While our fondness for cheeky animal patterns will never dwindle, there’s a new novelty item on our radar for spring: map prints. Spotted on everything from bomber jackets to swingy summer dresses and chunky footwear too, typographical motifs are every bit as stylish as they are a cool find. And while these maps may not actually lead you to a hidden treasure, they’re sure to take your spring wardrobe to the next level of chic. As such, we’re showing you three of our favourite map-print pieces to try now.
1. Juicy Couture California Track Jacket ($268)
The Golden State has never looked so stylish! This sporty zip-up from Juicy Couture offers a more playful take on the trend, thanks to the jacket's bright blue ocean hue and hand-painted landmarks.
2. Madewell Mapview Dress ($138, available March)
The detailed black and white map keeps this ladylike dress feeling polished and work-appropriate—perfect for the professional world traveller. Add a neon belt to give the neutral piece a stylish finish. We also recommend checking out the brand’s scarf and bandana versions!
3. Carven Engraving of Paris Platform Wedges ($560)
Don’t be surprised if you get a handful of double takes while wearing these Carven chunkies. The platform wedge is a Paris street scene, giving the statement shoes that extra je ne sais quoi.
