Prints have been on high rotation throughout spring/summer, with florals and spots being our go-to patterns. And even though winter is now approaching, there's no reason to go back to black.

Colour-phobe? Here’s your friendly reminder that just because you’re going printed doesn’t mean it has to be bright. The same impact can be achieved through subtle means, just like this newspaper-print midi shirt dress from Stüssy.

White technical sneaks carry on the fresh colour palette, and, for a jolt of colour, some rose-tinted perspex sunnies.
Who said florals are only for spring? Tear up the rulebook for this ankle-grazing dress in silky baby-blues and blush tones. The perfect number to rock all your fancy RSVPs this season, the flattering wrap shape, relaxed sleeves and fabric button detailing give it a truly $$$ feel. To finish, add red-hot vinyl bow heels to give a dash of edgy appeal to all this outfit prettiness. Win-win.
