I love a good print in my clothing. Especially in spring/ summer, I love decking myself out in a good print. Prints can be worn year round of course, but especially the brighter ones, I tend to love during this time of year. There is nothing that speaks to me like a fun printed dress to spruce up my summer wardrobe! I thought I’d share with you my 5 favorite prints that I cannot get enough of.
Can you guess what my favorites are?
In this selection there are a few monochrome prints, as well as some colorful ones. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have items in my closet that have those prints in different colors. I have many floral printed items in my wardrobe, from more light and bright ones to more muted and dark ones. I find that the color scheme of the print is what makes it appropriate for a certain time of year, not the print itself. I tend to wear darker shades during fall/ winter and the brighter ones during spring/ summer.
New Look monochrome polka dot print cropped top
Polka dot print is definitely my number 1 print. Where it can look a tad childish if worn incorrectly, polka dot prints are still a staple in my wardrobe. I still have many dresses, shirts and skirts with this pattern. It all comes down to how you style it. I like to wear a top like this with a flirty skirt and the key to this print is to have a monochrome palette to keep it classy.
Only plaid fleece button up shirt
Plaid print is a print I don’t wear too often during this season, but it is a staple in my fall wardrobe. Especially in the shape of a plaid flannel shirt. I have a few that are red & blue, monochrome and even one with a hint of purple, but this one has to be my favorite. It has an oversized, masculine fit and I can throw this one with nearly everything.
H&M black & white striped cropped top
Stripes are another one of those staples that cannot be missing from any wardrobe I feel. Again, this is a very versatile little print. From tops to bottoms: a good stripe can make or break any outfit. I prefer mine black and white but I don’t put it beyond myself to be putting in a little bit of color. I have yellow and white striped skater dress that I love for instance!
Asos tropical print skater dress
Tropical print is one that I only like if it is done right. Like the one in this dress! For the longest time I wanted to have a dress with a palm tree print and I couldn’t find it anywhere, until I spotted this. The fit of this is spot on and I love how the palm trees look ‘real’ rather than very stylized and printed. The entire dress just breathes bounty island, and that’s exactly what I like about tropical print.
Forever 21 bright floral skater skirt
Last but not least is the floral print. I think that when it comes to dress, that florals are the print you will find most in that section of my closet. I own a few floral skirts and pants, but it is simply my favorite print to put on a dress. It comes in so many varieties and so many different colors and different flowers that I find endless prints that I like and love to wear. This dress is one of my favorites and the reason? Its print of course! I love the colors and tiny roses.

Polka dots zijn absoluut ook mijn favoriet! Én ananassen en aardbeien, die prints vindt ik voor mijn dochter heel erg leuk.
Als ik jonger was geweest had ik een jurkje gekocht met flamingo’s erop. True story!
