

Dolce & Gabbana showcased this look perfectly, with an explosion of pastel coloured prints and luxurious fabrics which flowed elegantly down the catwalk.Look out for smooth fabrics with a silky sheen for extra glamour.

Some of the models sported luxe matching separates, such as the shorts and jacket combo (worn with a crisp white shirt) whilst others dared to be different and clashed their colours to the extreme. If you don't feel confident enough to take on the entire D&G inspired look, add accents of the print to your outfits by wearing scarf print shorts with a block coloured blouse, or try some baroque print tapered trousers.

This trend is also great fun for those who love to accessorise. Think bold and brash gold collar necklaces, statement gold disc earings and platform wedges with scarf print ties which fasten in pretty bows around the ankle. If you prefer subtle accessories why not try a printed scarf, belt (matching print of course) or boxy clutch bag with a golden wrist strap.

Take a look at the official D&G spring summer catwalk show 2012..
