Spring’s approach to style is one that embraces modern femininity, with painterly prints on wind-blown lengths forming the foundations of our warm-weather wardrobes. From muted stripes to modern florals, we take a closer look at how to wear prints in spring, all designed to capture the essence of the season.
1. The Floral Tea Dress
The tea dress is a year-round staple but it is the arrival of warmer weather that makes this key piece feel all the more relevant, particularly when combined with pretty floral prints. Choose a floaty hanky-hem design that moves beautifully when caught in spring’s breeze, styling it with white denim and metallic accessories.
2. The Striped Midi Dress
Although stripes are a perennial part of our wardrobes, this season’s iterations are moving away from classic Breton styles for sugared shades in variegated lines. Adopt spring’s approach the fashion favourite with ruffled midi with rainbow stripes, complementing its colour palette with pastel-hued details.
3. The Striped Cami

Patterned with watercolour-wash stripes, and finished with frilled straps, this cool cami makes a subtle statement without being too overpowering – wear yours with skinny jeans and nude hues.
4. The Floral Maxi Dress
Wild flowers are re-emerging for the season ahead, merging with long, languid lengths to create romantic silhouettes that are so right for spring diary dates.
