CATWALK TREND DECODED

Boss New Year style in clashing prints

By Maybelle Morgan, 5 January 2016

Make way for the 2K16 print clash, giving your florals a new-season update with loud and proud mismatched patterns. First seen on the Coach prairie girls for SS16, it scores major day-to-date-night points with a simple shoe swap. See how Saoirse Ronan nailed it and how you can get in on the drama.

Prints ran riot at Coach's SS16 show, with models strutting down the catwalk in clash-tastic drop-waist dresses. Think oh-so-pretty ditsy patterns meets wild flower pleating, toughened up with leather biker jackets and ankle boots. What rulebook?

Irish beauty Saoirse Ronan brought the noise at this week’s Palm Springs Gala, smashing it in a print-on-print-on-print Duro Olowu long-sleeved midi dress. SR sealed the red-carpet deal with a granny-chic pearl necklace and blood-orange peep-toes.

Try it out

After that pretty-meets-sassy wardrobe win? Folk it up in this tile/polka dot/floral print combo maxi dress (yes, it seriously works). Take it to dinner with black peep-toe heels or pair with buckle suede boots for that daytime boho-babe vibe.
