6 Fun Print Trends Guaranteed to Make You Smile This Summer

Summer colour trends are a bit of a given, aren't they? Yellow, pink, green—these are shades that return in one way or another every warm-weather season. Don't get us wrong. There's nothing we love more than a joyful colour palette, but what we find even more interesting are the summer prints that come out to play this time of year.

Print trends are way more unpredictable than colour trends. Yes, you can always expect to see florals, but how they're going to be interpreted that season is anyone's guess. (Spoiler alert: This year is all about retro, '70s-style blooms.) Then, there are checks. After years spent favouring gingham, now everyone in the know has become borderline obsessed with checkerboard.

These are perhaps the two dominating print trends of the summer, but don't worry if they don't float your sartorial boat. There is a host of other print microtrends you can get on board with that'll give your wardrobe an instant 2021 refresh. Scroll below to see what we consider to be the top summer print trends right now.
